Basketball Play - Zipper Down Quick

Zipper Down Quick

Kyle Gilreath 02/26/2015

Last night late in their game vs the Houston Rockets, LA Clippers head coach Doc Rivers drew up this sideline out-of-bounds play in a timeout to get a 3-pointer for JJ Redick. While the shot didn't go in, and it wasn't exactly a clean look, the initial action and options were great and ones that can be tweaked for success. See More

Basketball Play - Houston Rockets Short Corner Post ISO

Houston Rockets Short Corner Post ISO

Wes Kosel 03/17/2015

Here is a play from the Houston Rockets that they use to get an open look in the post or short corner. The play starts with players 1-3 on the perimeter and 4 at the top of the key. 4 moves towards 1 to set a ball-screen. The purpose of the ball-screen in this play is to force 5's defender (X5) into help position on penetration. Once the point guard reads that X5 is helping over, he can pitch the ball out to 2 on the wing and 2 looks inside to 5 posting up. Once 5 has the ball, he has a choice to take his man middle or drive baseline. With either option, the rest of the players on the floor know exactly where to cut depending on which direction 5 drives. See More

Basketball Play - Houston Rockets "Elbow Get"

Houston Rockets "Elbow Get"

Gibson Pyper 05/07/2015

The Houston Rockets have hurt teams alot this postseason by utilizing their power forwards as Pick & Roll ballhandlers and forcing the opponents two big men to both defend the Pick & Roll. They have used Josh Smith & Terrance Jones to create easy buckets against both the Mavericks and now the Clippers. They opened up Game 2 with this set and scored multiple times against the Mavericks. The Atlanta Hawks also utilized this set against the Wizards, getting an easy lob. This set was made famous by the Phoenix Suns 7 Seconds or Less offense, naming it "Elbow Get" as they utilized Diaw & Shawn Marion to score off of it often. Rockets get the ball to the power forward at the elbow (or lane line extended) and have Dwight Howard set a ballscreen and roll to the rim. See More

The Houston Rockets utilize the 4 & 5 man in the Pick & Roll is in the post. They have a guard exit to the wing, enter the ball into the post and have Dwight Howard set a flare screen for the wing man. He then follows up and sets a post Pick & Roll for the 4 man in the post and rolls to the rim. See More

Basketball Play - Houston Rockets Big-Big Drag

Houston Rockets Big-Big Drag

Craig LeVasseur 05/12/2015

This is a very basic early offense option that Houston used against Dallas in the 1st round of the NBA Playoffs. The drag screen typically involves the point guard and one or both bigs, but here Josh Smith is the ballhandler and coming off of a screen from Dwight Howard to his strong left hand. The NBA 4 man is not used to defending the ballhandler in a P/R, and Howard rolls hard to the rim always looking for a lob, making this an extremely difficult cover for the defense. Shooters are spread in the corners to limit the ability of help defenders. See More

Basketball Play - Houston Rockets Turn 4 Flare

Houston Rockets Turn 4 Flare

Craig LeVasseur 05/12/2015

Houston used this play in the 1st Round of the NBA Playoffs against the Dallas Mavericks for a Josh Smith to Dwight Howard lob. This simple Turn 4 set gives Smith good positioning for a post up, and the flare option for Trevor Ariza is always available to keep the defense honest. A 4-5 pick and roll is a difficult enough play to defend, but moving the screen down to the block confuses the coverages even more than usual. In this play the defense commited to the pick and roll too soon, and Howard spun out of the pick for a lob pass. See More

Basketball Play - Houston Rockets Elbow Get

Houston Rockets Elbow Get

Craig LeVasseur 05/12/2015

Houston used this play multiple times in the 1st round series against the Dallas Mavericks. Josh Smith and Dwight Howard posed massive problems defensively for the Mavericks with this play. Dwight Howard slipped or rolled hard for multiple lobs, sealed x4 when the defense switched, and even sealed on a switch and then spun out again for a lob. Add in Josh Smith's ability to finish with his running left hook in the lane, and this play caused fits for the defense. See More

Basketball Play - Houston Rockets Fist Up Fist Out

Houston Rockets Fist Up Fist Out

Craig LeVasseur 05/12/2015

Even when the Rockets weren't punishing the Mavericks in round one with the Josh Smith-Dwight Howard pick and roll combination, they still found ways to take advantage of the defense and connect for lobs. This is a simple 1-4 high pick, with a throwback to Smith. He immediately goes into Side P/R action with James Harden, or DHO in this case. This is hard work for x4, Dirk, who shows hard on the DHO. Note the 1 and 3 switching spots on the weakside, which makes x1, JJ Barea, the low defender. As Harden hits Smith on the roll, x5 must pull over to stop the drive. JJ Barea is sitting on Howard's top leg like he is supposed to be, but that hardly matters. This is an easy Smith to Howard lob. See More
