the players understand the timing and execution, this play
almost always results in a close shot at the basket or a
trip to the foul line for two free throws. The screen seal
and pass timing are the critical points to perfect.
post player nearest the ball is the one to break and set
a screen for the other low post player. As soon as the other
post player cuts around the screen and contact is made with
his defenseman, the screener must pivot 180 degrees and
seal out that defensive player from the inbounding pass.
The passer throws the ball as the post player is beginning
his pivot. This is the first option.
post player furthest from the ball MUST wait until the screen
is set. The most common error is for both post players to
break at the same time. Once the screen is set, the far
post player cuts around the screen and looks for a pass
two outside players simply cross to the other's wing position
and look for a pass. This is the third option and usually
does not result in a shot, but may be the best recourse
if the inside play breaks down.
