Ball screens are used to put the defense at a disadvantage and make them have to think and communicate. The idea behind this side ball screen basketball play is to continually keep setting side ball screens until the defense eventually breaks down and lets up an open shot. For this basketball play to work, you have to make sure that you are setting good screens, keeping good spacing, and being aggressive off of the ball screen action.

Play Goal: Run a side ball screen action on one side of the floor and look to score out of it. If nothing is there then reverse the ball and run another ball screen action on the other side with the other big man.
Play Tips: Be aggressive out of the ball screen, keep good spacing, and read the defense. The ball handler needs to really be able to read the defense and hit the open man off of the ball screen action. If nothing is there on the first or second ball screen action quickly reverse the ball and get into it again. Don’t hold the ball and let the defense reset.
