Basketball Play - Box Side Elevator SLOB

Box Side Elevator SLOB

Adam Spinella 09/04/2013

The Portland TrailBlazers coach Terry Stotts drew up this end game SLOB for a Blazers game winner. Needing a three pointer in a catch and shoot situation, Box Side Elevator starts in a box formation with the shooter on the opposite block. Watch the weird spacing on this play and how awkward it becomes for the defenders to hedge on the elevator screen. See More

Basketball Play - Granger Sts Iso

Granger Sts Iso

Adam Spinella 08/23/2013

Instead of "over-coaching" and getting difficult looks for your players at the rim, you can now relax and draw forth the following plays to get your best players in isolation at the end of a game. In isolation sets, all the work by the coach is done before the player gets the ball. From there, it's up to the superstar to make a great one-on-one play. Danny Granger hit the game winner off this isolation set, drawn up by Frank Vogel out of a Box formation. See More

Basketball Play - Zipper Go Back

Zipper Go Back

Adam Spinella 08/22/2013

The Dallas Mavericks used the same "curl" structure when trying to get a lob for Shawn Marion. Coaches simply run the player they want to lob off a downscreen, then have him curl back around towards the rim - and Rick Carlisle did this at the end of a preseason game. This particular of play is called "Zipper Go Back". See More

08 Nets Stack

Adam Spinella 08/21/2013

In 2008 against his former team the Raptors, Vince Carter hit a clutch game-tying three pointer. The play was excellently drawn up by Lawrence Frank, which draws attention to every player on the court besides Vince Carter, a good way to get him free. See More

Basketball Play - 08 Nets Sts Slip Lob

08 Nets Sts Slip Lob

Adam Spinella 08/20/2013

After Carter buried the Raptors and sent the game to OT, he got another chance to win it in the extra frame. Lawrence Frank drew up another lob play for him, once again banking on the defense paying attention to players other than Carter. The misdirection lob play is a staple in SLOB situations, and Carter does a great job selling the screen to set it up. See More

Basketball Play - 08 Raptors Backdoor Find

08 Raptors Backdoor Find

Adam Spinella 08/20/2013

In 2008, Jay Triano drew this play for a high handoff with Chris Bosh, who would likely pop out and set a ballscreen. Instead, the play worked out so that Bosh's presence with the ball would serve as a decoy for an off-ball player to cut backdoor and receive a pass from the man Bosh pitches the ball to. See More

Basketball Play - 04 Nets Lob

04 Nets Lob

Adam Spinella 08/19/2013

Richard Jefferson and Jason Collins connected on a fantastic alley oop in a 2004 game to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. The play, designed to get Richard Jefferson free at the rim, works well because of the amount of attention paid to Jason Kidd as their star player. His ability to serve as a decoy away from the basket was instrumental in freeing up space at the basket and getting Jefferson's man away from him. See More

2010 Suns Rub Fence

Adam Spinella 08/08/2013

Suns Coach Alvin Gentry ran this as a catch and shoot set against the New Jersey Nets in an end game situation. With only 2 seconds remaining on the clock, Channing Frye, a stretch-4, used a well-set double screen, or fence, from Gortat and Nash to knock down the catch and shoot three. See More

Basketball Play - Center Trip HO

Center Trip HO

Adam Spinella 08/03/2013

Center Trip DHO is a play used by Mike Woodson and the New York Knicks to get either Raymond Felton attacking the rim or Tyson Chandler open on a lob. The Knicks use the extra attention given by defenses to Carmelo Anthony as a decoy, and the valuable shooting skills of J.R. Smith and Steve Novak as an opportunity to space the floor on one side of the court. See More

Basketball Play - High KD Drive

High KD Drive

Adam Spinella 08/02/2013

High KD Drive is an option read half-court set for both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. The Thunder ran this several times with James Harden at the 2. It is designed to give Durant the primary option to score, and if the opportunity presents itself based on how the defense plays Durant, Westbrook will have the green light to drive to the basket.

Basketball Play - Trickle (1-4 High)

Trickle (1-4 High)

Adam Spinella 08/01/2013

Too often, 1-4 High offenses neglect post players because they're designed to accentuate the perimeter scorers - getting baskets for your post men is just as important, if not more important, when your normal motion sets don't accentuate it. Trickle is a play designed to get one of the post players a quick opportunity for a layup or post move. See More

Basketball Play - Strong Back Elevator

Strong Back Elevator

Adam Spinella 07/31/2013

This is a play used last season by the Washington Wizards under coach Randy Wittman. The Wizards would try to get an open three pointer for Bradley Beal or Martell Webster, who they start in the corner out of a Horns formation. You'll see the defense pay a lot of attention to John Wall on this play as well; it's one of the few occasions he's been utilized as a screener and this is a good example of how it can be effective for the best player on a team to be the screener - it sets up openings for others.
