Anytime you can have weak side motion going on while you are in a ball screen action, it is good basketball offense. The reason it is good is because it keeps the defense on the weak side from being able to help in the two man game, and if they do help, the shooter will be open coming off of the double pin down screen. For this basketball play to work though, the offense needs to set great screens for each other, and the timing needs to be lined up. Another big key is making sure that the ball handler is aggressive off the ball screen action.
