Pick And Pop

What does Pick And Pop Mean?

An offensive play in which a player without the ball sets a screen for his teammate with the ball, and then moves or "pops" to an open area on the floor. He then receives a pass and takes an open jump shot.


Sporting Charts explains Pick And Pop

Ideally, for an effective pick and pop, you need a screener (preferably a forward or a center) who is also a terrific perimeter shooter. Some of the most potent pick and pop combinations in the NBA today are David West and Chris Paul, Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry, and Kyle Korver and Derrick Rose.
