The Dallas Mavericks used the same "curl" structure when trying to get a lob for Shawn Marion. Coaches simply run the player they want to lob off a downscreen, then have him curl back around towards the rim - and Rick Carlisle did this at the end of a preseason game. This particular of play is called "Zipper Go Back".
1 (Kidd) is the inbounder. Marion (3) starts up the lane line, zippering up towards Nowitzki (4). As soon as he leaves, Terry (2) comes off a flex screen from Mahinmi (5). Marion makes a simple curl around Nowitzki towards the rim for the alley oop.
