It is about basketball play and I don't understand what 'out of a down screen' is. Could anybody explain it for me please?

> they gonna start off with a pick-and-roll, and then they gonna start playing from there, or they'll initiate out of a down screen.


Down Screens (also know as Pin Downs) according to HoopTactics:

Down Screens are the most commonly used Off-Ball screens. They are primarily used to free up good shooters. Simple, but when well executed, they are a very effective means for getting the ball to good shooters for open shots.

I found a interesting youtube video. Here you can see some work on setting a Down Screen.

Best Regards.
