What is the deal with the moving screens this year?  I watched Gortat look like a pulling offensive lineman from the NFL against the Celtics the other night.  The Cavs had moving screen after moving screen against the Celtics on Sunday.  It makes watching the game unbearable.  Are the refs blind?  What is going on????

The NBA turns a blind eye to this because this is a huge part of the modern 3 point meme chucking playstyle, which people find enjoyable.

Itís generally okay to move into a guy as long as it isnít with too much force and youíre squared up more or less.  Iím fine with it.

Last year they called them, this year they don't.

Not totally related, but Monroe sets a helluva screen.

Yeah, the Cavs are great at the moving screen. They did it in the playoffs last year quite a bit.
San Antonio used to be the best at it.

Don't usually get upset at NBA refs anymore. Sometimes they call the game like a street ball game letting most things pass. I guess it's to speed up the game.

One thing they are fairly consistent about is calling foul if a player is hit on the elbow or forearm when shooting a shot in the open court.

The best news is that refs have cut way down on calling the crash-through-the-middle-and-pray-the-ref-bails-you-out shots like Isaiah loved to take.

Gortat must have dirt on all the refs in this league. I do not think I have ever seen him with a legit screen. AND, with him, they are not even subtle.

KG was also awesome at it.

I don't think I've seen KG set a legal screen in his entire Celtics tenure. Nothing egregious, but he'd always lean into the guy that he's picking.

True. Plus I've noticed quite a few instances this season of a Celtics big, such as Horford or Baynes or Theis, using what looks like a seal-off or boxout (but is basically a moving screen) when they see a teammate (such as Kyrie) taking the ball to the hoop. I mean, you're not supposed to be able to box out or seal off a guy until a shot has gone up.

Basically if you aren't lowering a shoulder into someone or trying to hipcheck them, you can get away with moving screens. It not like Horford and Baynes doesn't do it a ton. And Brown and Tatum use a ton of arm in pushing off while setting picks. No biggie as long as the refs are calling it the same way for both teams in a game.
