Jeff Hornacek – New York Knicks SLOB Offense

Jeff Hornacek New York Knicks SLOB Shuffle Play

This play starts with Carmelo Anthony throwing the ball in to Kristaps Porzingis. Once Porzingis has it, Carmelo Anthony cuts off of a shuffle screen and looks for a quick pass inside or can post up. Brandon Jennings sets the shuffle screen and cuts up after Anthony clears the screen. The second option for Porzingis is to pass to Jennings if his defender shows on the shuffle cut. If that isn’t there, Porzingis turns left and the 4 can look to screen down for Courtney Lee in the corner. However, 4 saw that Marc Gasol was helping heavily on the cut by Anthony and instead of screening he popped out for an open shot just inside the 3-point line.
