  • O5 should set a down screen for O1 who will curl over the top into the corner for a possible quick three. O5 should continue moving across the paint towards the weak side elbow.
  • O2 cuts towards the ball above the foul line towards the strong side elbow and makes a sharp fade cut using a screen from O5. O5 should make sure to go far enough to get underneath O2s man to set a proper back screen.
