Elite Hoops Playset: San Antonio

Posted by Aj Holland | Friday, September 26, 2014 | Category: |

In order to be a successful team in the NBA, you need to be able to get your 3pt shooters in position to score. Players that may be on the older side, or just are not explosive enough to create a shot for themselves can benefit greatly from set plays and misdirections designed to free them up for a shot. One team that had that figured out last year was the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs have been successful over the past year and looking at plays like this you can see why.



The play above begins with P5 flashing to receive the pass from P1 as soon as P1 crosses halfcourt. Once P5 catches the ball, P2 cuts to the opposite corner and P4 sets a flare screen for P1. P5 then throws the skip pass to P1 and finishes the staggered screen away with P3 for P2 to come off for a shot. While this is happening P4 is diving to the strong side block to be an option for the post entry. This play is great for a team consisting two knock down shooters on the perimeter.
