Monty Williams uses this play to get Ryan Anderson, a stretch 4, a three point opportunity coming off an elevator screen. They fake posting Anderson on the block and then dart him up through an elevator/ off a double screen to hit the open trey.
Ryan Anderson (4) is in the corner. 1 initiates a perimeter swing
4 and 2 engage in a flex and re-flex action, resulting in 2 popping to the opposite corner. As this happens, 5 and 1 both sink in towards the elbows.
Elevator action for Anderson
If no shot ensues the Hornets are then able to play in a 4-out-1-in offense. Usually Anderson will swing the ball to Vasquez (1) and set a side ball screen, clearing out that side of the floor for a potential throwback.
