  • The play begins with O1 at the weak side elbow curling around and rubbing off O2 and O5 on the way out to the weak side corner. This creates a distraction for the defense throughout the middle of the court.
  • After O1 runs by, O5 pops to the corner.
  • O3 sets a diagonal screen for O2 and makes a reverse pivot to seal and come back to the ball.

Ideal scoring options are both players coming off the diagonal screen.
