Playing Inside

Here we have a nice inside move and also a defense reading situation.

First we see one of the best inside players in the Spanish LEB Gold, Ricardo Guillén,from Los Barrios (they have reached the Final Four, winning a playoff without court advantage) with ACB experience, receiving in the low post and making one of his favourite moves, spin towards baseline and pivot to get the best position to score.

In the second play, the defenders double him and he reacts by finding the pass for his teammate, who has cut towards the basket. He receives and gets the foul.

Once again, we realize how important it is not only to feed the post, but also to play without the ball when he's got it.
