See YouTube video - Drills to develop team defence.

Pick and roll shell the Spurs do every day.

See Defending - Celtics ballscreens, Defence -  Woodley ballscreens.

Bigs are below the foul line.

5 sets a step-up (flat ballscreen), they push sideline and baseline, so when X5 calls push-push-push, X1 closes the gap and influences 1 in high-hip stance to the sideline and baseline, X5 drops and zones, X1 chases and pursues as 1 comes off the screen.

5 pops, 1 throws it back, X5 recovers, 5 swings it to 2, 4 sets a step-up, X4 calls push-push-push and drops, X2 closes the gap and chases over top.

Reverse the ball into a downhill ballscreen, 5 passes and follows, a tough pick and roll in their defensive scheme. X5 calls push-push-push, X1 gets on the high side, X5 drops.
