The blur screen is an effective way to create a double gap in the defense. The pass and cut movement can create a temporary window for the basketball to attack into the heart of the defense. During the Shaka Smart years at Virginia Commenwealth, he used the blur screen as a secondary transition action. Once the ball is swung from slot to slot, the trailer then passes to the wing followed by a cut to ball side corner. This cutting action now opens a temporary double gap for the basketball to attack the elbow. See video below!
Four Out Running Lanes:
The "Swing Blur" Action would occur on a possession in which no pitch ahead was made along the sidelines or to the rim runner.
The ball handler "settles" into the slot and the trailer "settles" in the opposite slot.
