Quick Ram Roll
Orlando used this play against Cleveland in NBA pre-season action. The play starts in a horns set and one big quick screens down for the other in the lane. The big that got the screen then sprints into a ball screen for the point guard. This screening action “Ram” puts x5 at a disadvantage if he is wanting to hard hedge on the ball screen or show at all. As 1 dribbles right off of the ball screen, 5 can roll or pop to his shooting range as 2 and 3 stay spaced in the corners and 4 moves to the ball side short corner area.
