This SLOB basketball flare screen play is going to be used for an end of game situation where there are only a few seconds left on the clock. The inbound pass is going to be risky, but if executed the correct way this play should open up a pretty good shot for one of your better shooters. It is important that you have a couple of these kinds of plays in your playbook because you never know when you will need one to get a big basket.
Make sure that your players set good legal screens for each other, but they must be willing to headhunt though on the screens for the play to work. Also, depending on the clock, every offensive player (besides the shooter) should be attacking the offensive glass for a potential tip-in, because offensive tips are very hard to guard against on last-second shot attempts.
