Dwill didn't play both ends. Gobert is behind Stockton and Malone in Jazz history now. Hayward is probably 4th because he to played both ends.

It's simple. You don't allow him to make it to the rim. There are two offensive players and two defensive players involved in the pick and roll, yes?

Let's imagine you have the other players on the 3-point line, which is what the Jazz do. Two in the corner, one at the break. Let's look at how you defend this:

1. Defensive center sags and the wing defender goes under the pick.

Open 3.

2. Defensive center sags and the wing defender goes over the pick.

2-on-1 with the wing defender on the back of the ball-handler.

3. Defensive center comes up to hedge/trap the ball-handler.

Rudy dives to the basket. If the center recovers back to him, he gets the ball at point-blank range because he moves so quickly and he's taller than the other center.

4. Send the defender from the strong-side corner to bump Rudy and buy more time.

Ball goes to open shooter in the corner.

What typically happens is the teams defend this action well, but as the defender recovers to the corner he is beaten on a drive. This starts the "advantage basketball". The defensive center moves to block this drive. Usually a guard helps to prevent Rudy from getting the ball, but this leaves another shooter open. That shooter gets it, and if the defender recovers, rinse and repeat.

That is Jazz basketball. Replace Rudy with virtually any other player and this offense becomes much worse because the defender in the corner can stay home.

This is vertical spacing. He opens the floor for shooters.
