Basketball Play - Las Vegas Aces - Thumbs Up

Las Vegas Aces - Thumbs Up

Meaghan Volek 08/22/2019

In his first year as head coach of the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces, Bill Lambier was given a tough task: effectively blend the offensively post play-minded games of 2018 Rookie of the Year A'Ja Wilson and newly acquired All-Star Liz Cambage. With 18.6 seconds remaining in the second half and leading the Connecticut Sun by 1 point, Coach Lambier calls "Thumbs Up" as an end of time score. The play demonstrates an effective use of an offense that desires to optimize two talented post players. The play is a quick hitter that begins with a high ball screen and can lead to a low post lay-up, or a three-point opportunity. The play can be successful for end of time situations, and contains easy actions for a play call after a timeout. See More

San Antonio Spurs - Backdoor SLOB

Key points: guard (1) to big (5) screen helps ensure you can get the ball in to 5. Having shooters on the floor at the 1, 2, and 4 positions keeps the lane open for the 3 on the back cut. 5 needs to be a good passer. 3 must set up his man by cutting hard at 5 before back cutting.

The Aces find creative ways to utilize pinch post entries and actions to create advantages for their best players. In this situation, using Liz Cambage as a permanent screener and allowing Kayla McBride to use her craftiness and speed gets the Aces their best scorer 1 on 1 against a recovering defender with plenty of space to operate.

Las Vegas Aces - Triangle Rip Flash Flare EOG SLOB

Aseem Rastogi 06/01/2019

The Aces ran this SLOB as they were clawing back in a tense game with the Phoenix Mercury. The most dangerous person in this situation is the inbounder, Kayla McBride. Well timed and executed screening creates an opportunity for her to get to the rim and finish.
