Houston Rockets: High Post Entry, Fake Handoff/Pin Down Basketball Play (10-11)

The reason this basketball play works so well is because the big man who has to guard the pin down action also has to guard two consecutive pin down screens. If the defender helps on the curl then the second shooter will be open, but if he/she doesn’t help on the curl then the curl man is open. It is a very tough spot for the post defender to be in, and most post players aren’t going to be sure how to handle it.

Play Goal: Get a shot for the second cutter off of the pin down action.

Play Tips: The point guard needs to sell the fake handoff and then space to the corner for a shot if his man helps off too much. The first cutter needs to curl hard and draw the big man in.
