Here is a set play that was run numerous times in the Spurs second game vs. the Golden State Warriors last night. This play starts out of a 3-out 2-in set and quickly develops into a set that gives you a screen and roll option on the strong side and a stagger screen on the weak side. This play is effective because the strong side ball screen forces the defenders of 5 or 3 on the weak side to be in help and will allow either 5 or 3 to slip to the basket after setting their screen.
1 dribbles at 2, 2 loops around 4 and pops up to the top of key.
4 sprits to set a back screen for 2. 2 cuts hard to the post. 1 looks to hit 2 on the roll. If 2 has a size advantage he can looks to post his man.
Immediately after setting his back screen, 4 will ball screen for 1 and then roll. As the ball screen occurs on the strong side, 5 and 3 set a stagger screen for 2 who is popping out to the wing. After setting the screen 5 will duck in and 3 will pop to the corner.
