Serbia Offense vs. USA – Rio Olympics
Post Pin Shuffle Single
Serbia runs this play to create multiple scoring cuts from an overload set. Once the ball gets to 4 on the left wing, 1 sets a shuffle screen for 3 on the wing and 5 screens down for 2 in the corner. A lot of teams run this action with either 1 setting a screen for 2 to continue the play or running 1 off of the screen from 5.
SLOB Zipper PNR
2 makes a zipper cut off of 4 to get the ball from 1. 2 gets a high ball screen from 5 at the top of the key. 2 can use it or turn it down to attack into the lane. The opposite big man can either space out to the wing or look to duck in the post while his defender helps on the pick and roll action.
