Any time you can get the defense to have to collapse to help on a back screen, you are usually going to end up with something good. For this back screen flare screen basketball play you are going to make the defense suck in to help, and then make them pay by sealing in the shooter’s man on the flare screen. It is a really good basketball play to run if you have a quality shooter that can knock down shots off of a screening action.
