Basketball Defense - Defending the Pick and Roll
by Coach Joao da Costa

Defending the Pick and Roll

Always try to disrupt the offense. Pressuring the ball makes dribbling and passing more difficult, and increases the chances of an offensive mistake. To defend the pick and roll at the wing or centerfield, here are some tactics:

* Trap the dribbler and go over the screen.
* Hard show and go over.
* Pinch, squeeze, or push up and under or through.
* Trap and aggressively switch the rescreen.
* Show and go under.
* Stop the dribbler and go over.
* Jump out to stop the ball and go through.
* Hug the screener and go under.
* Jump and trap the dribbler early before the screen can be set.
* Defend the roll man with a big-to-big rotation.
Note: On the weak side make sure to cover the top, elbow, and box.
* Switch pick and roll - you can always switch equal size players.
* Short-clock situations - switch regardless of size.

I think the most difficult play to defend in all of basketball is the Pick and Roll. Here are some options to defend against the Pick and Roll.

High Pick And Roll (Quick Slip)

X5 zone up.
X1 fights over the screen.
01 dribbles to the elbow for a shot or passes to 02 at wing.
05 rolls to the basket.
Rotation: X5 helps and recovers then quickly picks up 05.
Weakside players help and recover and stay with their individual opponents.

High Pick And Roll (Trap)

X1 and X5 trap 01.
01 reverses the ball to 05.

High Pick And Roll (Rotation)

05 reverse the ball to 01 and down screens for 03.
X5 steps back and lets X3 go through the screen to assume a denial position against 03.
X2 takes 02 at wing.

High Pick And Roll (Hug)

When 05 sets a screen for 01.
X5 hugs 05 and allows X1 to cut behind him.
The "HUG" is another option to help X1 get back quickly to 01.

High Pick And Roll (Step Back Get Through)

When 05 sets a screen for 01.
X5 steps back and lets X1 to go through.

High Pick And Roll (Stop Penetration)

High Pick And Roll (Re-Screen)

Step 1
X1 goes over the screen.
X5 hedges and recovers.

Step 2
X5 steps back.
X1 goes under the screen.

Note: On the screen-rescreen the dribbler's defender goes over the first screen. On the rescreen he goes under. Typically the second screen is solid, so X5 zones up and plays centerfield to prevent 05 from rolling to the basket and/or stops 01 from shooting or penetrating. Also X5 can trap 01 with X1.

High Pick And Roll (Trap and Reverse Pass)

Step 1
X1 goes over the screen.

Note: When the clock is running out, you can switch regardless of size or trap.

X5 switches with X1 and pushes 01 uphill.

Note: Communication is a must in this situation, X5 has to shout saying "Switch".

Step 2
