Basketball Play - Chicago Bulls - EOG Post Kickout 3

Chicago Bulls - EOG Post Kickout 3

Matt Wheeler 07/20/2016

Down 3 with 3.6 seconds left in the NBA Summer League championship game, the Chicago Bulls ran this sideline out of bounds play to get Denzel Valentine a clean look at a 3. This play uses the skip pass action that Brad Stevens has used at both Butler and the Boston Celtics in end game situations. The Bulls ran their own variation of the play that started with a decoy cross screen for Valentine instead of the zipper screen that Stevens uses. This action caused the defense to relax, thinking Valentine was covered after defending the initial cross screen successfully. The rescreen for Valentine then freed him up for the game tying shot.

Basketball Play - Memphis Grizzlies - SLOB Iverson Side Elevator

Memphis Grizzlies - SLOB Iverson Side Elevator

Matt Wheeler 08/01/2016

The Memphis Grizzlies ran this down 4 with 20 seconds left in an NBA Summer League game. In this situation they would need 2 scores and they opted to go for the 3 coming out of a timeout. The multiple screening actions from 4 & 5 caused the defensive confusion and led to an open shot for 4. 4 & 5's defenders have to guard back to back screening actions, first with the Iverson cut made by 2 and then the elevator screen for 3. If 5 cut to the basket instead of drifting to the perimeter he might have gotten a layup or at least would have created more space for the shot from 4. See More

Basketball Play - Brazil - EOG SLOB 3 Box Double

Brazil - EOG SLOB 3 Box Double

Matt Wheeler 08/08/2016

Brazil was down 7 with 17.2 seconds left against Lithuania, trying to finish off a comeback that had them down by 25 in the second half. They used the familiar box setup for this SLOB play. Often times in this situation 2 will set a cross screen for 3. In this play 2's starting position was facing 3 as if he was going to screen for him. Once 1 was given the ball, 2 instead cut off of the double screen by 4 & 5. When he didn't get the ball, 2 continued to the corner. 3 then ran off of the second double screen. 3's defender was unable to get through the screen which forced a switch and eventually a foul on the 3 point shot.
