Have You Seen THIS Before? GENIUS PLAY For Luka Doncic

Have you ever seen inside screens like this creating an alleyway for the point guard? Doncic goes through and Even though the Mavs didn’t score directly off of those, it’s an interesting and creative concept that I haven’t seen before so I knew I needed to feature it in this collection that I’ve made from the last couple of days.
What up everybody my name is Stefan and this is Heat Check. Let’s get into it.
The Hawks initially run this double screen for the point guard, but as Bogdanovic starts clearing out, you see the quick change of direction and Capella already knows, so after the initial screen, he moves down to set another one for Bogi. The catch, the shot and the three.
You can see how the shooter is seemingly just slowly going through the motion at the beginning but in a split second, he starts running back and that’s what catches the defense off guard.
I really liked this action from the Cavaliers against Toronto. You can see as the 2 men game is starting to develop up top, OG Anunoby has to keep an eye and try to help on the possible penetration. So Cleveland’s Dean Wade sets a back screen for Isaac Okoro. BTW guys I’m well aware that only Cavs fans know these players but bear with me.
Anyway, Okoro is uncontested for a three right here, but he sees the lane being open and cuts inside. The pass and the easy layup.
As we let the play roll one more time, check out how many options they got in this moment.
The layup inside, and the 2 shooters out. Beautiful play design and execution from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
And speaking of cuts, it’s not often that I see a big man sneaking up like this, just like a guard would. On the pick and roll, you can see all the attention from the defense being there.
So as Shroder penetrates, Andre Drummond, tip toes behind his defender going from one side of the basket to the other. Dennis keeps his head up and sees this, so dishes it out to the big man for the finish.
Next, Not really a set design here, but check out the awareness by Rajon Rondo.
With 5 seconds on the shot clock, Paul George gets stuck and throws a crosscourt pass towards him. In this moment, Rondo sees Terrance Mann open in the corner, but knows that the clock is running down, so he just flips it straight to him with a touch pass. Mann is able to get it up before the buzzer and knock down the three. Great awareness by Rondo, pulling another awesome move from his bag of tricks.
Moving on, just look at the beautiful movement by Minesotta. We got the hand off to start things off, then you have a quick pass to Towns, and the guards are crossing around him at the three point line. This ends with a great looking acrobatic layup but the shooter was open up top as well. Check out this lightning quick development in full speed.
Next, keep your eye on P.J. Washington who’s gonna set a quick screen here, then immediately cut inside and screen for Rozier, and as you can see he forces a switch in both situations, so at the end P.J. is left with the much smaller Jrue Holiday under the basket.
Gets the pass, bumps and finishes with the hook.
Again, it all happens in the blink of an eye, and you can see how much a second is worth in this league.
Ok I know, that I focus on great offense in these videos, but check out one instance of terrible defense, that made me watch this play a few times to see how the Rockets got the easiest points.
The Timberwolves got faked out with the simplest hand off and that creates a 2 on 1 situation against Towns that ends up with a dunk by Christian Wood. You can see Okogie signaling right here to McLaughlin to stay there but I guess he didn’t see that, resulting in an open lane and 2 points for the Rockets.
At the end, I feel like Doug Mcdermott is always on these videos. His off ball movement and the screening that the Pacers run for him, allows for some easy points.
It happened again last night against Portland. As he comes off of the double screen, Dougie is open for the shot right here, but he uses the momentum and acceleration to continue all the way to the basket and go past Carmelo and finish with the layup.
Hey, I always enjoy making these videos but I’m tinkering with the concept. How often I should make them, how long, how many days to include stuff like that. So let me know if you have any ideas, as I try to make these videos regular once or twice a week.
That’s it for now, subscribe and talk to you in the next one. Peace out.

    Doncic has proven that at just 22 that he is the franchise-altering player that Dallas believed he was when they took him with the third overall selection in the 2018 NBA draft. And yes, Dallas really did know something. It was in 2018 when coach Rick Carlisle told our Mike Fisher, “He’s an authentic original. He’s truly unlike any specific player that I’ve ever seen.” And now he's even better.

  38. Pamplona Christian

    Pamplona ChristianПре 14 дана

    Luka has been arguably the most fun-to-watch NBA player in his first few years in the league. There’s a good chance he could average a triple-double in a season shortly. Dončić has unbelievable vision and basketball IQ, not just for someone his age but for an NBA star in general.

    How bout: Replays that purposely were ignored, not shown, or the commentators changed the subject to some other fill in conversations during a straight to free throw moment. Meanwhile the video engineers are told when not to show certain replays from fouls called, especially with star players, to move the production along. All of this to not expose the obvious bias to forcing the momentum of said team to influence a win, as well as the amount of margins -- all of this for the gambling and mob underworld. This manipulation happens for regular and championship games alike. I know because i had dinner with a few of these video guys and I asked them straight up about it...they both looked at each other and quietly nodded to me. Not to mention you can notice this trend if you're an NBA bball fan. All of these ideas to be backed up by the real events of Tim Donaghy -- NBA gambling fall guy. They learned how to do it better after him 🧐 So yeah, do a video about that
