The Lady Blue Devils of Duke run a variety of set plays against M2M and each set provides multiple scoring options
They do a very nice job incorporating the post game into their sets to take advantage of the very talented Elzabeth Williams
The Lady Blue Devils guards are also very adept at knocking down the 3 pt shot
The majority of Joe Johnson's clutch shots for the Nets this season have come on the infamous ISO-Joe plays that made Johnson's Atlanta Hawks' teams a bit of an eye sore on offense. To Johnson's credit, he's been remarkably efficient in one-on-one situations late in games this year, and he even hit the game-winner later in this game on an isolation possession.
But down three with 6.7 seconds left in the game against the Milwaukee Bucks the other night, P.J. Carlesimo went away from ISO ball and drew up a beautiful elevator screen sequence to get Johnson a wide open look at a three from the top of the key. Unphased by the moment, Johnson executed his cut perfectly and he got good screens from his teammates, allowing him to tie things up and send the game to overtime.

Marc Gasol is one of the truly underappreciated players in the league. He's a solid post-up player, a decent shooter, the best big man passer in the league (with his brother being a close second) and he may very well be the defensive player of the year in the NBA right now.
Memphis' offense is a cramped, inconsistent and often times ineffective collaboration of players who shrink the floor in an era that thrives on spacing it. When things go well for the Grizzlies, it almost always has something to do with Marc Gasol making a play for his teammates. Gasol is deadly from the elbows, as that position on the floor gives him a perfect vantage point of the floor and allows him to distribute from a high-low perspective. Here is one way the Grizz utilize Gasol's skillset from that particular spot on the floor.
Florida State ran this set numerous times on 11/27/12 against Minnesota in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge. FSU initially got the lay-up for the 2 man. The second time running this set, FSU got a wide open shot from the top of the key. The 3rd time they got a post entry (lob over the top for a dunk).
Iowas State ran this baseline stagger screen action looking to get a good look for the shooter Babb, Hi / Lo pass to the FT line, or a post isolation on the block
A well executed play and easy set to run at any level
In a flashback to 2012 when Ohio State was in the Final Four, Thad Matta ran this set play after a timeout in their match-up against Wisconsin at the Kohl Center
Ohio State entered the game undefeated and let a 17 pt lead disappear in the 2nd half as the Badgers got hot from outside
This Buckeye team had two very good shooters in this year and Coach Matta did a very good job running sets to get his shooters in a position to do the most damage
This set has different layers to it so it could be different quick hitters. The first is a flex screen followed by a down screen. When the play is run all the way through you can get a double screen for a 3pt shot and also a lob off a back screen.
Mike D'Antoni said something very interesting about his up-tempo offensive philosophies. He said that if you have the best team, why not try to give your players the most possessions possible. The theory being that the more times that Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash have to execute their offensive brilliance, the better it will be for his team since the opposition's talent won't be able to match them. If the game slows down, all of the sudden your margin for error shrinks and a handful of mistakes can cost you a game.
D'Antoni also said that he expects the Lakers to average around 110-115 points per game, which are numbers that haven't been reached since the Nash/Amare combo in Phoenix was broken up.
Those two things tell us that the Lakers will be playing at a very fast pace from now on, and despite the popular belief that their roster is too old to run, a free flowing offense is exactly what a veteran team wants in favor of a methodical offense like Boston runs which requires a lot of physical screening and post-up attempts. And having playmakers like Nash and Kobe together only makes this team more dangerous offensively because of his versatile they are coming off of pick-and-rolls. Nash is perhaps the greatest to ever operate a screen-and-roll and Bryant, because of his propensity to shoot, is a very underrated passer. Throw-in the most skilled big man in the league at power forward in Pau Gasol and the best finisher the league has seen since Shawn Kemp in Dwight Howard and we could have the makings of Showtime 2.0.
This play that I have designed would make good use of the cavalcade of skill players that the Lakers have. Because of the up-tempo offense the Lakers will be running, the play starts in semi-transition with Kobe handling the ball at the start. I have inserted Jodie Meeks into the line-up for Metta World Peace to add a true floor spacer. The shots that this set produces are all optimal ones based on these players career hotspots and you can run it several different ways with different players on the floor. It is best with this set up, though, with Kobe initiating the action, Nash bringing a ton of secondary concerns and Howard acting as the league's best roll man and lob catcher.
