Jrue Holiday's Defensive Highlights for the Bucks during the 2021 NBA Playoffs. Some of these clips you have to watch multiple times or re-watch in slow motion to appreciate his attention to detail on the defensive end. In fact, some of these possessions don't end in a Holiday steal, block, contest, or even a MISS by his opponent. Sometimes it's his positioning relative to his teammates or effort that deems itself worthy defense. Take the 1st possession for example. Watch how Holiday immediately stunts back at Collins once he sees Young in the air trying to feather a pass back and abandons his attempt to get back on Young. You'll appreciate it more in 0.25x speed.

- Great Synergy with Brook Lopez in pick-and-roll situations and isolation. He knows when to funnel his man to Lopez and when to rotate off in order to cut off passing angles (Watch Lopez dap up Holiday at 6:32 after Lopez records the block)
- Always active with his hands on defense and great at anticipating where the ball will be
- Doesn't makes gambles that throttle his defensive positioning, and insteads puts himself in a position to snatch the ball away.
- Fantastic lateral quickness in isolation and also nimble when navigating around screens.
- Makes a conceited effort to not get caught on the ball-screen
- Lets the ball-handler feel pressure without fouling
- Does his absolute beast to make it tough for the offensive player during isolation despite only standing 6'3"

You know he's respected when opposing players don't flop on his steals and blocks. They just accept he got it cleanly. Like his reputation precedes him. They don't complain which is weird to see when against any other defender many of these stars flail their arms or do that "whiplash" thing with their head flying back yelling "hey" after getting blocked or stripped.

All people care about are man defense, but dont realize that that's such a small part of defense.. Jrue is pretty good at man defense, but even better at everything else besides rim protection.

The Nets have the best offensive big-3 in the NBA and the Bucks have the best defensive big-3 in the NBA. Only thing is that the Bucks big-3 are really good offensively and will get better chemistry every year while the Nets are good defensively and not gonna get better in that part of the game.

Jrue understands that even if you're beat off the dribble, the offensive player must be on their way to the help defense. Also, even if you're beat off the dribble and the offensive player is now the job of the help defense, as a defensive player, you must not fall asleep and anticipate drop-off or cross-court passes.

Wow he is actually massive and strong and very relentless. It's hard to go around him coz he is strong, tall, long, takes lots of space yet He goes where ever you go. He is very underrated and he is a sleeper. You dont think much of him but he is silently intimidating the opposing players. He ripped booker and passed the ball for a lob dunk for giannis. I'm pretty sure he wrecked havoc to the suns that never made to the stats yet really harrassed them that they could not get off their offense

@Usman Akhtar of course, steph is top 5, u couls substitute any of those 5. Im not saying jru is number 1, im saying i think hes sitting number 5 (out of the top 5). I would only put cp3, steph, lillard, ahead. Im not putting kyrie cause hes always hurt or sitting out. Westbrook folds like a cheap suit in the playoffs. I can throw luka in there maybe (i still think jru clamps him too).

It’s so many mistake I see by the offense. If you going to gather cuff the ball. Trae like to use the floater so he ride the right side of his hip & Lopez to help. That’s why Capela really is a liability. Her can’t shoot. Running picks by the sideline is worse out bounds is a third defender. If you going run a pick go towards the basketball not sideline to sideline. It’s run behind you & steel the ball. You have play with your off hand against Holiday until the refs call it!

I've realized that a lot of times when going over the top on screens, Jrue would almost make himself vertical to minimize the area of contact with the screener. By being vertical he also reduces the chances of running into the ball handler and he is able to explode out of that position to recover onto the ball handler or get in front of the roll/pop man on a switch. He also times the "being vertical" moment very well so that he doesn't get his back knocked loose by the screen and he has ample time to recover to the ball.
@John Lo he was a goddamn beast on defense the whole olympics a lot of that’s gonna go unnoticed tho….he had so many steals and disruptions and clamped mills and fournier
John Lo
John Lo Πριν μήνα
@ALLIGATOR EATER Absolutely, great call. I believe Jrue’s gonna be key for Team USA on the defensive end if they want to win gold.
@John Lo good eye and analysis for sure….on top of that his vertical position makes it seem like he’s backing off making the driver think it’s safe to put the ball in a vulnerable position allowing him to get those cheeky strips….a lot of deception in his game he’s so top tier
John Lo
John Lo Πριν μήνα
@ALLIGATOR EATER Media only see statistics and never analyze play by play (prolly cuz they really don’t have the time to watch every game in detail). Still, they act like they know everything by just looking at statistics and highlights. Also about Jrue, I also see him often times go vertical like he does on the screens when he is guarding a drive or if he’s on the verge getting called for a blocking foul. But he will backpedal while being vertical so that even if the ball handler makes contact with him and he’s in an illegal defensive position, the back pedal and verticality makes it look like there’s nothing there. Then he has such quick and precise hands, he just strips the ball out of the player’s hands from this position. I believe he did this on Devin Booker in the Finals. In real time I thought it was such a clean strip, but in slow mo I could definitely see that Jrue was in an illegal defensive position and it should’ve been a blocking foul. But Jrue’s back pedaling and verticality just makes it look so clean. That really impressed me a lot.
i noticed the same bc i was wondering how he was able to completely avoid screens while going OVER them and even still beating the ball handler to position, often causing turnovers…unbelievable timing, footwork, intuition, creativity, and ridiculous skill. Out of all his defensive strongpoints, this stands out to me the most. Casuals don’t notice this and the media doesn’t analyze/credit this unfortunately
John Lo
John Lo Πριν μήνα
3:16 I love this possession. First goes over the top on the sideline ball screen, probably a team defensive scheme with the intention to trap sideline. You can see Jrue throwing his arms out into the passing lane as John Collins begins his roll to prevent Trae Young from dumping off a pocket pass to the roll man. Now on offense, often times teams are taught to hit the roll man on his cut with a swing, which is probably why Trae Young passed the ball to the corner. This allows a better angle to hit the roll man (John Collins). However, Jrue sees this and immediately switches and full sprints to recover to the roll man. I will say that I do think he was a bit late recovering, and Bogi should've touch passed it to John Collins immediately (lead the pass so it doesn't get picked off by the trailing Jrue) then they would've had a floater or a lob to Capela. But Brook Lopez was in the right spot on the help side and he could've very likely gotten a hand on the ball because of his length. Maybe that's why Bogi didn't pass it. Good close out from PJ also made the passing angle harder to find. Anyways, Jrue recovers, the ball gets swung out to Huerter at the top of the key and Middleton gets beat on the close out. Jrue is now in the paint because he switched onto Collins. He recognized Middleton getting beat, and the first thing he does is anticipate the drive and he steps in front of Huerter direct driving lane to take a charge. You can see his stance getting low and square and his arms reaching for his crotch. But Huerter fades away to the left to get more space for the floater (you can see this working on Middleton since he ended up jumping way outside of where Huerter was). Jrue recognized this so quickly, and this accredits his athleticism and reaction time, he exploded out of his "charge stance" and not only contested but also blocked Huerter's floater. This was such an impressive possession for Jrue as a defender.
