Basketball Play - SLOB Lob for Spurs

SLOB Lob for Spurs

Mo Dakhil 07/13/2016

The San Antonio Spurs summer league team ran an End of Game (EOG) play to beat the Warriors at the buzzer with a lob to Jonathan Simmons. The play showed how teams could take advantage of defenses that hard hedge (when the screener’s defender steps in the path of player coming off the screen) or switch off ball screens. Kyle Anderson is tasked with inbounding the ball, in the stronger side corner is the Spurs best shooter in DeJounte Murray. His job is not to move from that spot and keep the floor spread. Bryn Forbes is in the weakside corner and it appears as if CJ Williams and Simmons are setting a double staggered for Forbes. As Forbes comes off the first screen, Simmons’ defender jumps out early to hedge on the screen and make it a difficult entry pass to Forbes. As soon as the defender hedges Simmons slips right to the basket without ever setting the screen. Anderson throws the lob but it is a little off target but Simmons uses his athleticism to catch the ball, gather himself and goes straight up to score over the defense. Even if the defense switched in this situation Simmons would have the superior position as he has a direct lane to the basket and there would be no one in between him and the ball. The play above is a great example of a team slipping a screen to take advantage of teams See More

Miami Heat ATO SLOB Pin DBL High Counter Slip

David Taylor 05/15/2016

In the Eastern Conference semi-finals, Miami has given the Toronto Raptors various problems in defending their small ball line-up. Toronto continues to struggle keeping their men in front (defending dribble penetration). Here is an ATO Miami uses to create dribble penetration. Ultimately using slip as counter - using this action throughout the series... Wade rejects high ball from Winslow. See More

Basketball Play - Charlotte Hornets - SLOB Fade Handoff Rescreen

Charlotte Hornets - SLOB Fade Handoff Rescreen

Greg Youncofski 04/19/2016

Another well designed SLOB from the Hornets. This play is effective because it has many options that the defense has to worry about. By having Jefferson catch the ball outside the three-point line, Batum has plenty of room to take the handoff and go all the way to the rim. By having so much action going on, no defender is just standing around waiting to help – everyone has to worry about their man. See More

Basketball Play - Charlotte Hornets - SLOB Double Ballscreen Stagger

Charlotte Hornets - SLOB Double Ballscreen Stagger

Greg Youncofski 04/19/2016

One of the Hornets favorite sets in the half court can be just as effective as a SLOB. The Hornets set it up by making Batum’s defender fight through false action zipper screens, and then come right back and make him fight through stagger screens. Batum scores here but the play has many options. Your point guard can take it to the rim right away off the ballscreens. If you have a big man who can shoot, have him pop after the stagger screen because if his man switches or overhelps, he could be wide open for a three-pointer. See More

Basketball Play - Oklahoma City Thunder - SLOB Double Ballscreen Fade

Oklahoma City Thunder - SLOB Double Ballscreen Fade

Greg Youncofski 04/19/2016

A very well designed late game SLOB play by the Thunder. For coaches looking to run this set, I believe it is important to make sure your best ball-handler/playmaker is coming off the double ballscreen, as this will make the man guarding the second screener to show/hedge out because he has to respect the ball-handler on the drive/shot and this rotation could make him late getting back to his own man. This is also effective if the defense is switching, because now the man coming off the fade screen has a mismatch. The Thunder do a great job here clearing out the side so that if Durant does not have a shot, he has plenty of room to take his man. See More
