Featured play: Underneath out-of-bounds
4 inbounds the ball, while 2 and 1 are the elbows and 5 and 3 are on the blocks. 5 steps in, then busts to the corner. 1 pops out to the top on the ball side. 4 passes to 5. 5 passes to 1.
2 sets a downscreen for 4, who is coming into play. If the defense is man-to-man, 2 screens 4's defender. If they're in a zone, 2 screens the middle defender in the zone. 4 curls off 2's screen and looks for a pass from 1.
5 screens the screener and 2 pops to the ball-side corner. After setting the screen, 5 rolls to the basket. 1 looks for 2 or throws a "jump-shot pass" to 5 in the post.
