Minnesota Timberwolves SLOB From Box Set

The Minnesota Timberwolves often run this side inbounds play. This is an extension of head coach Rick Adelman's corner offense. The corner offense requires the post players to make good decisions with the basketball.


The play starts out in a box set.

1 sets a down screen for 5. 2 passes to 5 on the elbow.

As soon as 5 receives the pass, 1 sets a backscreen for 2. 3 goes to the perimeter for spacing purposes.


If 2 is not open, 5 makes a pass to 1. 5 can either set a ball screen or slide down to the block for a post up opportunity.
