Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - 4 Flip

Toronto Raptors - 4 Flip

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

During Pascal Siakam's breakout season in 2018-19 as the Most Improved Player, Nick Nurse has dedicated several set-plays to leverage Siakam's unique skill set. With the Point Guard dribbling on the right wing and crossing into the middle of the floor, "4 Flip" is a pet play for Pascal Siakam to leverage his strong driving ability going to his right when the ball is flipped to him as he cross half court.

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - Swirl

Toronto Raptors - Swirl

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

The play, which can be initiated from SLOB (Sideline out of Bounds) scenarios or a normal half-court possession, is a set that involves a lot of player and ball movement around a post up. Nick Nurse has utilized it quite often to leverage the playmaking abilities of his players that feel comfortable making plays out of the post. Specifically, Marc Gasol and Pascal Siakam are usually the main decision makers as the remaining off-ball Raptors screen and cut for one another ot occupy the defense's attention. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - "C" BLOB

Toronto Raptors - "C" BLOB

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

During Nick Nurse's first year as the Toronto Raptors head coach, he entirely revamped its out-of-bounds playbook. A perfect encapsulation of that is one of the Raptors' most used baseline out of bounds sets - "C" BLOB. This mover-blocker-esque action does not have any superfluous movement and each motion has a subsequent option and read that follows. See More

Toronto Raptors - Zipper Loop

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

During a mid-season slump for Kyle Lowry, Nick Nurse introduced this San Antonio Spurs classic into the Raptors playbook. The former Tony Parker pet play involves sending a guard around a series of baseline screens to carry their momentum into an advantage on the catch. During the 2018-19 season, Toronto opened up a couple of games looking to get Lowry going and did so by running this play. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - 52 Pinch Hammer

Toronto Raptors - 52 Pinch Hammer

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

Hammer plays are commonplace across the NBA, and Nick Nurse has several different pet plays that utilize this action. Typically run in after timeout scenarios for their best catch-and-shoot players, this play and formation is out of the “Triangle” and the Toronto Raptors' spacing reflects that. With a big on each elbow, the weak side of the floor forming a triangle with a guard in the deep corner and the other near the hashmark, as well as the ball handler initiating the play from the slot extended.

Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Step Up

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Step Up

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is another preview of an action that is beautiful that occurred organically in the Texas Tech motion offense. Of all the actions we prepare our team to guard, we don't guard post up defense to pin down into a double step-up ball screen very well. This action puts great pressure on the rim because of both the athletic ability of Tariq Owens and the vision and beautiful pass by Matt Mooney.

Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Kitchen Sink

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Sample: Kitchen Sink

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a sample of the Texas Tech true motion offense. This is not a set play but a picture of the sequences of actions you will have to guard when facing them. In one possession you have to guard: a drag screen, flare screen, slipped step-up screen, a pick & pop, and one last flare screen by the 5 to empty the paint. The spacing struggles at times but they force you into uncommon situations and actions that it presents the opportunity for miscommunication and scoring opportunities.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Motion Floppy Flare

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is a sample of the organic nature of the Texas Tech offense. It is hard to know whether or not this is a designed action after the floppy with Culver due to the constant player freedom to screen off ball at any time but this does give you a preview of the certain type of actions you will be responsible to communicate through and guard when playing vs. Texas Tech.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Box Rip Lob

Matt Wheeler 04/08/2019

Texas Tech opened their Final Four game against Michigan State with this variation of their box set to get a lob dunk. 2 fakes the cross screen for 3 then cuts over 4 to the wing. This is a common action that they run in their "Box PNR" play. 3 then sets a back screen for 4. 1 passes to 4 at the rim for the lob dunk.

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Iverson Point Ricky

This is another simple set that has high volume results. Depending on how the defense plays back-screens you can save this wrinkle for a key moment to get a great shooter a shot. If the defender is jumping to the ball and getting through the backscreen first the cutter can simply cut back out on the weak side for a wide open fade. The big can read the catch and go right into a step up screen if there is no advantage on the catch as well. A great wrinkle would be to slip your 5 man on the down-screen if there is switching or miscommunication. Blog Post: Texas Tech Defense Puts Opponents on Red Alert See More

Basketball Play - Texas Tech Red Raiders - Hot Action

Texas Tech Red Raiders - Hot Action

Dave Nedbalek 04/08/2019

This is an extremely difficult action to make x5 guard but is incredibly simple to run. We call this "Hot Action" which is a back screen off-ball, followed immediately by an on-ball screen. If the big tags the cutter on the back-screen as he should, unless they are switching, this puts him late to his ball screen coverage. Simple, yet effective.

Michigan State Spartans - 21 Pin Chin

Diccon Lloyd-Smeath 04/07/2019

ATO set from Michigan State Head Coach Tom Izzo. Play starts with a 21 DHO on the wing and a Pin Down on the weak side. As the ball is reversed, the PG clears the corner and the wing receives a chin screen for the lob. Diagram is for the traditional set up with a SG receiving the DHO, Michigan State ran this with a taller athlete on the end of a lob. Blog Post: Michigan State's Championship Identity See More

Virginia Cavaliers - EOG STS SLOB

Matt Wheeler 04/07/2019

Virginia ran this play to get them into the championship game, drawing a foul on the three-point shot and giving them three free throws to take the lead . Kyle Guy (3) made a three-pointer on the previous possession to bring the deficit to 1. After Auburn hit a free throw to get their lead to 2, Virginia was able to get the ball into the front court and call a timeout with 1.5 seconds left. The initial option on this play was a lob to the rim for Mamadi Diakite. The secondary option for the lead went back to Guy cutting to the corner off the screen from 5.
