Micah Shrewsberry Boston Celtics Summer League BLOB Play – BLOB Stagger
2 starts with the ball out of bounds. The Celtics put the best shooter at the top of the key for this play. The play starts with 4 screening for 3. 3 cuts to the basket hard looking to get an easy lay-up if possible. If 3 isn’t open at the rim, 4 steps out to the 3-point line and gets the inbounds pass from 2. Once 4 has the ball, 2 steps inbounds just inside the 3-point line. 4 dribbles towards 1 on the left wing and gives the ball to 1 on a dribble hand-off. 1 will then dribble towards the top of the key. With all of the open space dribbling right, 1 can look to get into the middle of the floor and score. At the same time, 4 and 2 move towards the rim to set a staggered screen for 3 under the basket. 3 cuts out to the left wing for a shot.
