A defender’s duty isn't done when their assignment passes out of the dodge; they're done when they gain possession or the shot clock strikes :00.

The best off-ball defenders wait until the :52 expires to exhale. They hunt for 52 seconds. There's always an area to help – and it's usually right on the crease.

Watch Cade van Raaphorst after Justin Guterding passes out of this pick-n-roll. He might not know immediately where his next move is, but he knows it’s not 8 yards below GLE with Guterding. He positions himself to make a play and collapses on Bryan Cole.
