Hayward’s Game-Winner Vs. Cavs

Multiple screens free your talented scorer coming to the top of the set to create a buzzer-beating open jumper

WHY USE IT
Gordon Hayward of the Utah Jazz is a talented player who has the ability to put the ball on the floor and shoot. Run this play for your team’s best player.

SET UP
The shooter (3) is at the free-throw line. The ball is being inbounded from the left hash mark.

HOW TO PLAY
3 moves low and sets a screen for the weak-side lane-line player (1) coming high. 2 moves from the weak corner to the strong one [1]. 1 comes off the screen and sets a screen for 4 moving away from the ball. 4 then sets a screen for 3, who pops high. The inbound pass goes from 5 to 3 [2]. If there are a couple seconds on the clock, 4 spins and sets a ball screen for 3. 3 takes a couple dribbles into his shot and drills the game winning basket as 4 rolls to the hoop and 1 moves high. If 3 spots 4 open on the roll, 3 has the option to make the pass [3].

TECHNIQUE
4 is the key as he sets the screen to get 3 free, then immediately spins and executes an on-ball screen. 4 needs to get a solid base and not push from one screen to the next so to avoid the offensive foul.
