5 Out Dribble Drive
-Why would a team want to play a 5 out dribble drive?
1. If you feel your post player is quicker than the other teams post player.
2. They are packing in the defense and you need to get movement while spacing the floor to draw defenders away from the basket. You can think of this as a false motion. After some movement the defense will eventually start to expand and gamble for steals. Most teams aren’t disciplined enough to play solid defense for 20 to 30 seconds.
3. You want to put 5 shooters on the floor to keep the other team spaced on defense.
4. This makes the other team change to what you are doing and puts pressure on them.
5. The defense may like to over play and you want to create larger windows for players cutting backdoor.
2 and 3 are our best shooters so we start them in the corner. After a few drives from the top 2 and 3 will have better shots kicking up because the defense has had to rotate a few times.
1 is at the top of the key and 4 and 5 are free throw line extended. All dribble drive principles remain the same (kick up, kick back, kick out, and back doors).
To create larger driving gaps have players shallow cut towards the ball when they pass.
Eventually You may want to get back into you 4 around 1 dribble drive. If so here are some ways to do it:
1. When 5 has the ball he can go into a dribble hand off and roll to the rim.
2. The 5 man can pass to a perimeter player and sprint into a pick and roll.
3. The 5 man can go backdoor and look to seal and post.
