The Boston Celtics ran 3 end of game sideline out plays with 18 seconds left in a game vs Houston Rockets on 12/28/17. With a defensive foul and a few offensive fouls drawn, the Celtics were able to get 3 possessions late in the game. This is the 3rd SLOB they ran that 3.5 seconds. This is an excellent end of game set that gets a quick 2 when the defense may be set to better defend the 3. It's ideal for getting a quick 2 and immediately fouling. The defending team may be focused on a particular player or defending the 3 point shot.
With the post player situated on the weak side and the point guard at the nail of thefree throw line, the two curl each other, with Irving setting a screen for Horford to approach the strong side block.
The two guards filling the low blocks clear out and prepare for the rebound opportunities.
