This is a simple basketball play to run, but it is all about the point guard being aggressive coming off of the ball screen and making the right play for his team. The ball handler needs to make sure that they are ready for the different ways that the defense will guard a ball screen (trap, show, go under, etc). Once they recognize the way the defense is going to guard the ball screen, they can exploit it. This play is for an experienced guard that is used to using ball screens and can create for themselves or a teammate.
