Basketball Play - Slip/Fade for a 3

Slip/Fade for a 3

Jeff Dow 02/28/2014

The Portland Trailblazers ran this set vs. the Denver Nuggets on January 23, 2014. Wesley Matthews (2) runs at Damian Lilliard's defender (X1) as if to set an on/ball screen. Just before getting to X1 he quickly slipped the screen and faded to the 3-point arc. Both Nugget defenders stayed with Lilliard making for an easy 3-point attempt for Matthews with no other defenders available to rotate to contest the shot. This set takes advantage of the fact that most teams will switch guard-to-guard on/ball screens and the Nuggets got caught anticipating there would be an on/ball screen set. See More

Lilliard/Lopez Pick and Roll

Jeff Dow 02/18/2014

The Portland Trailblazers ran this set off the opening tip in their game vs. the Indiana Pacers on February 7, 2014. It takes advantage of Damian Lilliard's ability to execute coming off of an on/ball screen as well Robin Lopez's knack for finishing at the rim. Depending on how the play is defended it also includes options for a Wesley Matthew's corner 3 or a pass back to LaMarcus Aldrige for a face-up jumber from just inside the arc. See More

Duke ran this set vs. Pitt in their game on January 27, 2014. It requires a 4 that can shoot 3's and a 5 capable of finishing on the move after slipping an on/ball. This can be effective vs. teams that tend to hedge or trap on/balls. See More

Basketball Play - Trailblazers Post-Up

Trailblazers Post-Up

Jeff Dow 02/13/2014

The Portland Trailblazers ran this set in their overtime loss to the Indiana Pacers on February 7, 2014. The Blazers were looking to get Wesley Matthews posted up on a smaller defender (George Hill). The second option is to bring Damian Lilliard off of a staggered double for a possible 3-pointer. The staggered double also serves a secondary purpose in that it occupies all three of their defenders making it difficult for them to help on Matthews posting up. See More
