It is specifically designed to get him a shot on the floor where he is comfortable shooting. Make sure that you are getting your players the ball where they are comfortable with it and have an advantage over the defense.

Play Goal: Get a shot for your best scorer/shooter off of the double screen.
Play Tips: The shooter needs to take a good angle when coming off of the double down. Screeners need to find the shooters defender and set a good screen on him. If the second screener’s defender helps to much the screener needs to space or cut to the basket for a shot.
