Basketball Play - Memphis Grizzlies - Shuffle Flare Rip DHO

Memphis Grizzlies - Shuffle Flare Rip DHO

Ryan Nguyen 11/13/2018

This is one of the options that the Memphis Grizzlies run out of their "Shuffle" series. The play starts with the PG making the hit-ahead pass then cuts through to the opposite side of the floor. 5 then flashes to the strong side elbow to set a shuffle screen after the pass to the corner. If the initial cut off the shuffle screen isn't available for a score, 4 sets a flare for 2 on the weak side then 3 sets a rip screen for 4 (STS action). Immediately after the rip screen, 3 sprints into a DHO with 5 and stops behind for a shot if defense goes under. On the FMS Blog: Gap Creating Cuts to Enhance Your Offense See More

Basketball Play - Finland - Diamond 2

Finland - Diamond 2

Ryan Nguyen 09/18/2018

This is one of the many "Diamond" sets from Henrik Dettmann of the Finnish National Team. 2, a shooter, sets the back screen for 4. As x2 helps on the back screen, 5 dribbles out of the post into a handoff for 2. Because x2 bumps 4 on his cut, he is trailing behind 2 out of position to contest. See More

Basketball Play - Finland - Diamond 53

Finland - Diamond 53

Ryan Nguyen 09/18/2018

This is one of the many "Diamond" sets from Henrik Dettmann of the Finnish National Team. As 4 slips the ball screen, this creates an advantage for the offense as x5 has to help on the slip. As x5 helps, 5 sets a pindown for 3. Because x5 is helping on the slip from 4, the offense creates a 2-on-1 advantage on the weak side since there is no help on 3 as he comes off the screen.

Basketball Play - Croatia - Horns Double Stagger/DHO Option

Croatia - Horns Double Stagger/DHO Option

Ryan Nguyen 09/15/2018

Croatia ran this Horns (call is "4") set against Lithuania in the first window of the second round of the FIBA European Qualifiers. Set starts off with a little misdirection with 5 screening for 4. Then 4 and 5 then set a stagger for 3. They then set another stagger along the baseline for 2 who comes off the screen looking for a shot. If 2 isn't open, 4 flashes to the elbow for a pass. After the elbow entry, they run a 3 man action looking to create a single tag off the pindown into DHO. See More

Basketball Play - Atlanta Hawks - Loop Oklahoma

Atlanta Hawks - Loop Oklahoma

Ryan Nguyen 08/24/2018

Budenholzer ran this "Loop" set last year with the Atlanta Hawks to create an open 3 for a stretch big. The action starts off with a pin down into a loop cut across the elbow by the PG/1. As 1 completes cut, 5 immediately turns and sets a ball screen for 2. 5 then rolls into a pin down for 4 who comes off the screen looking for a shot. Offense creates a 3-on-2 advantage on the weak side as the ball handler occupies the screener's defender. See More

Basketball Play - LA Lakers - ICE Defense 3-on-3 Drill

LA Lakers - ICE Defense 3-on-3 Drill

Ryan Nguyen 08/18/2018

Continuity defensive drill from Luke Walton and the Los Angeles Lakers from their 2016 Training Camp. This drill works on side pick and roll defense where the defense looks to Ice/Blue/Push/Down, depending on your terminology. The on ball defender adjusts their stance to be on the top of hip of the ball handler. Goal is to prevent the ball handler from using the ball screen to get to the middle, keeping the ball on the sideline/baseline on the pass and follow action. On the throwback to the screener, the on ball defender works for a lock and trail. See video below diagram for more. See More

Miami Heat - EOG SLOB

Ryan Nguyen 01/19/2018

Erik Spoelstra ran this EOG SLOB set in consecutive games versus the Utah Jazz and Toronto Raptors. Set is designed to use Wayne Ellington's gravity to pull two defenders onto him when comes off the flare screen from Kelly Olynyk to the strong side corner. Olynyk then sets a down screen for Richardson where he looks to attack on the catch after the inbound pass. See More

Ryan Nguyen 01/19/2018

Hammer set ran by the Phoenix Suns. 2 and 5 set a double step up ball screen for 1. 2 and 3 cross high at the top. 1 attacks baseline and finds 2 drifting to the corner out of the hammer screen set by 4, who relocates to the 3-point line (free-throw line extended) after screening. See More

Basketball Play - Philadelphia 76ers - ATO "Ear Tug"

Philadelphia 76ers - ATO "Ear Tug"

Ryan Nguyen 12/18/2017

The Philadelphia 76ers like to run this "logo" ball screen action for Ben Simmons to prevent defenses from going under. If Simmons is open on the UCLA cut, they'll look to hit for a quick layup. If the layup is not available, 5 will set a flare screen for 2, creating a post split action to prevent defense from digging. See More
