About This Play/Drill

This is based on a lob play the Miami Heat run for Dwyane Wade. We added onto it when teams started taking away the lob late in the season. The secondary actions are excellent in late-game situations. It's critical that you teach 3 to cut hard off the initial screen, as most teams will deny the inbound to him and set up the back screen nicely.

  • 1) 5 sets a zipper screen for 3 cutting up the ball-side lane line. 2 runs along the baseline to the ball-side corner.

    2) 3 loops back off a back screen from 4. 1 hits 3 with the lob.

  • 3) If the lob isn't open, 4 steps out and receives the inbound pass from 1.

    4) 1 follows his pass while 2 and 5 set a staggered screen for 3. 4 has the option to hit 3 coming off the screens OR hand off to 1, who looks to attack off the dribble.
