New Post at Hickory High on Miami’s Small Ball Lineup

Go check out how putting Lebron at center gets open shots for everyone.

On this first play Lebron and Wade execute a dribble handoff, which acts similarly to a pick-and-roll. The Celtics switch assignments and Mickael Pietrus follows Lebron as he rolls to the hoop. Lebron’s roll attracts KG’s attention, but that leaves the Celtics shorthanded on the weak side of the floor. When Shane Battier sets a screen for Mike Miller, nobody is left to help out, and Miller gets a wide open three.
