Guarding the On Ball Screen – Double

x1 takes away the baseline drive and forces the dribbler to use the screen. x5 steps out, toes to the sideline, to “show their number”.

As the dribbler moves, x5 steps out to guard the ball and x1 follows the dribbler hard to form a double team with x5. x1 must get into position quickly to ensure the dribbler cannot split the two defenders by dribbling between them.
