In this drill from NBA skills trainer and IMPACT Basketball founder Joe Abunassar,work on a unique type of screen scenario meant to neutralize how defenses are countering the traditional screen and roll game.
"It's a different angle on a ball screen that's being used because most teams...they're playing the ball screen down to the baseline," says Abunassar. "So teams have adjusted their screening angle."
