The Passing Game, Vol. 1: John Wall, Paul Millsap


Welcome to The Passing Game, where we take the time to recognize and glorify the dimes being thrown all around us.

First, from last night’s NBA action, we have John Wall.

Wall caught this outlet free throw line extended and took one dribble before drifting a perfect leading bounce pass to Otto Porter for a layup. Talk about quick offense. Wall’s placement on the bounce pass really was perfection. If he doesn’t hit Porter in stride, he doesn’t get a direct drive for the layup.

Big men are always eligible for The Passing Game. Paul Millsap, playing small forward for the Hawks in this clip and running some two-man game with Al Horford, lobbed a perfect overhead hook pass to Horford on the roll. The pass from Millsap was so precise it turned into an alley-oop for Horford.
