FCB: On their way to Berlin (III – Forward In Low Post & Post Beyond The Arc)

Another one of F.C.Barcelona’s weapons is David Andersen. Whenever he combines his strength with the team’s forwards they create a lot of problems to the defenders.

As we can see in the video, in the last game against TAU, Barton went quite often to the low post and Andersen played beyond the three point line. When the defenders helped inside (Barton was posting up against smaller players) Andersen got the advantage by popping to the free throw line or receiving outside.

Being capable of shooting and also of driving against recovery situations or slower players, Andersen creates good options for his team and increases the risks of helping.
