Basketball Play - Boston Celtics - Wedge Step Up Ball Screen

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 - 3/1 Middle PNR

Austin Anderson 05/15/2018

Cleveland is at its best when LeBron James creates opportunities for others. Simple actions such as the 3/1 middle pick and roll create opportunities for James (3) to attack downhill. With the personnel Cleveland has, shooters are spaced for kick outs, and Tristan Thompson (5) is put in position for lob opportunities off dribble penetration. See More
