Execution

  • O2 and O3 use O4 and O5 as rub screens on the inside while curling out to the wing.
  • O1 will make a decision on which way to go, to O3 in the case in the example above.
  • The post player on the ball side elbow (O4) will start to make a cut across the key while the weak side elbow (O5) will cut over the top of O4 and curl down to the strong side block.
  • After O5 passes by, O4 will take a strong V-Cut towards the rim and then fade out to the top of the key.
  • O3 is given either the option to feed the post or hit the cutter to the top of the key if open for a shot.
