Screen navigation 101

Learn the ins and outs of screen navigation to understand why the Bulls lost to the Sixers on Wednesday

The Bulls lost to the 76ers 103-98 on Wednesday night, and screen navigation was one of the key elements of the game.

Seth Curry went off, scoring 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting. It was very evident that the Sixers’ early game plan was to run Curry off as many screens as possible, particularly when Zach LaVine was guarding him to start the game.

I wanted to illustrate what exactly happened in this game, and video is a better format for this one than the written word. Watch the YouTube video below to learn everything you need to know about NBA screen navigation. It was pivotal in the Bulls ending the first quarter down 29-19 and never being able to make up that deficit.
