Jeff Van Gundy is the former head coach of the Houston Rockets and here are some of his notes on the pick and roll offense. The pick and roll is one of the best offensive weapons in today’s game. It’s the most difficult play to defend if run well. Coach Van Gundy will show you the screening angles and how to defend them.The six angles covered are the high, side, step-up, shake, spread and straight on pick & rolls. The “spread” pick and roll puts three players outside the 3pt line. The NBA has moved to using a 4 perimeter line up which benefits the spread offense. Using the pick and roll will let your team have a great tool for scoring points in the half court. I hope that you enjoy these basketball coaching clinic notes.
