STUDENTS – Golden State Warriors “Dummy” Out Of Bounds Play (VIDEO)

The Golden State Warriors are the most exciting and prolific offensive team in the NBA this season. They’ve especially made a killing on five-man passing, spacing, and three-point shooting, but more generally, quick offense. This also translates to their mentality in out of bounds situations.

For this look, Stephen Curry (best passer) inbounds the ball with three people lined up around the free throw line area. One person (usually Andre Iguodala or Harrison Barnes) spots in the opposite corner of the ball. Curry does a great job of surveying the entire floor, and because of positioning, personnel, and the simple fact that defenses aren’t always prepared to defend the inbounds pass right away, he’s more than often able to make a quick pass behind the defense to that opposite corner to ignite some action.

The Warriors don’t score every time on this look in the tape, but with the defense so off guard it helps to create a good initial drive that leads to a kick-out, or just a great look at a corner three. 

That’s just a fragment of what the Warriors do in terms of jump starting their offensive attack, and just more examples of how this team has committed to passing, spacing, and quick offense.
