The play starts with a quick dribble hand-off with 1 and 2 and an exchange on the weak side between 4 and 3. 1 hands it off to 2 who passes out to 3. 5 moves up to the high post and sets a back screen for 2 who cuts into the lane and then away to the corner, and then 5 sets a ball screen for 3. This back screen / ball screen action can be very difficult to defend, especially if teams like to hard hedge or switch ball screens. On the ball screen, 3 drives middle, 5 rolls into the lane, 4 lifts into a shooting spot on the left wing, and 1 drops to the corner for a shot.
