Sideline out of bounds basketball plays can be a big part of the game. In the NBA they are used a lot more frequently than they are at the college or high school level, but they are still important at any level. Every out of bounds basketball play is a chance to get your team organized and to run a set basketball play that you have already worked on.
Unless it is an end of game situation where you are up and looking to run time, don’t just look to get the ball in. Look to score or get directly into an offensive action. Set plays are a great way to get good looks at the basket, so don’t waste the opportunity to run them from a sideline out of bounds position.
The quicker you can get your team set and into the offensive play the better, because it limits the defenses time to get set up and defend the play. Another important key to any out of bounds plays is making sure that your players are setting good screens for each other and cutting hard, even if they are not going to get the ball. They must make the defense respect them as an offensive threat, and this will open up the primary receiver.
