Flex Cut Inbound Play

Simple Baseline Out of Bounds Inbound Play for a Man Defense utilizing a Flex cut.

  1. The baseline out of bounds inbound play starts in a box set.
  2. The 4 pops to the corner and receives a pass from the inbounder (1) who then steps into the block  The five clears to the weak side corner.
  3. In the animation, the 4 reverses to the 2 who is stationary on the elbow.  I imagine the 2 will have to pop towards the wing in real life to get open.
  4. The ball is then reversed to the 3 setting up the flex cut action with the 4 cutting to the strong side block off the 1’s flex screen.

Obviously, the answer is both but realistically if you have 70 possessions in a game, for instance, you’ll never score...
