The play begins with a 1-2-2 set.

4 and 5 start at the high post and screen down for 2 and 3 who start on the low blocks.

2 and 3 Break Out To Fill Wings

2 and 3 Break Out To Fill Wings

2 and 3 set there men up for the screens and come up to the high post (the screen is coming down). At the high post they cut hard to the wings where 1 will make a pass.

Wing Looks to Get the Ball Down Low

Wing Looks to Get the Ball Down Low

Once 2 or 3 has the ball they look to pass inside. In this example 3 has the ball on the wing and is looking to pass to 5. If 3 can't get the ball to 5 within a second or two then the play moves on to the next step.

Note: Notice that 1 is waiting as well at this time. 1 Doesn't want to screen until 3 is ready to pass to 2 so wait until 5 makes a move to screen for 4.

Note: Notice that 2 drops down into the three point area a little bit. This sets up his man for the screen that will be coming from 1. If 2 can lose his man when 1 sets the screen then he can get a good look when he catches the ball at the point.

The Wing Makes A Pass

Assuming 3 could not get the ball to 5 in the post, 5 and 1 screen away. If 3 can hit 4 early (i.e. just as he hits the middle of the key
then 4 has great position to seal his man and shoot a layup. If the pass to 4 isn't open or if 2 really has his man beat then 3 can pass to 2. 2 can shoot the three or, if the shot isn't there 2 simply passes the ball to 1 or back to 3 and the wing looks to get the ball down low again. Rinse and repeat.

Possible Backdoor

Possible Backdoor

After the wing passes the ball back up to the point there is a good opportunity for a backdoor. If 3's defender is playing tight and jumps to the pass that 3 makes to 2 or if 3's defender is trying to take away the baseline then the defender is in a great position to be screened from behind by 4. 4 steps up, sets the screen for 3 and 3 makes a hard cut to the basket. 2 looks for the pass. If it isn't there then continue with the normal offense.
