The Los Angeles Lakers opened their 2021 preseason with this quick hitting play to get Russell Westbrook attacking the rim off the PNR. This play involves their top three players in Westbrook (1), Lebron James (3), and Anthony Davis (4). After 3 dribble handoffs with 1, 1 immediately passes to 4 up top. This initates the false action by 3, 5 and 2 as they cut for spacing to prepare for the ball screen with 1 and 4. Video clip below.
