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.
Damian Lilliard (1) executes a dribble hand-off with Wesley Matthews (2). Lilliard continues his cut to the left corner.
Robin Lopez (5) pops open at the top of the key to recieve the pass from Matthews. Lopez then swings it to Nic Batum (3) at the right wing. As the ball is being swung Matthews is making a shuffle cut off of a LaMarcus Aldridge (4) screen. Batum looks to hit Matthews off of the cut or on a post-up.
The second option is for Alridge and Lopez to set a staggered double for one of the top 3-point shooters in the NBA, Lilliard. This will also occupy X1, X4, and X5 to make it difficult for them to help on the post-up for Matthews.
