- 4 will cut across the lane to the middle post area and set a screen for 3.
- As 4 is coming across the lane, 5 will cut toward them to fake their defender and then turn and set a screen for 3.
- 3 should have already set up their defender by cutting low, and will now read their defender and cut off the double screen.
- 3 will either cut high or low off the double screen, depending on how their defender reacts.
- If 3 cuts low, they should try to seal their defender off and get position as close to the basket as possible.
- 1 should dribble below the foul-line extended to improve their passing angle.

- If 3 does not get the pass from 1, they should establish low post position.
