Set run by the Boston Celtics.
This is a counter out of the Boston Celtics “Swing” series that they’ve been running at the 2017 NBA Summer League.
Rather than 2 passing to 4 and receiving a back-screen from 5 for a shuffle screen, 2 dribbles at 4 and 4 back-cuts to the basket for a post-up.
After 4 receives the ball on the block, 5 sets a back-screen for 2.
2 cuts to the basket looking for a drop pass from 4 for a layup.
The point of the post is not that you have to take the play as is.
The hope is that you can take parts of this to include with what you do, or that this will stimulate thinking and discussion among your staff to find ways to enhance your current system.
