1 dribbles left and passes to 3. After the pass, 1 makes a cut off of a back-screen from 5. 4 moves across the lane to the opposite block. 3 looks to pass inside to 4 or hit 1 for a lob pass. If neither option is open, 1 and 5 set a staggered down-screen for 2. 2 cuts to the top of the key for a shot. If 2 doesn’t have a shot, 5 sets a ball-screen at the top of the key as 3 cuts across the baseline off of a staggered screen from 4 and 1.
