During the 2009 NBA Finals, the LA Lakers run this quick elbow action versus the Orlando Magic for a quick score from Kobe Bryant. If the defense looks to over help on this action look to throwback to 5 (Gasol) rolling or throwback to 1 (Fisher) at the top of the key.
The Michigan Wolverines used this set against the Louisville Cardinals in the NCAA Championship game.
The set incorporates a lot of cuts and rub screens to free players for possible shots.
What makes this so efffective is the "reads" the Wolverines make in order to get the shots they want against the match-up zone of the Cardinals.
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.
High Elbow Flash Action
In this play Cameron Dollar hits Ed O'Bannon flashing to the ballside elbow to initiate the offense
High Elbow Flash Action
Toby Bailey cut backdoor staying wide looking for the pass from E. O'Bannon
As Bailey is cutting to the basket:
Cameron Dollar who took over for the injured Tyus Edney makes a direct cut to the basket and receives the pass from E. O'Bannon for his shot attempt
The 5 man Georg Zidek did a good job stepping out giving space for the cut
UCLA Curl Cut Action
In this set, Toby Bailey ran the PG position
Cameron Dollar (1) gets a backscreen from E. O'Bannon looking for a quick hit backdoor
Charles O'Bannon (3) and Georg Zidek (5) exchange positions setting up the next action in this set
UCLA Curl Cut Action
Cameron Dollar (1) then sets a backscreen for E. O'Bannon who was wide open under the basket
On the opposite side:
Georg Zidek (5) set a downscreen for C. O'Bannon (3) who curled the cut as his defender was trailing
Bailey chose to hit C. O'Bannon here, but this is a real good set to catch the defense in a "switching" situation
This set was ran by the LA Lakers Summer League Team. There are a lot of different options from this play and it is really important for your point guard to make the right decision. I really like how this play opens up the floor on the ball side, but keeps the defenders busy on the weak side.
The 1st option is a dibble handoff between the 5 and 3
The 2nd option is a kickout to the 1 and then a Pick & Roll with the 5 to open up three different looks
Jerry Sloan used to use this play in a BLOB situation to free up his shooters and create confusion amongst the defense. Because of the odd formation and amount of bodies in the paint as a result, Utah would get a free look from the periemter or catch a defender out of position in the paint trying to compensate for their team's poor defensive strategy.
This was a play I saw the Pacers run against the Miami Heat in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Finals. It got Roy Hibbert a wide open shot near the rim, but before that action took place, Paul George started to back down his man in the post on an empty side, indicating an isolation option for George. Coach Frank Vogel drew up a great play here to get his two best offensive players good looks in the same action.
This Sideline out of Bounds play was run by the Utah Jazz under the leadership of Jerry Sloan. Sloan used a handoff/ downscreen curl simultaneously to get the ball into a cutting big man, who would usually get to the free throw line as a result of this play. There are many options for a layup or a shot in a very brief amount of action; all around one of the better side-out plays I've seen.
Fence Curl Pop comes from Rick Adelman, which he has run both in Sacramento and with the Minnesota Wolves. Adelman usually calls this play out of timeouts when he sees something in the way the defense is playing screening actions. The play is designed to get a layup for a shooting guard or an open elbow jumper for a power forward. When Kevin Love runs this play for the Wolves he steps out to the three point line, making this an extremely difficult play to defend.
Blind Hit is a very quick backdoor option run by current UTEP and former USC Men's Basketball Coach Tim Floyd. Whether a defense is over-pressuring or caught napping, this is an effective backdoor option to get your guard a layup or dunk.
Heat ran this at 7:45 of Q3 in game 7. When Chalmers clears to the corner he first runs at Bosh faking the screen. As this is happening Miller is sprinting into the back screen. The Spurs switched the pick and pop. Parker was guarding Miller and on the switch Parker guarded Wade and Manu guarded Miller. When Miller set the ball screen it was in the middle, but so low the screen was at the nail of the FT line.
