  • O5 should screen any defender guarding past the basket line on the strong side above the block, in this case D1.
  • O3 should screen the outermost defender, in the above example D2.
  • O2 should curl around the stagger screen and continue through the baseline attempting to draw the attention of the base defense.
  • O1 should follow O2 several steps behind and has a read option to look for a shot in the corner if the defense collapses on O2, or to continue through into the interior.
  • After O1 and O2 run through if the ball has not been inbounded, the two screeners should fade to the perimeter.
