Dallas Mavericks could use more Spain pick and roll

The Phoenix Suns have also used Spain pick and roll to create open looks for their three stars. Here Chris Paul takes the Deandre Ayton screen with Devin Booker then screening Ayton’s defender, JaVale McGee. The result is an and-one layup for CP3 that all but eliminates the Denver Nuggets in Game 4.

The Mavs could benefit from this added wrinkle. It is a way to free the roll man for easy scores. A lot of NBA teams run it, but the Suns have used it as another counter to keep the defense guessing in their run to the Western Conference Finals.

The Dallas Mavericks will have a new president of basketball operations, head coach, and talent surround Luka Doncic next season. They should enter the year looking to make their offense more diverse and complex. Luka is a generational superstar that is going to thrive in any system. Finding ways to get open looks for his teammates should be a key for the new coach. The Mavs could jump back to the top in offensive rating by adding a few wrinkles this offseason.
