New Orleans Pelicans Zipper Hook Pick and Roll

The New Orleans Pelicans ran this play several nights ago to get Anthony Davis (5) screened into a spread pick & roll. Most NBA teams run this action with a single (or sometimes double as pictured) weakside pin-down for a catch & shoot at the elbow/slot area. I really like how the Pelicans turned this action into a screen the screener for Davis. The staggers, along with spacing Ryan Anderson (3) wide, caused the coverage on the pick & roll to be late and eliminating any help defenders in the paint for an easy pick & roll dunk.
