Basketball Play - Mavericks Dirk Iso

Mavericks Dirk Iso

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

NBA Play of the Day May 17: New York Knicks 15 Power

Kyle Gilreath 05/17/2013

In an attempt to get Amar'e Stoudamire going during his limited minutes, Mike Woodson had the New York Knicks ran this post-up action several times last night in their win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. Spreading the floor our the way the Knicks did made this action difficult to run and would be an excellent option if you have a dominant post player on your team. By using Jason Kidd to set the screen on Stoudemire, you make the defense make a decision to switch or help and recover. In my opinion, switching is not even an option. By helping and recovering, the defense arrives late and allows the post player to catch and make a move towards the rim quicker. See More

Here is another play that is run frequently by Greg McDermott at Creighton. This set play is unique because it is run from a 2-3 high set with 1 and 2 at top so that 2 can eventually receive the stagger screen later in the play (this can be done out of a 4-out 1-in set by having the trailing big exchange with the weak side guard). This is a great way for you to get your team opportunities for easy 2's or a 3 pointer from the top of the key. 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

Basketball Play - High Dive Special

High Dive Special

Randy Brown 05/15/2013

This play can yield a lay up or post up by 3 or a three point shot by 4. Starts with a double flare for 1 who catches on the left wing. On the catch, 4 screens for 3 diving to the basket. If 4's defender helps a little on 3's cut, 4 steps out behind the line to shoot a three. False action between 2 and 5 on the right wing will occupy the weak side defenders. Give it a try! See More

Basketball Play - Shuffle Slip

Shuffle Slip

John Leonzo 05/14/2013

Here is a set that was run often by the Wichita State Shockers throughout the past season. This quick hitter gives you the option of 1 attacking off the ball screen, 4 cutting to the basket, 3 for a jumper, or 5 posting up on the block. This play is effective for getting a post up because of the misdirection that takes place off the ball screen. As 1 attacks off the ball screen and 4 cuts hard of the back screen from 5, the defense will anticipate the play coming to the strong side. As 3 pops and 5 slips to post up, the ball can be thrown back to 3 and 5 can effectively post up for a quality look at the basket. See More

John Leonzo 05/14/2013

Here is a play that is a staple in Greg McDermott's offense at Creighton. This is a set that they go to when they are being pressured heavily by the defense. This set is effective because the ball is constantly changing sides of the floor, which in turn moves the defense into positions where they are vulnerable. This is a great set if you want to get the ball into the post and play inside out. See More

Single/Double

Randy Brown 05/14/2013

This play is a good scoring option for your best scorer, 2. 1 dribbles out to the wing to push 2 to the middle of the lane. 3 fills and receives reversal pass from 1. 2 has a choice of cutting out the single or double side to catch and score. Post Option - if 2 comes out the single side, 5 posts on right side. 4 can cut to high post to eliminate weak side help. Give it a try! See More

13 Power

Kyle Gilreath 05/13/2013

The Atlanta Hawks ran this play versus the Indiana Pacers in Round 1 of the 2013 NBA Playoffs. The Hawks like to utilize Josh Smith in the post and this is just one action to get him on the block. But like every great NBA coach, Atlanta has a counter in the event the defense deny's the action. In this case, 5 went into a dribble hand-off to get the ball back to 1. Additional ending after the DHO is for 5 to pin-down for 3. See More

Basketball Play - Miami Heat Post Iso for Lebron James

Miami Heat Post Iso for Lebron James

Kyle Gilreath 05/11/2013

The Miami Heat ran this set Wednesday night in Game 2 and they also ran it this evening in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals versus the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls being one of the most defensive minded teams in the league, I was surprised they got caught on this same play a second time. As the defense quickly showed on the 3->4 screen, Lebron does a very good job with his footwork creating position on the block for an easy angle to post-up. 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.

NBA Best Play of the Night May 8: Chicago Bulls - UCLA Power

Kyle Gilreath 05/08/2013

The Chicago Bulls ran this simple post-up play to get Carlos Boozer two points on the block in Game 1 versus the Miami Heat. This is a play that the Bulls run almost religiously every night and have several different ways to get into it. Here another way they ran this play a few weeks ago that ended in a pick & roll. Because Boozer is such a force inside due to his size and strength this is a very difficult action to guard. If X1 switches with X5 its more than likely an immediate score and if X1 holds until X5 recovers 1 will be open for a shot popping out. See More
