In transition, basketball plays don’t have to be as complex as in the half court because the defense usually is not set all the way. For this play, you are just going to use a simple ball screen to get a shot for your ball handler, and since the defense is not set, there is no help on the screen. This play only works if everyone is running the floor on offense to keep their defender honest.
