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.

What is basketball screening?

A screen in basketball is when one man on your team free's up another player on your team by 'blocking' the defender as your teammate runs of the screen or 'block.' When setting the screen, you are not allowed to move your feet, otherwise it is an illegal screen and an offensive foul. After the screen has been set, the player is freed from his defending to dribble or shoot with extra space.
