Basketball Play of the Week
"Tornado" Vs. Man
Space the court so that the middle is clear. 1 and 2 should be good ball handlers. 3 should be a good slasher. 1 dribbles toward 2's side.
5 pops to the corner. 4 upscreens for 3. 3 comes off 4's screen and slashes to the lane. 2 V-cuts sharly and pops out to receive the pass from 1. 2 can shoot, penetrate or look to 3 cutting to the basket.
After you run this play a few times, the defense will make adjustments. 4 upscreens for 3 who breaks toward the lane but this time 3 runs all the way through to the baseline and to the opposite corner to set a screen for 5. 5 comes off 4's screen and breaks toward the basket or can pop up toward the elbow to look for a pass. 1 passes to 5 or 2.
