The play starts with a screen in by 4 for 2 who cuts out to the corner to get the ball. 5 screens away for 3 in the opposite corner and 2 passes to 3 at the top of the key. 2 and 1 then can choose whether to use the screens by 4 or 5. 2 makes the first decision either cutting back out to the left wing or running across the floor to cut off of 5. 1 reacts to 2 and makes the correct cut after 2 has gone. A natural progression on this play is to have the big step out to set a ball screen once the ball is on the wing.
