Here are 3 options from the Dallas Mavericks to get Dirk Nowitzki a shot on a pick & pop. In option 1, the ball is reversed through Nowitzki to 3 on the right side of the floor. Nowitzki sets a ball-screen for 3 and pops for a shot. In option 2, 5 sets a ball-screen for 1 to drive baseline. 5 rolls and Nowitzki replaces 5. In option 3, Nowitzki flips the ball-screen for 3 so that he can drive baseline. Nowitzki pops towards the elbow for a shot.
- 1 dribbles up the left side of the floor then passes to 4 (Nowitzki) trailing the play.
4 then reverses the ball to 3.
- 4 follows the pass and sets a ball-screen for 3.
3 drives to the lane looking to pas to 5 stepping toward the basket or 4 on the roll/pop.
- 1 dribbles up the left side of the floor and instead of passing to 4 he takes a ball-screen from 5.
1 attacks the baseline looking to pass to 5 on the roll, 4 filling behind the screen, or 2 sliding to the corner.
- In this option, 4 sets the screen on the opposite side as in option 1.
3 drives toward the baseline again looking for 4 on the roll, 5 stepping toward the basket, and 2 in the opposite corner.
