As 1 comes off of the ball-screen from 5, 4 moves up the lane line to bring his defender away from the basket. 3 moves in from the corner and sets a rear screen on 5 who just set the ball screen for 1. 1 looks to make a lob pass to 5 for a dunk or lay-up. If the lob isn’t open, 1 passes to 3 who steps out after screening for 5. 3 then dribbles toward the wing and looks to create a passing angle to pass to 5 in the post. If 5 isn’t open, 3 passes to 2 cutting off of a staggered wide pin down screen from 1 and 4.
