About This Play/Drill

A very similiar set to what the Indiana Pacers ran against the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals the Spurs ran a misdirection play against the Heat in the NBA Finals.  Using the presence of #21 Tim Duncan they made it look like he was getting a cross screen, before #2 Kawhi Leonard turned right back around to set a stagger with #21 Tim Duncan for #20 Manu Ginobili.

  • 1 passes the ball ahead to 2. 1 sprints to the weakside block. While 1 is sprinting to the block 3 criss crosses with him and appears to set a back screen on 5. 2 reverses the ball to 4.

  • After 1 touches the block he makes a sharp cut to run off 3 and 5's stagger screen. 3 turns around and sets a screen on 1 instead of 5. After 3's screen he sprints to the weakside corner. 2 after passing to 4 moves to the other wing.
