Here DJ is simulating the on ball defender going over the top of the ball screen while the screener’s defender showing a soft hedge. Typically to get to the open space in this situation is to “snake” the screen by crossing over. However, in this situation, DJ shows an in and out move to “fake snake” the screen and get to open space towards the wing area.
Practicing proper footwork is essential in this drill to cover maximum space and create an open shot. Make sure to practice this going both right and left.
