The Chicago Bulls ran this simple post-up play to get Carlos Boozer two points on the block in Game 1 versus the Miami Heat. This is a play that the Bulls run almost religiously every night and have several different ways to get into it. Here another way they ran this play a few weeks ago that ended in a pick & roll. Because Boozer is such a force inside due to his size and strength this is a very difficult action to guard. If X1 switches with X5 its more than likely an immediate score and if X1 holds until X5 recovers 1 will be open for a shot popping out.
1 (Teague) passed to 2 (Butler). 1 UCLA cut off a screen from 5 (Boozer). 1 then turned and set a backscreen for 5 to post-up. On the catch 4 (Noah) stayed outside the paint to prevent his man from helping easily on the iso.
