Dallas Mavericks Push 24

This play from the Dallas Mavericks is all about timing. If 2 sets a great screen for 5, 3 can look to pass to 5 for a quick score. Additionally, having 2 set a great screen for 5 will make it more difficult for X2 to deal with the pick & roll coming from 4. As 2 comes off he has numerous options:

  • Attack rim or pull-up jumper
  • Pass to 1 fading to corner
  • Throwback to 4 (who can shoot or go into dribble hand-off with 3)
  • Drop pass to 5
  • If X3 sags in heavily to help on a throwback to 4, look to missile a pass to 3 for a corner three pointer
