The Boston Celtics ran 3 consecutive end of game SLOB plays with 18 seconds left in a game vs the 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 2nd SLOB they ran that only burned a little over 4 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.

This End of Game sideline out set began with Jayson Tatum, the eventual scorer throwing in. As all of us would assume, the go to man here would be #11 Kyrie Irving who was isolated across court up high. Another decoy is #12 Terry Rozier, who is set up to run off a stagger screen from the far corner with #36 Marcus Smart and #42 Al Horford. #36 cut under the basket to catch a pass with his back to the basket in the short corner as #11 approaches the ball as well.
Out of the post, the next expected action is a pass out to #11 Irving from the inbounder. Instead, #11 sets a screen for #0 Tatum who dives down the lane for an easy dunk.
