This play was run by the New Orleans Pelicans on their opening night against the Indiana Pacers. Zip 54 Rub is designed to get Anthony Davis an open wing jumper, using his athleticism and comfort on the perimeter to throw off his post defender. Most post defenders aren't used to going over handoffs or screens, and this pattern that Davis runs forces them to do so.
Horns set to start. 2 zippers off 4, and 1 hits 4 on the elbow instead of passing to 2.
5 flares for 2, who fills opposite corner if there's no open shot for him. 5 then rubs off 4, sets a pin down for 1, who walks his man down. 1 rubs off 4 as well, though 5 pops for the shot.
