Pitch Mix Angle from the Fred Hoiberg Pitch Series. Diagrams and Videos below!
1 delivers the dribble pitch to 4
4 may look to attack downhill
4 stretches with one or two dribbles then passes back to 1
(MIX = misdirection. 4 dribbles one way and throws back the other passing against the grain of the defense's movement)
5 begins to rise
If 4 is able to MIX to 1, 5 rises into the angle ball screen.
If 4 is unable to MIX to 1 enter to 5 at elbow and get into the handoff off the elbow
NOTE: 3 has option to clear out to the other side or hold the corner (shown)
If 4 is unable to MIX to 1 or enter to 5 at elbow, 5 may back screen for a lob opportunity
5 separates from back screen, receives pass from 4 then looks to the 3 side.
Here 5 passes to 3...
...then 5 follows into wing ball screen
5 may also continue into DHO with 3
