X-Out Switch: Cross Screen – Down Screen

Embedded below is a video of a common defensive tactic where teams will switch out from the weakside against cross screen/down screen action in the middle of the floor. As mentioned in the video, the teams that were best at this were the Heat teams that went to 4 straight NBA Finals from 2011-2014.

Check out the video below for an example of Murray State anticipating Belmont’s X-out
