Today I have a sideline out of bounds play from Purdue coach Matt Painter. The play is designed to get your shooters open looks, however there are a couple of options in there where your big guys could end up getting the ball. For me personally sideline out of bounds and baseline out of bounds are two situations that I love to take advantage of. After all, when else do you have the opportunity to setup the exact play you want without worrying about pressure from the defense as you set it up?

To start the play you will start in a box set. The play is initiated by the 3 man screening down to get the ball into your 1.

After the inbound, the 2 guard will get a staggered screen from the 3 and the 5 man. This is the first option of the play, and your 2 should be your best shooter.

If the initial option isn’t open the 2 guard has a few different options. One option is to look inside to the 5 man. If there was a switch on the screen he may have a good matchup that you can take advantage of. Another option is the 3 coming off a double screen from the 4 and the 1. (Note: If the 2 wasn’t open initially on this play, the PG (1) could wait for the 3 to come off a screen from the 4.
Another option for your team is to look for the 4 slipping to the basket off the screen. I added that (it’s not in the video you’ll see below) option because we like slips in our offense. With all the movement on this sideline out of bounds play I think the slip has a good chance of being open here.
