The goal of this basketball play is to get a shot off the screening action for the shooter, or a backdoor layup for the wing after the big man catches it in the high post. But as you can see in the video those options were covered, but because they were run well, the big man’s defender had to help off, and this allowed a good handoff back to the PG for a shot. Don’t let your players be robots teach them how to read and react in every play.
