This play has two parts that work very quickly together. At first, the ball handler up top should pick a side and dribble in that direction. The corresponding wing player on the strong side should look to set up their defender for a backdoor cut. The ball handler should look to split between the elbow and where the wing player was for the best passing angle for a bounce pass if you are able to hit that player going at the rim then it's a good look.
If the backdoor is not there:
- The player who went backdoor should continue to the paint and then turn around heading back up halfway to the elbow.
- The weak side elbow will pop up and receive a pass from the original ball handler.
- The player who just made the pass will utilize a screen from the player on their elbow and then the player who made the backdoor cut also setting a screen in the mid-paint area creating a staggered screen.
- The player using the screens will curl around to the block where they can receive a pass from the top. This cut is highlighted in green.]
