Different team run it at different times. Some teams run it after they've made a freethrow, some run it at different times to pressure the opposing team, particularly if they have a poor ball handler. Most teams will run a full court press if they're down by a few points late in the game.

a full court press is where your team makes a shot, then stay on the opponents side of the court and try to stop them from advancing passed half court. if you hold them on their side of the court for 8 seconds, that's a foul on the other team, called the 8 second violation.
