In this video, Raymond Felton moves towards the blocks to set a screen for Carmelo Anthony to set-up an isolation situation on Luol Deng.  Carlos Boozer tip toes towards Anthony for the double team but never commits while Anthony places Deng on his back deep, near the baseline.  Similar to how Michael Jordan utilized the fadeaway, Anthony gives Deng a quick fake to his right before spinning hard for a fadeaway jumper over his left shoulder.  Remember, Deng was a member of the NBA All-Defensive Second Team in 2012.
