Don’t waste the chance to run a set basketball play out of a sideline inbound pass. You should either be looking to score the basketball right off of the inbound pass or be getting right into your offensive set. This is just one of the rockets normal basketball plays, but it is executed well out of the sideline inbound play. Great teams are able to execute and get the shot that they want to get.
Play Name: Houston Rockets: SLOB Down Screen, Back Screen, Curl Post Up/Pop Play (10-11)
Play Goal: Get a curl off of the post up for your cutter. If the cutter’s defender cheats the curl screen then shooter cuts out for a shot.
Play Tips: Sell the post up and lead the cutter on the curl. Cutter needs to read the defense and decide whether to curl or cut out for a shot.
