Stepping Up Their Game: Read TNT NBA analyst Kenny Smith's take on players to watch in the 2005 NBA Finals.
With a true concept of "team" basketball, Detroit stepped up in the Finals and captured the title in five games.
Chauncey Billups (1) then uses another Ben Wallace (3) ball-screen to reverse back towards the middle, while Tayshaun Prince (22) cuts across the baseline to the left side and Richard Hamilton (32) uses another Mehmet Okur (13) screen and cuts back up to the left wing.
All of the movement back towards the left-side of the floor has left the weak-side exposed. Ben Wallace (3) rolls to the weak-side and Billups (1) hits him with a pass for the open jump shot.
