Basketball Play - Minnesota Timberwolves - 51 Back Cut SLOB

Minnesota Timberwolves - 51 Back Cut SLOB

Matt Barnthouse 08/01/2019

This is a great play for teams with bigs that can pass and guards that can finish around the rim. There are two ways to go on this play. The initial off ball elevator screen from the 5 to the 1 opens up a potential direct three-point opportunity. However, on this play, Derrick Rose (1) recognizes the open space and makes a back cut straight to the rim. The inbounder Wiggins (3) passes to Karl-Anthony Towns (5), who immediately throws a boune pass to Derrick Rose (1) who already has momentum towards rim. Now, on this specific play Rose is met at the rim by a help defender because the 4 is Taj Gibson, who cannot shoot the three, and can be easily left in the corner. If you are lucky enough to have a 4 that can shoot, then this is an even higher percentage shot, as the help defense will stay with the shooter. If not, there's an opportunity for a kickout corner three. The defense can't do both. Spacing opens up so much opportunity for an offense! Despite the help defense, Rose has the momentum to make a quick move and score the layup. Having players that know how to keep their momentum when cutting towards a pass can be deadly!

San Antonio Spurs - Backdoor SLOB

Tony Miller 06/25/2019

Key points: guard (1) to big (5) screen helps ensure you can get the ball in to 5. Having shooters on the floor at the 1, 2, and 4 positions keeps the lane open for the 3 on the back cut. 5 needs to be a good passer. 3 must set up his man by cutting hard at 5 before back cutting.

Las Vegas Aces - Triangle Rip Flash Flare EOG SLOB

Aseem Rastogi 06/01/2019

The Aces ran this SLOB as they were clawing back in a tense game with the Phoenix Mercury. The most dangerous person in this situation is the inbounder, Kayla McBride. Well timed and executed screening creates an opportunity for her to get to the rim and finish.

Milwaukee Bucks - EOG X SLOB

Matt Wheeler 05/22/2019

Milwaukee ran this play down 2 with 7.1 seconds left in Game 3 against the Toronto Raptors. The Bucks got the ball to Khris Middleton (2) cutting to the corner off of 5 for the first option. The defense closed hard to take away the three-point shot allowing Middleton to get to the basket for a layup. This play also has a secondary option with 3 cutting off the screen from 5, getting the ball on the run to attack the basket. Playbook Download: Late Game Situations See More

Las Vegas Aces - Middle Ball Screen Hi-Lo SLOB

Aseem Rastogi 05/06/2019

The Aces use this SLOB to get the ball to the pinch post area quickly as well as to bridge into their main sets on offense. The space created by the BLOB allows star player A'Ja Wilson to face up and get to the rim. Other options are to make a high-low pass, or hit a slasher come off a triple stagger screen along the baseline.

Houston Rockets - Stagger Slip SLOB

Matt Wheeler 04/29/2019

The Houston Rockets were down 5 with 24.4 seconds left in game 1 against the Golden State Warriors. They needed at least two scores to tie the game so they needed to get a quick basket and then foul to extend the game. This play worked very well against the Warriors strategy of switching all screens. James Harden (2) started the play as a decoy, setting the second screen for Eric Gordon (3). The Warriors switched off of Harden on the screen to take away an open three from Gordon. Harden then flashed to the ball to receive the pass from 5 and quickly attack the basket.
