Boston Celtics - Wedge Step Up Ball Screen

Austin Anderson 05/23/2018

In the NBA, wedge ball screens and step up screens are used frequently. A "wedge" is a simple action designed to create separation running into the ball screen. This action keeps the defense moving and uses both sides of the court. Once the step up occurs, there will be drive/kick opportunities, pick/roll, and pick/pop opportunities. Boston perimeter players are very patient when attacking off ball screens and look to make the right play. FMS Blog: Boston Celtics - Spread Ball Screen Offense See More

Cleveland Cavaliers - Point Flares (vs switching)

Doug Brotherton 05/22/2018

In Games 1 and 2 of the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals, the Boston Celtics got a lot of credit for their smooth switches defensively. In games 3 and 4, the Cleveland Cavaliers countered with some basic actions to pick on the switching defense. Their most effective action was their "Point Flares," with LeBron James as the passer from the middle of the floor. The corner to wing flare allows the screener to seal and cut to the rim, for a pass over the top. This set gave the Celtics fits, resulting in multiple layups for Cleveland. See More
