Cartier Martin Season Review at Bullets Forever

Go check out the video breakdown of 10-day contract All Star Cartier Martin.

Martin was also very effective coming off screens, averaging 1.18 points per possession. His shots in these situations almost always came from a variation on a play out of the horns set that was discussed earlier in the season. The Wizards frequently used Martin as a screener to get Nene or Kevin Seraphin post position, as shown in this video. But Martin can also pop to the top of the key on these plays to get an open shot. The video below shows how he used the double screen to get open shots.

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.

New Post on Bullets Forever Breaking Down the Wizards’ Win Streak

Go check it out!

For the Wizards this year, Singleton has excelled as a screener in the pick-and-roll. He is averaging 1.09 points per possession as the roll-man, a number that would rank around the top 30 in the NBA if he had enough possessions to qualify. The majority of these possessions involve him popping out for a jumper instead of rolling to the hoop.
