  • O4 and O5 just above the elbow areas.
  • O3 on the opposite block.
  • O2 is 3-4 feet off the block, slightly to the outside of the inbounder. If against a 3 low zone such as a 2-3 Zone, O2 should be even or outside of the widest defender.
  • O1 is the inbounder.


  • Above the elbow O5 screens away for O4 who comes to the strong side wing. O5 continues through to the opposite wing.
  • O4 and O5 should be considered safety options unless open for a shot.

  • O3 comes from the opposite block to O2 showing a screen, but instead steps around the man and seals for a post-up.
  • O2 takes a step at O3 to sell the block to block screen, then pops out to just short of the three point line.
  • O1 makes the inbound to O2, then quickly steps out using O2 as a rub screen to the corner.
  • O2 makes the quick dish to O1 for the three while attempting to get in the way of closing defenders by getting wide. If the three is not open, O1 can simply dribble push or swing/skip the ball to enter an offense.
