About This Play/Drill

Las Vegas runs a beautiful Horns set which allows plenty of options for their dynamic scorers to get the ball where they want it the most. Early in the season, Vegas ran this and utilized the Flex action well. As teams started scouting, they went to the secondary action which is to reject the initial Flex screen from the cutting passer, and instead use the double stagger.

  • Option 1:


    1 enters the ball to 5 and immediately cuts through to screen opposite corner on the flex screen.


    4 sets a pindown for 1 to use after screening in the flex action.


    5 can hit 2 coming across or 1 off the pindown.

  • Option 2: Counter


    Initial action is the exact same with the entry and the cut by 1 to screen. Instead of 2 taking the screen and going across the lane, 1 changes the angle of the screen slightly and 4 sets the second in the double staggered for 2 to receive the ball.
