Hand Off Fake

Here we have an interesting situation from the Boston Celtics.

They read the defense and get an advantage. They use the same pattern very often in sideline out of bounds plays, and this way they have a different option to score.

Basically they create a clear out for the pointguard to play the one on one. Help side defenders are waiting to defend a pick and roll or off ball screens, and helping against the penetration is difficult.

What a Playoff between Boston and Chicago we have watched…

Have a nice weekend, I’ll keep watching the Spanish Junior Championship, a nice tournament with some of our sport’s future stars…
