Many people running the Read & React offense seek new quick hitters to force certain looks for their team. 3 Short Strong provides multiple options for teams that have three very good players at the point, wing, and low post.
The set starts in a 3-Out 2-In set with the the post players located at the short corner. The point will initiate the offense and then exit their basket cut to the strong side of the court, thus the name “3 Short Strong”.
This play often gets a fairly open quick jump-shot for the point guard in the corner, or a quick feed into the post following the post player’s screen for the point cutting through.
