About This Play/Drill

This set originally comes from the San Antonio Spurs and Gregg Popovich. Originally a set designed to get Tim Duncan an open jumper by setting a down screen and allowing him to catch at the elbow. This set has been adapted by this years Golden State Warriors, the 2013-14 Miami Heat & this years Philadelphia 76ers! This set is great if you have a stretch 4 or a 4 man who can handle and pass well, and a big man who can shoot it. The Heat ran a nice counter out of it for Ray Allen, after he set the down screen for Bosh, he would come off a baseline screen to look for a shot.
