Zone Offense: Ball Screens

In game three, Real Madrid had some good moments playing against Barcelona's zone defense.

Ball screens, overload and some pick and pop action, they managed to score seven points which in games like this one, are pretty important.

The main ideas were these:

  • Dribbling or hand off entry

  • Ball screen (they can give the pass straight to the opposite side instead of using this ball screen when Barcelona deny it) + ball screen.

  • Overload and pick and pop option, mostly when Mirotic sets the screen (forcing the defenders to rotate) plus right spacing.

Let's watch it:
