This is what Coach Hipps said about the play:
A nice ATO SLOB set run by the Boston Celtics in Game 2 vs the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
Great for a team with post players who can pass out of the post.
Boston Celtics – Cutback SLOB
3 inbounds, 4 and 5 are stacked up on weak side block.
1 is on strong side block with 2 at nail.
2 sets down screen for 4 to catch at top of key.
Option for 4 to DHO with 2 (not shown).
Primary look is to 5 in short corner after receiving screen from 1.
4 sells down screen for 1, who fakes coming off for shot.
1 rejects screen and backdoor cuts to basket for layup.
Boston Celtics – Stagger BLOB
1 back screens for 2, who dives to basket
5 screens for 1
