San Antonio Spurs fans showed off their smarts in our ongoing basketball quiz series, with more than 42% of participants scoring an 80 or higher on the third test. With grades rising, we decided to retain the multiple-choice format and ditch fill-in-the-blank questions altogether.

For the fourth installment of our brief examinations, Pounders must watch 12 clips and choose which answer matches the technique they saw. Every test gets increasingly challenging, so feel free to check out our basketball vocabulary crash course for a helpful refresher.

Before you get started, here are the answers from part three:

1. 45 Cut

2. Backdoor Cut

3. All of the Above
