During the 2013/2014 Euroleague season, CSKA Moscow ran this high ball screen play with the special of setting a backscreen on the screener defender. This play is designed to have your two best pick and roll players running a high ball screen. The backscreen action workes against most pick and roll defenses (an exeption is the hard hedge and trap) and opens up multiple options for the offense.
1 dribbles to the right wing
5 screens for 4
4 then down screens for 2
3 cuts under the basket
5 sets a onball screen on 2
2 drives to the basket
3 sets a backscreen on 5's defender
5 rolls to the basket
1 and 4 create a balanced floor spacing
