format Looking for a Link to a Screenplay With a Friendly Basketball Game

I'm writing a story in which the protagonist is playing a 3 on 3 pickup game with friends. The point of the scene is the interaction between the characters with the game as a backdrop. There will be lots of trash talk and ball busting. I'm looking for a link to a screenplay with a similar(ish) scene. I have tried to locate screenplays for White Men Can't Jump, Streetball, Streetballers, Crossover, Above the Rim, He Got Game, etc. to no avail. I have found transcriptions of many of these, but that doesn't help. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
 
Solution
Thank you, i.t. I have both of those. I am hoping to locate a scene where a group of friends are just playing for fun and busting each others' balls. I know I have seen similar scenes in a number of films, but can't think of any at the moment. If I could just find an actual copy of the screenplay for White Men Can't Jump, that would probably be perfect. I really like the pacing in the early scene in the playground before Billy Hoyle (Harrelson) is introduced.
You're probably gonna have to end up purchasing them if you can't find them online... Especially WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP. I've known quite a few people looking for that one online -- never found it -- they had to buy it.

It's only $20 at ScriptFly.com.

I use Celtx, but is somehow doesn't work properly on Catalina and Big Sur. Fade In is a beautiful script app I discovered recently.
Do you have the legacy stand alone app, or are you using the online version? I have Big Sur on my MacBook Pro and Catalina on my MacPro editing machine. The legacy version works fine for me.

Yes, the standalone 2.9.7 version and it even doesn't install on Catalina or Big Sur, "the app needs to be updated" (probably because it is 32 bit version). A lot of older apps don't work in Catalina (like MathType, for example). I guess Celtx also is in that group. The latest version, according to reviews, crashes a lot in Big Sur.
