Dallas Mavericks 52 High X

Rick Carlisle ran this play a few years ago with the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA World Championship run. Dirk (4) sprinted to the opposite corner so if X4 sank in to help on the roll (by 5), 3 could look to throw back to Dirk for a corner 3-pointer. If you are afraid that your 4 could ruin the timing of the play I would recommend shifting him to the same corner he is already on the side of.

This is one of my favorite sideline out of bounds plays that the Boston Celtics ran quite a bit while under the direction of Doc Rivers. This is a simple play that teams at all levels should be able to execute.
