Basketball Play - LA Sparks - Elbow Flex Rip

LA Sparks - Elbow Flex Rip

Matt Wheeler 09/24/2017

The LA Sparks ran this play late in the 4th quarter of Game 1 of the WNBA Finals to try to get 4 isolated in the post off of the back screen from 2. After 2 sets the flex screen 3 continues cutting to the corner to get 2 & 4 isolated on the weak side of the floor. 2 sets the back screen on 4 then pops out to receive the pass from 5. 4 looks to pass to 4 but in this situation the post entry was defended well and the Sparks went to a secondary option with a ball screen.

Basketball Play - Virginia Cavaliers - Single Tag PNR  Defense

Virginia Cavaliers - Single Tag PNR Defense

Matt Wheeler 04/04/2019

By having their post players hard hedge the ball screens, Virginia needs to provide help when the screener rolls to the basket. X5’s first job in this situation is to redirect the ball to half court and not allow 1 to turn the corner and get in the lane. If he is too concerned about his matchup with 5 he won’t be able to provide great help on the ball screen. This is where x3 comes into play to provide help until x5 gets back to his match up . X3 has a tough job to do. He has to tag 5 and take away the pass for him rolling to the basket. He then has to change direction and close out on his man to contest the shot and take away any penetration. This is a very difficult action to guard but by being aggressive and providing early help Virginia is able to cover for each other and take away high percentage shots at the rim and open shots behind the arc.

Golden State Warriors - Weak Corner PNR

Matt Wheeler 05/22/2019

The Golden State Warriors used this play during the first quarter of Game 3 against the Portland Trail Blazers to get the ball to Draymond Green (4) on the roll and he can make a read to pass to the open man. Once the ball is reversed to Steph Curry (1), Green set the ball screen and rolled to the basket. The Blazers hard hedged the screen which got Green temporarily open. The Blazers had to provide help on him to take away the layup. Green read where the help came from and passed to Andre Iguodala for the open three-point shot. See More

Australia - Rip STS

Matt Wheeler 09/11/2019

Australia opened their World Cup match against France with this play to get Patti Mills a shot. 2 starts the play by setting the back screen for 4. While this is happening, 3 cuts to the wing so his defender can't provide help on the possible lob pass to 4. 2 then cuts off the screen from 5 to get the ball on the wing. If 2 can't turn the corner right away for the shot, 5 follows to set a ball screen as the other players spread out along the perimeter for spacing. See More

Basketball Play - LA Lakers - ICE Defense 3-on-3 Drill

LA Lakers - ICE Defense 3-on-3 Drill

Ryan Nguyen 08/18/2018

Continuity defensive drill from Luke Walton and the Los Angeles Lakers from their 2016 Training Camp. This drill works on side pick and roll defense where the defense looks to Ice/Blue/Push/Down, depending on your terminology. The on ball defender adjusts their stance to be on the top of hip of the ball handler. Goal is to prevent the ball handler from using the ball screen to get to the middle, keeping the ball on the sideline/baseline on the pass and follow action. On the throwback to the screener, the on ball defender works for a lock and trail. See video below diagram for more. See More
