Basketball Play - Cleveland Cavs - Pindown Horns Spread

Cleveland Cavs - Pindown Horns Spread

Matt Wheeler 05/08/2017

The Cleveland Cavs ran this inverted variation of the Horns set early in game 4 against the Toronto Raptors. Normally in a Horns set 5 & 4 set the ball screen up top with 2 & 3 in the corners. In this lineup the Cavs have 4 shooters spaced around LeBron James (3) so it was easy for the guards and posts to switch roles and still keep everyone spaced on the perimeter. 5 & 4 set pindown screens for 1 & 2 then cut to the corners. 3 turns the corner on the ball screen to look for a shot or any of his teammates spaced around the 3 point line.

Basketball Play - Spurs - "Triangle STS Hammer"

Spurs - "Triangle STS Hammer"

Doug Brotherton 05/04/2017

In Game 2 of the Spurs-Rockets series, in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, Popovich ran this ATO set. It is a terrific design, based on the fact that the Spurs love to isolate Kawhi Leonard (3). On the screen-the-screener action, it looks like an isolation, but is actually a "Hammer Action." This is a screen, to set up the baseline drift pass. It resulted in a wide open 3 for Danny Green, as the Spurs opened up a 10-point halftime lead in Game 2. Look for more isolation sets, and "Hammer Actions" from the Spurs, throughout the Playoffs.

Basketball Play - Los Angeles Clippers - ATO Decoy Hammer Comeback

Los Angeles Clippers - ATO Decoy Hammer Comeback

Ryan Nguyen 04/26/2017

With the LA Clippers trailing 88-83 with 1:14 in the 4th quarter, they ran this ATO/EOG SLOB "Decoy Hammer" action against the Utah Jazz in Game 5. 2 (JJ Redick) sets a flare screen for 3 (Austin Rivers). This is decoy action as the defense has to make a decision whether to switch or not. In this case, the Jazz decide not to switch and this slight indecisveness (they switched on the 1/3 fake ball-screen action which might have caused some confusion) gave Redick space to run into a shot off of the comeback screen for 5.

Basketball Play - Elbow Triple

Elbow Triple

Doug Brotherton 04/24/2017

When building your playbook for next season, we want to give you some things to consider. For example, do your sets have anything that make them easy to scout? Do they all start from different formations? Is it difficult to flow from the base offense, into the sets? Do they all use the same action? Do the sets lack versatility? These are all challenges, which coaches must consider, and do not realize until they face the best teams on their schedule. The "Elbow Series" below is an example of some sets that check all of the necessary boxes, which make them a solid addition to your playbook. Read More: http://bit.ly/2pbH6L1 See More

Basketball Play - Spurs - "Fake Hammer Snap" (SLOB)

Spurs - "Fake Hammer Snap" (SLOB)

Doug Brotherton 04/23/2017

The Spurs trailed the Grizzlies by 3, with 22 seconds left, and had the ball on the sideline. Popovich and the Spurs are known for their "Hammer Action," which is a baseline drift play. After a zipper screen to get the ball inbounds, the Spurs designed a "Hammer Action." Behind Kawhi Leonard's drive, they set a down screen for Patty Mills. The misdirection put the Grizzlies into a defensive scramble. On the pass to Mills, Kawhi's defender left to help. Kawhi spaced to the corner, where Mills made the extra pass. This resulted in a wide open 3 for Kawhi Leonard, which tied the game. In the tough scenario of needing a 3, late in the game, the Spurs got the rare uncontested look. A great design, with tremendous execution. Despite Marc Gasol's game winning shot, handing the Spurs a loss, this was the obvious "Xs and Os Play of the Game!" See More
