Basketball Play - Golden State Warriors Double Drag

Golden State Warriors Double Drag

Adam Spinella 05/22/2017

Golden State is a great defensive team, so they get to attack on offense multiple times per game before a defense gets set. When Curry has true post players surrounding him, the Warriors will often run into Double Drag, a double-high ball screen action that strikes before a defense can properly get into position. Because of the spacing of shooters in the corners and the attention Steph receives in ball screens, the rim is often left unguarded. See More

Basketball Play - Ball Screen Sets - Horns Flare

Ball Screen Sets - Horns Flare

Doug Brotherton 05/04/2017

"Horns Flare" is a wrinkle off of the basic "Horns Action," It has two major benefits. The first is that it puts the big, who is in the middle of defending a ball screen action, into a tough defensive scramble. If read properly, this will create a big offensive advantage. It also occupies both bigs, away from the basket, which opens the lane for an aggressive drive from the guard. See More

Basketball Play - Spurs - "Fake Hammer Snap" (SLOB)

Spurs - "Fake Hammer Snap" (SLOB)

Doug Brotherton 04/23/2017

The Spurs trailed the Grizzlies by 3, with 22 seconds left, and had the ball on the sideline. Popovich and the Spurs are known for their "Hammer Action," which is a baseline drift play. After a zipper screen to get the ball inbounds, the Spurs designed a "Hammer Action." Behind Kawhi Leonard's drive, they set a down screen for Patty Mills. The misdirection put the Grizzlies into a defensive scramble. On the pass to Mills, Kawhi's defender left to help. Kawhi spaced to the corner, where Mills made the extra pass. This resulted in a wide open 3 for Kawhi Leonard, which tied the game. In the tough scenario of needing a 3, late in the game, the Spurs got the rare uncontested look. A great design, with tremendous execution. Despite Marc Gasol's game winning shot, handing the Spurs a loss, this was the obvious "Xs and Os Play of the Game!" See More

Basketball Play - Virginia "5 Shake"

Virginia "5 Shake"

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

This is an Offensive staple of the Virginia Cavaliers. This offense is so well run by the Cavaliers, they read everything so well and know how to move without the ball. Tony Bennett is such a defensive guru, but this Offensive action they run is really nice to watch and the continuity keeps it moving throughout the shot clock. See More

Basketball Play - South Carolina "Nail Play"

South Carolina "Nail Play"

Dana Beszczynski 03/21/2017

South Carolina does an effective job running the "Nail Play" looking to get Sidarious Thornwell a quick look at an open 3. When the look isn't there, the offense continues with the Big-Big cross screen looking for a quick strike in the Post. The Gamecocks finish the set off with two PNR actions forcing defensive rotation and an open lane for 1 v 1 action from Dozier. See More

Basketball Play - MTSU Transition Game

MTSU Transition Game

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

MTSU became the nations team last year after upsetting Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament. This year as a very underrated 12 seed, they are back once again with a veteran team & Coach who gets every last ounce of energy out of his team. MTSU is one of the best Teams I've seen this year at "reading" actions and reacting off them. Out of this Transition set, they're able to get two ball screen actions which in any defensive scheme, is very hard to guard. See More

Basketball Play - Arizona -  Multiple Ball Screen Action

Arizona - Multiple Ball Screen Action

Dana Beszczynski 03/18/2017

The Arizona Wildcats really do a tremendous job of moving their players around in their half court sets. Here is a multiple ball screen action which given the Defensive positioning can lead to a backdoor cut or open up the direct drive to the ring. If the Defense sags in on the penetration, the Cats have their shooters spotting up behind the arc ready for a kick-out pass. See More

Basketball Play - Virginia Set Play

Virginia Set Play

Dana Beszczynski 03/05/2017

Tony Bennett is always seen as a "master" Coach for the Cavaliers defensive abilities, but his Offensive diversity outside of their normal motion sets are really good. Here's a play the Cavaliers ran against the Tar Heels. A set with so much movement and options, this is a set that will give your opponents fits. See More

Basketball Play - Oklahoma State Double Stagger Action

Oklahoma State Double Stagger Action

Dana Beszczynski 12/04/2016

Brad Underwood came to Oklahoma State after a very successful three year stay at Stephen F. Austin where he compiled a record of 89-14. He tied Brad Stevens for most victories at an NCAA school after their first three years. The first coach to ever win three straight Southland Conference Coach of the Year awards, Underwood led SFA to the two longest winning streaks in league history. He and the Lumberjacks won 29 straight games in 2013-14, and his team rode a 21-game win streak into Sunday's NCAA Tournament second-round showdown against Notre Dame, which came down to the wire. Underwood piled up a 53-1 record in conference play during his three-years at SFA and put the Lumberjacks in the national spotlight after an upset win over fifth-seeded VCU in the opening round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament. He matched that success again in 2016 after taking down No. 3 seed West Virginia in the first round. In fact, the Lumberjacks came within two seconds of a trip to the Sweet 16. Underwood's SFA teams were known for their defensive prowess, but also for their assist-oriented offenses. This season, the Lumberjacks led the nation in scoring margin (+16.9), turnover margin (+6.5) and turnovers forced (18.6), and also ranked second in assists per game (18.7) and seventh in steals per game (9.1). His style of play will be exciting to watch at Oklahoma State and this double stagger action out of Transition is just one example of his prowess as a tactician. This is a great set play for Phil Forte a marksman from behind the arc. See More

Basketball Play - Los Angeles Clippers - ATO Stack

Los Angeles Clippers - ATO Stack

Ryan Nguyen 11/30/2016

With 18.6 seconds in OT and the Clippers down 118-115 to the Nets, Doc Rivers ran this ATO action. Since J.J. Redick's defender stays attached to him and does not help on penetration, Jamal Crawford's defender has to rotate from the weak-side to wall off penetration. As a result of the defensive rotation, Chris Paul finds Jamal Crawford on the weakside for the open 3-point shot. See More

Basketball Play - Memphis Grizzlies - SLOB Iverson Side Elevator

Memphis Grizzlies - SLOB Iverson Side Elevator

Matt Wheeler 08/01/2016

The Memphis Grizzlies ran this down 4 with 20 seconds left in an NBA Summer League game. In this situation they would need 2 scores and they opted to go for the 3 coming out of a timeout. The multiple screening actions from 4 & 5 caused the defensive confusion and led to an open shot for 4. 4 & 5's defenders have to guard back to back screening actions, first with the Iverson cut made by 2 and then the elevator screen for 3. If 5 cut to the basket instead of drifting to the perimeter he might have gotten a layup or at least would have created more space for the shot from 4. See More

Basketball Play - Georgetown 5 Up Backdoor

Georgetown 5 Up Backdoor

Adam Spinella 04/12/2016

BLOB, or baseline out of bounds, plays are wonderful opportunities for a backdoor action because the defense gets sucked close to their man as they deny a pass towards the rim. Georgetown's John Thompson drew up this great set to get a backdoor out of a baseline inbound situation, sucking the entire defense away from the rim in order to do so. Thompson isolates the man guarding the inbounder as well, turning him into the help defender on a backdoor. As many coaches know and communicate to their players, the offensive player inbounding the ball is always dangerous once the ball gets inbounded. By paying too close attention to the inbounder, a defensive team will have no help at the rim on a backdoor cut. See More
