Pick and roll

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The pick and roll, also known as a ball screen or screen and roll, is a play in basketball. A player stops in front of a defender to block, then goes around and receives a pass from a teammate. In the NBA, the play started to be used in the 1990s. It is now used very often.[1]
