Being able to have screening action happen on both sides of the floor at the same time is good basketball offense. This makes it very hard for the defense to be able to help on each screen. The defense gets focused on the pin down screen and then for the flare screen they are out of position to help. This basketball play will only work if the offense is run with purpose and the pin down action is sold.
