VIDEO: Killer Cotton On-ball Screens

Bryce Cotton in the pick n roll/pop is almost impossible to stop. His combination of excellent shooting and equally impressive playmaking, make him a deadly proposition to defend in on-ball screens.

Cairns Taipans tried two different schemes to stop him in such situations in their Semi-Final meeting; In Game One they allowed him far too much room and he made them pay by knocking down 3-pointers; In Game Two Cairns tried a more aggressive approach. And while it slowed Cotton down somewhat (he was still able to put up ten 3-point attempts, but only hit one) it left his teammates wide open for 3-pointers, mid-range jumpers and rolls to the rim.

As the video shows, there is now easy way to defend Cotton in the picknroll/pop and the Taipans can certainly attest to that
