A ball screen basketball play is a great way to get the defense behind on the play. If you can make the defense suck in or have to over rotate on the ball screen you can quickly play out of it, and you will have a good chance at getting an open shot. After the ball screen, get right into the cross screen down screen action, don’t let the defense recover. For this play to be successful you need your players to set good screens and cut hard.
