When running a basketball play if you are able to get multiple screens at the same time you can take away any help defense. Having a back screen on one side followed by a flare screen on the other side opens up the floor, and keeps the defense from focusing in on one action. It also prevents the defense from loading up one side of the floor with help defenders. It is your job as the coach to put your players in a position where they can make a winning play for your team.
