More often than not, however, defenses will choose to shrink the floor to prevent such an outcome — or prevent one of Paul’s screening partners in the double ball screen setup from diving with an open lane to the rim. Having the “low” man — the defender guarding the weak-side corner — come over to “tag” the roll man is one method of prevention.
Like most choices defenders make, there’s risk involved. Tagging the roll means a momentary window is opened toward the weak-side corner. Leaving that window open for even a split-second gives Paul all the time he needs to laser a pass toward the corner
