Ball screens are great tools to use in the offense because they provide an opportunity for the defense to have a breakdown and make a mistake. For this basketball play, you are going to have the first ball screen man slip the screen. This will make the other big man have to help for a half second which will open up more space on the second ball screen. Since there won’t be a big man to extend out on the second ball screen, the guard should be able to turn the corner and create for themselves or for a teammate.
