New Post at Bullets Forever on John Wall and the Pick and Roll vs. Milwaukee and Indiana

There’s a lot more over there,  so go check it out!

On Monday night versus the Bucks, Wall saw the same defense over and over when he ran the pick-and-roll. Milwaukee decided to have Wall’s defender fight over the top of the screen and the screener’s man play far away from the ball, daring Wall to settle for the jumper. Although Wall didn’t score on a single pick-and-roll all night, his process was good. He didn’t fall into the trap of taking jumpers and instead attacked the help defender with reckless abandon. On his pick-and-roll possessions, only one of his shots was from outside of the lane. His layups didn’t drop this time, but it’s usually good when Wall gets to the hoop. Among point guards, he ranks near the top when it comes to finishing at the rim (62 percent) and drawing fouls (0.45 free throws per shot attempt). The video below shows how Milwaukee defended Wall and the resulting attacking drives.
