Who is being named again today? Explain in detail the tactical arrangements of the NBA's "roll call" and anti-roll call
(Text/Los Angeles Vansidy)
The Los Angeles Clippers formed a luxury roster but had a poor record, and the newcomer Harden was questioned because he was slow to move sideways and poor defense, so he was targeted by the opponent, and the Nuggets' Reggie Jackson and the Warriors' Curry named Harden at the last moment to help the team win.
In the follow-up game, the Clippers used Leonard to name Curry, targeting Curry's Warriors' defensive leaks, helping the Clippers defeat the Warriors and take revenge.
It is not difficult to see that the roll call tactic has now become a regular tactic for NBA teams, and it is not uncommon.
Roll call is a visual expression of misplaced punishment for the opponent's defensive loopholes, through tactical rotation, resulting in small fights, big hits, small, fast and slow, big weights hit light weights, shooters target players with narrow defensive ranges and slow movements, and strong offense hits poor defense. And the most common and effective roll call tactic is to block and dismantle.
The original intention of the pick-and-roll tactic was to create misalignment opportunities by covering around teammates. From the Utah duo of Karl Malone and Stockton, pick-and-roll tactics have been the nightmare of big centers. O'Neill and Yao Ming have all made mistakes in this.
With the development of the small ball era, the roll call is more abundant and the frequency of use is increasing.
There are many cases, such as during the "Double Warriors" Finals, Curry named the Cavaliers' Love Medallion, which is a typical small fight, and James named Curry, which is a typical big fight.
Superstar center Jokic was named by Paul and Curry in the playoffs, and once lost badly.
In the 23 season playoffs, Lakers Ham named Curry of the Warriors with James + three guards in turn, which is a typical representative of strong offense and poor defense.
Coaches like Kerr, Lue, and Ham are all good at naming names.
At this stage, Reggie and Curry's roll call against Harden is a typical fast and slow one, while Leonard's roll call on Curry is one of big and small, with strong offense and poor defense.
The roll call tactic is so easy to use, so what is the way to crack it?
Now there are ways to defend and dismantle: squeeze (grab in front of the screener), pass through (run between the screener and the defensive screener), bypass (run between the defender and the defensive screener), change the defense, delay (including big delays and small delays), pinch ball carrier, inside sink and contraction, and so on.
The effectiveness of roll call tactics is generally reflected in two aspects:
1. When the opponent adopts the change of defense, it will produce an obvious dislocation effect;
2. When the opponent uses squeezing cover + sinking inside, it will have the effect of the ball carrier naming the inside.
Here's an interesting question: Since naming Harden is so "cool", why did Reggie and Curry not use it until the fourth quarter?
It's actually quite simple, because against the Clippers, they can call on big center Zubac in regular time, which is more effective than calling out Harden.
So how to prevent roll call? In fact, it is to optimize the anti-blocking mode.
1. Change the guard in advance. This is a trick that many teams with defensive holes will think of.
Defenders like Curry and Harden who may be named will have to stand farther away from the callers.
When the defender of the named person moves in the direction of the ball carrier and wants to create a situation where the ball carrier is called, the named person does not run with the defender, but runs with the teammate, and the named person goes to make up for the defender of the teammate and realizes the change of defense.
For example, in the picture below, in order to protect Aldridge of the Nets and avoid being named by the opponent, Mills changed the defense in advance to avoid a roll call
2. Change the guard afterwards.
When the change of defense causes a roll call, take advantage of the opponent's unstable foothold and quickly be replaced by other teammates.
3. Pinch attack, implement oppressive defense on the ball carrier, disrupt its rhythm, and force its pass.
4. Delay, that is, when the blocking occurs, the defender of the screen goes up to contain the dribble route of the ball carrier, so that his small defender can bypass or squeeze through the cover to re-match the ball carrier, and then go back to find the offensive player who was originally in his position.
