How they did what they did: Delfino’s Open Jumper

| October 15, 2010

Category: Play breakdowns


UPDATE: I’ve got the whole video thing going now.  So that’s kind of cool.  This is just the tip of the iceberg my friends.  Here’s the video of the play diagrammed below, so you know what I’m talking about.

Every so often I’ll be diagramming a play from a Bucks game that I thought was particularly effective.  Today’s diagram is from a open Carlos Delfino jumper last night that began with 3:38 to go in the fourth quarter.  He missed the shot ultimately, but the creation of it was very well executed.  For a team that’s been struggling with that sort of thing, it was a relief to see.

Leave some feedback and let me know what you think.

(NOTE: Squiggly lines are dribbles, dotted lines are passes, lines with a line at the end are picks and lines with arrows are cuts.)

About the Author ()

Jeremy Schmidt writes the Milwaukee Bucks blog Bucksketball. He founded it in January of 2009 because he hated his job. It’s like basketball, but with Bucks instead of basket. I know ... I’m sorry. He might come off as a bit negative, but I'm really not so bad. He just wants the Bucks to succeed, so he points out areas where they are coming up short. Someone has got to do it and he's ornery and opinionated enough to take on that task. He isn't sure if this should be in third person or not.

    And when the defenders on those staggered screeners jump out to defend that pass, they cut right to the hole.

    Nice work describing the play. Could you make the diagram smaller though, it’s hard to look at the pic and the descriptive text.

    Looking forward to this in the regular season. The diagram reporting, not Dooling setting up plays.
