Ball Screen Zone Basketball Plays
Ball screen zone basketball plays can be very effective, if run the right way. The key is getting the top two defenders on the zone to have a miss communication and both guard the ball screen action at the same time. This will open up the other wing players for a shot, a chance to attack the gap, or a quick reversal to another open teammate.
Make sure that the player catching the pass off of the ball screen does not just catch and hold the ball. That will allow the defense to recover and the ball screen will have been for nothing. You must keep the ball moving after the initial ball screen action.
Executing Ball Screen Zone Basketball Plays
The best time to attack a zone is after a couple of ball reversals, and using a ball screen against a zone is no different. You want to first get the defense shifting and worrying about other players cutting through the zone before attacking off of the ball screen. The player using the ball screen needs to be aggressive and make themselves a threat to score. After that they can either take the shot, or create for another teammate off of the drive.
