            he seven Wade-James pick-and-rolls generated 13 points on seven trips downcourt -- good for 185.7 points per 100 possessions.

            And they were exquisitely executed. In fact, two of the possessions yielded buckets for guys other than Wade or James. On the first, the Trail Blazers converged on Wade as he turned the corner and glided into the paint, so Wade kicked the ball out to Chris Bosh, who was spotted up to the left. Two points.

            A few minutes before halftime, Wade split Wes Matthews and Gerald Wallace, and delivered another kickout -- this time to Chalmers, whom Andre Miller left to help out on the Wade-James action. Three points.

            Some of these sets against Portland didn't come out of the Heat's elbow action with James playing the 4, but were garden-variety top-of-the-floor numbers. A couple of others looked identical to the three left-side actions against the Bulls.

            But on two possessions in the first half, the Heat went small -- and LeBron James rolled to the hoop for four of his easiest half-court points of the season. The first set was Chicago redux: Wade turned down the screen to drive baseline. Wallace shaded LeBron as he sank low to ensure Wade didn't get to the rim, so Wade shuttled the ball over to LeBron.

            Ball-fake, dribble, layup.

            The next LeBron James roll occurred after he pasted Matthews on the screen. With Matthews on the wrong side of LeBron after the switch, all it took was a simple bounce pass into the lane from Wade. LeBron didn't even need a dribble -- he simply collected the ball and laid it in, as Marcus Camby couldn't contest quickly enough.

            Two nights later, the Heat shook the monkey off their back against the Lakers. Remember the decisive possession? A high screen from James for Wade.

            Against the Spurs, one of the Heat's best-looking sets came in an ATO, or after-timeout situation (see the 1:19 mark). Wade drew Richard Jefferson on the switch, pump-faked, got Jefferson in the air, drained the shot, and-one.

            All in all, the Heat have run 14 James-Wade pick-and-rolls in their past six games. They've recorded baskets on 11 of those 14 possessions for a total of 25 points. (I'm counting the Wade miss and immediate putback because his capacity to collect his own shot was a direct result of the pick-and-roll.) That's a 78.6 percent success rate and 178.6 points per 100 possessions.

            It's absurd to believe the Heat would score upward of 150 points if they ran a Wade-James pick-and-roll several dozen times per game, but why does it seem more likely you'll see a porpoise swimming alongside a jet ski in Biscayne Bay than the Heat run an action that has devastating implications for the defense? Since that pivotal drive in the Lakers game, the Heat have run exactly two James ball screens for Wade in two games -- zero in a loss against the Thunder.
            Why are the Heat not utilizing this? Back in August we all drooled at the theoretical dominance of such a set play, yet for whatever reason they didn't think it was a good idea until March, and then they don't use at all against the Thunder when they were ice cold from range...

            maybe it is part of their diabolical plan to hide their best plays until the playoffs?

            • The reason you don't pick and roll with two guys that are the same size is because defenders can just switch on any screen. If they try to do that in the playoffs against Boston as their go to offensive play, they'll fail.

                Except LeBron James isn't the same size... He is 6'8" 250 pounds and if you switch a SG on him, you lose almost every time. Did you see what he did to Kobe on that screen in the Lakers game?

                • Hedo just bricked two free throws that would have iced the game. Jesus. He was having such a beast game also, almost a triple double. 5.7 seconds left to win this tied game now.

                          are you implying Kobe can't guard Lebron?? -_-


                          Anyways, Look at how good Lebron good can be without having to worry about other things such as setting up teammates etc. Probably a glimpse of how he would've been as a knick.

                          Too bad we're watching his prime years getting wasted.

                              I was referring to the play where LeBron leveled him on the screen and Wade got to the rim with ease.

                              So 26-7-7 is wasting your prime years? Interesting... He could have been a 30-9-9 guy in New York I suppose, but LeBron is only going to become more and more efficient once he adjusts to not having to play the roll of "Hero." He is just starting to realize his potential as an off the ball player.
