Led by Steve Kerr and his staff, Dub Nation uses a lot of 5 out spacing to get into their various reads and actions. This set commonly known as Delay involves screening actions on each side of the floor. The 5 at the top of the key has the option to pass or handoff to either wing and execute a wing ballscreen. The two keys here are that the guards set hard screens to allow an easier catch and that the 5 has their back pointed towards the paint a screen opposed to the sideline. These details help ensure the success of the play. Of course the play wouldn’t be complete without legitimate weakside screening to occupy the help defense.
