On The Road To Lithuania: Pick And Roll - Triangle (Italy)

I'm watching many games from the National Teams that will be in Lithuania's Eurobasket.

One of them is Italy, and this is one of the teams I like more, due to their organization and the way they're coached.

I've seen an interesting pick and roll situation, and I want to share it with you.

The offense read the defense really well, and they find the way to put the ball inside for the screener (who actually doesn't set a screen at all) when he cuts toward the rim. The screener's defender is ready to flash, the corner's defender is ready to collapse the paint, and help side's defenders are far away. So the offense manage to create a triangle and to punish defensive recovery.

Let's take a look.
