In the 2017 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors jumped out to a 3-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Kevin Durant has been the favorite to be the Finals MVP, averaging close to 35 points, on over 50% shooting. When the Warriors need a basket, they love to run their “4-Pop” series, which is a flex action that gets Durant the ball on the move.
Durant (4) begins on the block. When the ball reverses, he sets a flex screen for Klay Thompson. As Steph Curry sets the down screen, the defense is unable to switch due to the difference in size of the two players. Durant simply reads the defense and is able to straight cut, curl, or out cut for a shot.
4-Pop (Back cut read)
If the defense cheats, to try to get through the screen, Durant sets up a back cut, for a dunk!
Here is video of Durant finding success with both of the options listed above:
