Las Vegas Aces - Pinch Post Ricky Flare

Aseem Rastogi 06/01/2019

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.

The pinch post actions the Aces use are designed specifically to maximize the number of touches Wilson receives, many of which result in isolations for her in the elbow and mid-post areas. She is an absolutely lethal jump shooter from those areas, and is quicker than most of her counterparts which allows her to sweep and get to the rim with ease. After setting a downscreen for a slasher, Wilson finds her spot and receives the entry pass. From there, there is a handoff option, usually rejected in favor of a face up 1 on 1 play.

Las Vegas Aces - Pinch Post Series | Chicago

Aseem Rastogi 04/17/2019

Perhaps their most effective action, Chicago is taken straight from the Triangle offense to get a dynamic offensive player getting straight to the rim with space. In this case, that dynamic player is Kayla McBride, who is one of the premier scorers in the world. Statistically speaking, McBride ranks in the top 20 in the following categories: Points per game (8th - 18.2) Assists (17th - 3.5) FT% (91.7) 3P% (12th - 39.3%) Minutes (7th - 32.3) With a player as explosive as McBride, The Aces play at a constant advantage when she is moving downhill or coming off screens. Utilizing the Chicago action allows her to do both - come off a lateral screen from a post player and to take a handoff from another with space to her right (strong hand) to attack the rim. On occasion, McBride or Tamera Young will reject the Chicago screen, which can lead to either a double stagger for them toward the rim or the screener popping, making a one more pass to the corner player for a shot/drive decision on the closing defender. Finally, the Aces run a quick hitter to get into this same action, disguising the entry with an Iverson Cut by McBride, a pindown for Wilson, and finally the Chicago action. By running this "false" action prior to the action they actually want, they add an element of confusion for the defense, who now must contend with multiple screens prior to the scouted screens.

Las Vegas Aces - Pinch Post Series | Rip Screen Entry

Aseem Rastogi 04/17/2019

One of the Aces' go to sets, this pinch post series begins with a rip screen to get clean catches for players ready to attack. All the action goes to the rim with limited options or need for shooting long jumpers. Use this set to isolate a player who can face up and attack from 15 feet, your best shooter setting screens and popping, and your best slashers getting to the rim off handoffs and ball screens.

Golden State Warriors - Pinch Post Stagger Split

Matt Wheeler 10/23/2017

The Golden State Warriors utilize this play to get their 2 (usually Steph Curry or Klay Thompson) a shot off of a down screen. 1 initiates the offense with a pass to the high post, then follows it looking for a handoff. 2 & 4 set a stagger screen for 3. 3 curls around the first screen and cuts to the basket. 2 then uses the down screen from 4 to get the pass from 5 for a shot. http://bit.ly/2hMoKeTBlog Post: Offensive Actions Breakdown - Stagger Split See More

Golden State - Pinch Post Stagger

Matt Wheeler 10/07/2016

Golden State ran this play during their preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors have skilled players at multiple positions and took advantage of Draymond Green's (4) ability to initiate the offense, effectively acting as the point guard in this play. This creates opportunities for Curry (1) to play off the ball and run his defender off of screens. After receiving the pass from Green in the pinch post, Durant (3) has the option to handoff back to Green, hit Curry off the stagger, or go one on one if those options aren't available. See More

Basketball Play - USA W - Pinch Post Cross

USA W - Pinch Post Cross

Matt Wheeler 08/18/2016

The USA Women's team ran this play to open the second half in their quarterfinal game against Japan. With the score relatively close at the half, they wanted to get the ball inside to help establish a post presence. When 3 cuts off of 4 at the high post, she has the option to get the handoff and take it in for a layup. If the defense takes that away and no handoff is available, 3 continues across the lane to set a cross screen for 5 to free them up for the post entry pass. See More
