About This Play/Drill

Here is a set that is run often by the San Antonio Spurs. This play is great to because it gives Tony Parker the opportunity to create off a ball screen, an option for DeJuan Blair rolling into the post, and an option for a 3 pointer from Danny Green while his man is giving help on either the roll or the post flash.

  • 1 dribbles at 3. 3 loops around 5 and cuts up to replace 1. 1 throws to 3.

  • After passing to 3, 1 cuts to the weak side rail off screens from 5, 2, and 4. 3 passes to 1.

  • 5 sets a screen for 2, 2 cuts off the screen awaiting a reversal pass for a 3 pointer. 4 then sets a ball screen for 1 and then rolls. As 4 rolls, 5 cuts hard to the high post. We want to look to hit 3 for a three pointer if his man is helping on the roll or on the post flash. 5 can also screen 3's defender depending on how low he is.
