Basketball Play - NBA Play of the Day May 24: San Antonio Spurs Hook Out

NBA Play of the Day May 24: San Antonio Spurs Hook Out

Kyle Gilreath 05/22/2013

Last night in their exciting Game 2 matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, the San Antonio Spurs ran this pick & pop action to open up the floor with several options to score. As I have preached quite a bit recently, I love screening bigs into pick & rolls. What makes this play so special is that it allowed Duncan to pop to the elbow for one of his go-to shots. Additionally, the Spurs screened in for hot shooting Danny Green for a possible look from the deep corner. Not only did this screen for Green give them another scoring option, but it took some of the help out of the paint in the even Parker turned the corner to get to the rim. See More

On ball entry, 1 cuts to the lane to screen for 3. 3 uses screen to score possible catch in lane then continues to right short corner. 4 pops out to catch ball reversal from 2. Screen the screener action as 5 screens for 1. On 1's catch, 5 steps out of the lane to screen for 3 who cuts into the paint to catch and score. Give it a try! See More

This play offers three good looks to score. First option is 1 using the on ball screen to penetrate into the paint to scroe. Two, 3 gets open with screens from 2 and 5. On 3's catch, 5 continues across the lane to screen for 2 for quick shot. Additional action can be designed if 1 reverses to 4. Give it a try! See More

Jacob Collins 05/19/2013

This is the last counter in a series that the Dallas Mavericks used against the Miami Heat in their title run in 2011. Rick Carlisle does an excellent job of recognizing the strengths of the players that he has on the floor and taking advantage of those strengths. In this play sequence Jason Kidd is the (1), JET Jason Terry is the (2), Shawn Marion is the (3), Dirk is the (4), and Tyson Chandler is the (5). This set is a great example of getting your best scorers. Dirk (4) and Jason Terry (2) in position to do some damage. See More

Basketball Play - Duck and Pop

Duck and Pop

Randy Brown 05/15/2013

Cutting action sets up a curl and pop option for 3 and 5 respectively. 1 and 3 cut initially to set up ball reversal. On reversal from 2-4-1, 3 curls using 5's screen, followed by a screen down by 2 to free 5. This play is perfect for a scoring 3 man and a 5 that can shoot the perimeter jump shot. Both options will be present. Give it a try! See More

NBA Play of the Nigh May 15: Golden State Warriors Elbow Flex

Kyle Gilreath 05/15/2013

I am sure I have posted this play in the past but it is one of my favorites so I wanted to post it again! The Golden State Warriors went to this action in the 1st Half of Game 4 versus the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Semi-Finals. This elbow set into a flex action is very popular in the NBA; Stan Van Gundy ran it religiously in Orlando. While us coaches are all very familiar with the Flex, I have learned recently that many young players today are not familiar with how to run the play NOR guard it. In my opinion, if you have two great scorers on the floor, this is a very difficult action to guard. The defense has to respect the flex cut give up a lay-up. Then by pinning down on the screener, the defense must make a decision how to guard and if they over-react the big will be open slipping to the rim. See More

Isolate your best shooter or driver with this screen the screener action. This is an interesting play because a lot of times the stagger comes on the weak side. This time the stagger is on the strong side, leaving a side of the floor isolated for a drive. This play can be run either to the right or the left. Make sure to practice the footwork of how you want your player to turn after the catch. See More

The New York Knicks ran this play in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals versus the Indiana Pacers. Some coaches are not big fans of running guard on guard ballscreens because they are easy to switch. But by screening Kidd into the pick it forces the defense to make one of two decisions: 1. Switch and the defense ends up with a big helping on the pick & pop. 2. If the defense doesn't switch the guard is late to help on the pick & pop and could result in JR Smith pulling up for a jumper. Furthermore, the Knicks put Carmelo Anthony (4) spaced in the opposite corner. This is an excellent strategy as well because his defense is probably told not to help off too much of their leading scorer. See More

NBA Best Play of the Night May 9: Oklahoma City Thunder: UCLA Set

Daniel Murphy 05/09/2013

OKC ran this set midway through the third quarter of game 2. At this point Durant had only taken 9 shots. He had the ball in his hands a lot and was facilitating for his teamates. This was a great set to get him a touch with the ball out of his hands. After he hit this shot he got it rolling to finish out the quarter. The UCLA Ball Screen-Stagger is a common set with a lot of options, many of which are posted on FastModel. Reversing the ball back to a shooter coming off a pin down is a great option. See More

BONUS NBA Play of the Day May 9: Miami Heat Power

Kyle Gilreath 05/09/2013

Last night in an impressive win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals, the Miami Heat ran this play to get Lebron james a post up action. What made this play so effective is Ray Allen set the initial back screen on Lebron. Having the best shooter in NBA history set a screen really puts the defense in a bind because if you over-help the defense ends up late on the pin-down and more than likely give up an open 3-pointer.
