Sixers-Celtics Game 2 Video Breakdown at Hickory High

Head over to Hickory-High.com to see how the Sixers defended the Celtics late in game two.

After Holiday got burned on that three-pointer, he wouldn’t lose sight of Allen again. On the next two Boston possessions, they tried to get Allen clean looks by running him off screens. Holiday did an excellent job of shooting the gaps instead of following Allen around the screens. Instead of continuing on his normal path, Allen would usually fade away from a defender that shot the gap, but he couldn’t on these plays because of the location of the screen and bad passing angle for Rondo. Video of Holiday’s great defensive effort is below.

New Post on Bulls-76ers Game 2 at Hickory High

Go check out the new video breakdown of Philly’s Game 2 dominance over Chicago.

A few possessions later, the Sixers had the ball and ran something the Bulls had seen before. Andre Iguodala initiates the offense, and Lou Williams looks like he’s setting up for a slip screen pick-and-pop. After Williams slips the screen, Lavoy Allen sets a screen as Williams curls to the basket. Taj Gibson is concerned with Iguodala off the dribble and Luol Deng stays attached to Thaddeus Young underneath the basket. Neither of them are able to help as Iguodala shows off his passing ability with an alley oop to Williams.

Go check out why that play should be familiar to Chicago.

Andre Iguodala Cements His All Star Spot


It can be tough for defensive-minded players to get accolades, especially if they aren’t accumulating blocks and steals at a league leading pace.  However, Andre Iguodala has gained some All-Star momentum this season on the strength of his defensive play.  This year, any small forward going against Iguodala has turned into Devin Ebanks.  By shutting down Kobe Bryant in crunch time on Monday night, Iguodala strengthened his All Star candidacy with a signature moment.  Let’s take a look at three minutes of hell for Kobe Bryant… Continue reading
