Boston Celtics - Wedge Step

Guard sets a cross screen on the ball screener's defender to prevent a hard hedge or trap by the defense. Following the balls creen and hit ahead pass, a step up screen for the guard is set to attack downhill. This is a great set that uses the defenses help side positioning against them.

Quick hitter from the Celtics playbook. A drag screen during the secondary break takes place while a cross screen for the post occurs under the rim. Afterwards the drag screener will pindown for the cross screener to get a shot from 3. It's important for the weak side corner to be filled to prevent help on the down screen. If there isn't a shot, 3 receives a ball screen from 5 to attack with the floor spread. FMS Blog: Boston Celtics - Keeping it Simple with Spread Offense See More

Boston Celtics - Delay Floppy

This set comes from Boston's 5-Out Delay series. The celtics start with a pass to the trailer followed by a scoring cut to the rim. Next, the cutter has the option to sprint off of the double or single screen. The trailer will pass to either shooter and follow with a ball screen, where the scorer can attack off of the catch.

Cleveland Cavaliers - Floppy BLOB

KJ Smith 05/14/2018

The inbounding version of the popular half court Floppy set involves simple screening action at the elbow. The shooters are free to sprint out for jumpshots, curl to the rim or even backdoor cut straight to the basket. The key to this set is that no matter what the guards decide to do as far as cutting, all four of these spots are filled once the play has finished. See More
