This Houston Rockets basketball play is designed to get their best player Kevin Martin the basketball at the top of the key for a shot off of a double screen action. For this basketball play to work the correct way two things need to happen. First, the shooter must first set his/her man up before using the screen, and then secondly the players setting the double screen need to lock in and hit the shooters man with a good legal screen. Making sure your players know the details of a play are key, and this is one of the primary jobs as a basketball coach.
