In this pin down double screen basketball play the pin down action on one side is to keep the defense from being able to help on the double screen which is happening on the other side. Good basketball plays usually have multiple actions going on at the same time and this play is no different. By having more than one screening or cutting action going on at the same time it eliminates the defenses ability to help. However, if the weak side offense is just standing and watching, the defense can help and then recover to their man if the ball is kicked out.
