Best Answer

Screen or pick - classic play in Basketball is the pick and roll, one player sets a pick, the other player comes across the pick and if the defender defending the player setting the pick goes for the guy with the ball, he rolls off and goes to the hoop. The person laying the pick cannot 'move' - Excellent way to get players open. You can set back picks, picks away from the ball. Creates defensive confusion.
