This offense starts with 1, 2 and 4 playing the perimeter. 3 starts on one of the corners and 5 at the high post. 5 will be sliding around the key as the ball swings from side to side. 3 will be running the baseline.

To begin, 1 passes the ball to the wing opposite of 3. 3 is most effective when he is cutting across the baseline. 5 slides to the ball side high post and 3 cuts along the baseline. 4 begins to set his man up for the eventual screen from 1.
