About This Play/Drill

The Spurs ran this ATO at the end of the first half, of a pivotal Game 5, in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. The play resulted in an easy layup for Kawhi Leonard. It was a great design by Popovich. The counter to their elevator set is colored by the BLUE lines. It was a back screen by the 5, which got Kawhi the easy two points.
