Play of the day

Play of the day

Today’s play of the day comes from the Los Angeles Lakers.

 

My best guess is that this play was a great After Time Out (ATO) play to try and punch the ball into Kareem for him to go to work.

 

As the one man dribbles over the two loops around to set a UCLA or Rip screen for the 5 man.

On the weak side the 4 is setting a wide pin for the 3. This is only decoy to take away the weak side help on the 5 man post up.

If you have a player on your team that is dominant in the low block and a shooter who you can put in the 2 spot this is a great ATO play to try and get a quick layup.

If the 2 man’s defender over helps on the rip screen then the 2 should be wide open for a shot as well.
