This set comes from last night's Rockets-Heat game. It is a pick-and-roll set out of a Horns look that takes advantage of Miami's trapping pick-and-roll defense. James Harden was swallowed up by this defensive scheme during the NBA Finals but he is very patient here, keeping his dribble alive at a slow pace to draw both Bosh and Wade for just long enough to open up space on the wing for Carlos Deflino, who is left up by Shane Battier because Battier is forced to help on the roll in Miami's scheme, to get a wide open shot.
2 cuts acrosss the free throw line and receives the ball from 1 at the right wing. 1 clears to the left wing and 3 clears to the left corner.
4 slips a pick and cuts to the right corner. 5 slips a pick and cuts down the middle of the lane.
2 dribbles off the pick as 5 slips.
The defense traps 2 with d2 and d5 while d4 helps on 5's roll. This leaves 4 open in the right corner for a catch and shoot three.
