A good basketball inbound play has multiple options and makes the defense respect all of the different options. For this basketball play, you want to sell that you are looking for a shooter on the flare screens. This will hopefully make the big men defenders help out on the cut. This will put them out of position, and it opens up the dive to the basket for the layup or dunk. It only works though if the big men set good screens, and the shooter cuts hard off of it. If the post players don’t help on the screen action, the shooter will end up with a shot.
