Elite Hoops Playset: Boston/UCLA

Posted by Aj Holland | Monday, January 16, 2017 | Category: |

In the second half against the Houston Rockets, the Celtics made the decision that they wanted to make the opposing 3 man have to defend a ball screen which is not done very often. Because this is an action that is not used often, players are not comfortable defending it and sometimes do not even know exactly how to defend this action. One challenge of this play is having a strong enough PG to be able to handle the pressure of a possible trap are strong defensive wing.


Play begins with P2 running off of a UCLA cut while P1 dribbles to the wing. P3 then immediately sets a ball screen on P1 looking for the roll pass from P5. If not open, P4 sets a down screen for P2 curling for a jumper.
