The Passing Game, Vol. 10: Ball moves faster than man


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

Here was some great passing from over the weekend.

The Grizzlies did a great job of beating Miami’s exaggerating defense with the pass to get a lay up. Mike Conley drew a second defender on a corner drive, which made it advantage offense for Memphis. Conley hit a trailing Marc Gasol who made the most important swing pass right to Matt Barnes in the corner, who finds Zac Randolph inside for an easy bucket because the Heat are out of position and couldn’t move faster than the ball.

Great passers are most often ambidextrous, as is Steph Curry, who threads the needle between to defenders to Andre Iguodala in transition. 

The Suns execute a double alley-oop with the extra pass made by Eric Bledsoe mid-air to Jon Leuer for the lob.

Nothing like Kevin Love and LeBron James being able to score on made baskets without needing a dribble.
