Here is a very easy basketball play from the LA Clippers. In this simle play, they stick a shooter beneath the ball screener in a high pick and roll situation. This allows the screener to roll over top of the shooter, enticing the shooters defender to roll with the screener to the rim. This opens up a good look for a 3pt shot.The easier the play is to execute, the greater success you will have with it. Enjoy!
