About This Play/Drill

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.
