Top play: '54' from a 1-4 high set

This play is called "54" because you want to get the ball to your 5 or 4 player. Start in a 1-4 high set. 1 enters the ball to 2. 1 then cuts off a backpick from 5. 5 steps to the high post while 1 continues through to the right corner. 2 looks into the post to 4, who should be isolated with no help defense coming.

If 4 is not open, 2 passes to 5 at the top of the key. 4 then curls into the lane looking for a pass from 5.

If 4 still isn't open, 5 then reverses the ball to 3 on the opposite wing. 2 and 5 set a double screen for 1. 1 comes from the corner, uses the double screen and moves to the free-throw-line area. 4 pops out of the lane to the ball-side block.

3 looks for 4 first in the lane, then has the option of passing to 1 at the free-throw-line area. If neither option is open, 4 comes to the elbow, 1 pops to the top of the key and 2 moves outside the three-point line near the wing to reset the offense.

Have the 5 set the second screen for 2 to come up to the top of the key for the set up to make it more continuous. 1 then to the wing and 4 & 5 go to high post and swing the ball to the 1 for the same movements as the beginning.

Good set I like the spacing and high-low look with 5 and 4
