In the Eastern Conference semi-finals, Miami has given the Toronto Raptors various problems in defending their small ball line-up. Toronto continues to struggle keeping their men in front (defending dribble penetration). Here is a set Miami uses to create a mismatch or create an advantage, ultimately getting drive and kick play.
2 (Dragic) sets pin-down for 4 (Johnson). 1 enters ball to 4.
On the air time of the pass, 1 spaces. On 4's catch, 2 immediately sprints to GG ball screen. As 4 turns the corner, 2 pops the 3pt line, 1 spaces to the corner, 3 back cuts (for spacing purposes).
