(free) Explain One Play: Stephen Curry in Automatic Split Cuts
The Twitter complaint about Steph screening for role players happens to be true
A list of all Explain One Play articles and videos is at The new Explain One Play index.
More live reaction video from the 2021.1.4 SAC-GSW game. We look at two split cuts, automatic plays in the Kerr offense, and how Stephen Curry both gets and receives screens in the action. The Twitter complaint about Steph screening for role players happens to be true. And I think a good thing. Co-starring Kent Bazemore and Kevon Looney.
Love the sneek peeks btw. The breakdowns make me a smarter fan, and not automatically shout at the Warriors to run Curry off a screen every damn time.
That's very interesting! The Warriors have a motion offense philosophy, so it seems logical for Steph to be a screener. It's beautiful when basketball is played with no roles, like someone as the designated scorer or a pass-only center. Steph's unselfishness is great to see in superstars in today's league.
