Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - Elbow (Corner Offense)

Toronto Raptors - Elbow (Corner Offense)

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

With the addition of Marc Gasol's playmaking ability, Nick Nurse has reintroduced the "Elbow" series into the Toronto Raptors playbook in the 2018-19 season. Popularized by Rick Adelman as the Corner Offense, this set allows the Raptors to utilize their versatile personnel, such as Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry, in inteerchangeable roles as passers, cutters, and pick and roll ball handlers. Often times ran at the end of games, this set allows Nick Nurse to involve all of high star players at once. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - "3" BLOB

Toronto Raptors - "3" BLOB

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

Throughout Kyle Lowry's tenure with the Toronto Raptors, this baseline out of bounds play has been used as a set-action to get him a 3-pointer in rhythm going to his preferred left. During a mid-seasoon slump in 2018-19, Nick Nurse dialled up "3" BLOB several times over the course of a few games to great success. After toggling from the inbounder and continuing into the continuous staggered screens, Lowry eventually will shoot a catch-and-shoot jumper. See More

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

During a mid-season slump for Kyle Lowry, Nick Nurse introduced this San Antonio Spurs classic into the Raptors playbook. The former Tony Parker pet play involves sending a guard around a series of baseline screens to carry their momentum into an advantage on the catch. During the 2018-19 season, Toronto opened up a couple of games looking to get Lowry going and did so by running this play. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - 52 Pinch Hammer

Toronto Raptors - 52 Pinch Hammer

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

Hammer plays are commonplace across the NBA, and Nick Nurse has several different pet plays that utilize this action. Typically run in after timeout scenarios for their best catch-and-shoot players, this play and formation is out of the “Triangle” and the Toronto Raptors' spacing reflects that. With a big on each elbow, the weak side of the floor forming a triangle with a guard in the deep corner and the other near the hashmark, as well as the ball handler initiating the play from the slot extended.

Toronto Raptors - Motion Weak + DHO Counter

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

This play, a staple of the San Antonio Spurs offense for years, has become a pet-play of Nick Nurse’s to start the game or half. Put into the Raptors playbook in the middle of the season, this play is used for Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, and Marc Gasol to get a post touch. The first option is for a post-up to score, but the second option/counter involves a kickout pass to leverage aggressive off-ball defense against itself. See More

Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Runner

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Runner

Matt Wheeler 04/08/2019

Texas Tech runs this play to get the ball to their star player Jarrett Culver (3). The Red Raiders will run him off of baseline screens to get him open for a shot on either side of the floor. If he can't get open on the baseline 3 will cut up top for the pass. They will then go back to their motion principles with 4 & 5 will setting flare screens for the guards. 3 can read the play and make the pass to either cutter or screener. If the ball goes to 4 or 5 they will then go into a side pick and roll. Blog Post: Texas Tech Defense Puts Opponents on Red Alert See More
