DEL HARRIS ON DEFENDING CUTTERS OFF SCREENS

Via Coach Eric Musselman comes a comment from Del Harris on what a player should do after he has been screened:

"Keep coming after you get screened. A common strength of good defenders is that they are hard to screen. And, if they get screened they just keep on coming through the hit and pursue their man relentlessly. "The average defender will stop or straighten up when hitand that puts a lot of pressure on his teammates to cover for him until he decides to get back into the defense again. "Be tough and aggressive--make the screener feel pain-- and keep coming. Don't be the one the team defense has to bail out all the time."
