Late in game 4 of the 2014 Playoffs the Chicago Bulls were in need of a score as they trailed the Washington Wizards. Tom Thibodeau drew up this sideline out of bounds play in a timeout which resulted in a mid-range jumper from Carlos Boozer. This is a great play as it gives you multiple quick inbound and scoring options.
Last night the Chicago Bull ran this quick hitter post action to start the 4th quarter versus the Washington Wizards. Noah did a great job selling this play dribbling at the pin-down before quickly turning to feed Gibson ducking in. Noah’s quick dribble right put X4 a step off Gibson to allow the easy post.
Thursday night in their win over the Miami Heat, the Chicago Bulls ran this pick & roll play for Luol Deng to start the game. As 3 comes off the pick, 1 relocates to the corner as 4 and 5 space outside the lane. If the defense shifts to take away the drive, look to fire a pass to 1 in the corner and have your bigs screen in on the defense.
Last night in an overtime thriller, without any timeouts and trailing by 2 with just a few seconds left, Tom Thibodeau called out this Stack play for Luol Deng. Deng did an excellent job stepping back to set up his man and leveraging position to beat his man back to the ball for a catch & shoot lay-up.
