When a high ball screen happens against a 2-3 zone it often creates a 1 on 1 situation in the post.
In the diagram below O1 is spaced poorly at the point vs. the 2-3 zone defence. As in any offensive play spacing is important; not just in distance from each other, but in alignment vs. the defenders.
The dribble has tremendous value when attacking a zone defence when used properly. However it also can become a detriment to the offensive team when players do not make the proper reads and use the dribble indiscriminantly.
When attacking most zone defenses, particularly a 2-3 zone, one of the objectives should be to create a "wing up" situation, where a defensive forward in the zone must guard the ball at the wing (video clip included).
Exchange to Double Pin is a zone set that is designed to create an open shot at the wing area for the best perimeter shooter.
A fundamental of zone defences is to have one or two defenders on the weak-side of the floor, usually one high and one low. Whether it is a 1-2-2, 2-3, or 1-3-1 zone defence when the ball is on one wing the weak-side will have a defender (or two) that can be easily screened.
