The New Orleans Pelicans ran this play several nights ago to get Anthony Davis (5) screened into a spread pick & roll. Most NBA teams run this action with a single (or sometimes double as pictured) weakside pin-down for a catch & shoot at the elbow/slot area. I really like how the Pelicans turned this action into a screen the screener for Davis. The staggers, along with spacing Ryan Anderson (3) wide, caused the coverage on the pick & roll to be late and eliminating any help defenders in the paint for a easy pick & roll dunk.
2 zippered off a screen from 3 and 1 passed to 2. 1 cut under the ball to set a stagger with 4 for 5. 5 sprinted into a middle pick & roll with 2. As 2 came off he threw back to 5 for a open dunk.
