When you are looking to get your best player a shot and he doesn’t handle the ball that well himself, it is important to set multiple screens to help him them open. These types of basketball plays are really good for shooters because they usually don’t handle the basketball well enough to get their own shot off, and they can use multiple screens in a row to get a quality shot off. You must be willing to run these types of plays for them though.
