Elite Hoops Playset: Wheel Motion

Posted by Anonymous | Wednesday, November 18, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments

"Wheel Motion" is a play used by the Cleveland Cavs at times when they are searching for an open 3 point shot. It frees up players such as JR Smith, Mo Williams and Kyrie Irving to get to a spot where they can set their feet and knock down an open 3. It is a more complex play that requires great timing and solid screens so be aware of who is on the court when running this set.

"Wheel Motion" begins with P1 passing to P2 and cutting to the weak side block. P5 then pops out for a catch and performs a dribble handoff with P3 on the right wing. P1 then clears to the strong side corner and P5 spins back around to set a flare screen for P3 looking for a catch and shoot 3 pointers.

Elite Hoops Playset: Delay

Posted by Anonymous | Wednesday, November 11, 2015 | Category: | 0 comments

Golden State has started off the season on a tear! Majority of it is because of MVP Stephen Curry and having a great defensive team with players that can guard multiple positions but plays like the one below are great for such a versatile team. Skilled players are able to create for teammates and find open shots when penetrating into the paint.

"Delay" begins with P1 dribbling to the wing and passing to P5 at the top of the key. P1 and P4 then set down screens in the corners. P3 then comes off of a dribble handoff trying to get to the paint and create shots for players spotted up on the wings.
