Frame 1
The play begins with #1 dribbling at #2 and looking to make the pass to him for the backdoor lay-up. While this is happening, #5 will come to the nail to clear space.

Frame 2
If we cannot hit #2 on the back cut, #3 will come off of a stagger double set by #'s 4 and 5. We want #3 to score going to the basket or look to post up in the low post.


Frame 3
Off of the stagger double, #5 will step out to the point and look to catch if we cannot pass to #3. When #5 catches the ball, #2 will set a back screen for #4 and #5 will look to pass it in to him.


Frame 4
Should the back screen to #4 not be available to us, we will pass to #2. On the pass to #2, #4 will look to post up in the low post and receive the ball from #2. Meanwhile, #3 will set a back screen for #5 just above the nail. Coming off of the back screen for the lob, #5 will be the second option.


If we cannot get either, #3 will step out to the perimeter and catch the ball at the point. From here, we will go into our half-court offense.
