Anytime you make a defensive player have to guard multiple screening actions in a row you multiply the chances for a breakdown. This basketball play is going to run a flare screen immediately followed by a pin down rescreen. As you can see in this clip, there is space for the cutter to read the defender and exploit them. If the defender is playing too high, they can back cut, if the defender is playing on the low side, they can use the pin-down action for a shot.
