The Miami Heat ran this two plays back to back last in during Game 4 of the NBA Finals versus the San Antonio Spurs. A trend in the NBA that I love and many coaches don't follow (which I don't understand why) is running plays that work in succession. If a play works well once, why not try it again and make your opponent guard it? That is what the Miami Heat did last night, Option 1 was a quick pin down for Ray Allen which led to an easy floater in the lane. The very next possession down the court the Heat ran the same action but the Spurs did a much better job defending and the Heat had to deviate to a different play.
5 (Bosh) pinned down for 2 (Allen) who curled into the lane for a floater.
5 (Bosh) pinned down for 2 (Allen). 2 wasn't able to curl into the lane so he set a middle pick & roll for 1 (Cole) and 5 cleaned it up with a second pick.
