NBA Horns Series

The NBA has popularized the ‘Horns’ series over the past decade to be one of the most popular formations in basketball. ‘Horns’ originated and was coined “V” by the late Chuck Daly while he was with the Detroit Pistons. There are numerous formations, options, and reads out of the horns, but today I wanted to share a few of my favorite from the best point guards in the NBA. One element that makes the following clips so effective is the craftiness of the ball-handler. This video features:

  1. Rim Attack
  2. Tight Wrap (Jump shot)
  3. Early Split
  4. Throwback
  5. Lifted Guard (Making the bump defender stay home)
  6. Twist (Re-screen) and a Double Twist
