Points of Emphasis
-Â To set a screen, ensure you are stationary when the defender runs into you.Â Keep your elbows extended slightly, with your arms folded across your chest.Â Brace yourself for impact, but donâ€™t lean or swing your elbows.
-Â To use the screen, take two steps in the away from the screener, to set him up properly.Â Explode back and run directly beside the screener brushing shoulders with him.Â Donâ€™t leave any room for the defender to squeeze in between.
