  • Both O2 and O4 set a cross screen for O1 and O5 respectively. O1 should try to stay along the foul line extended as the paint will generally be crowded.
  • O2 and O4 should seal the player they screen by opening to the basket with their outside foot and looking back to the inbounder for a possible open shot.


  • An alternate option to having the screening players immediately seal is to have O2 screen up for O4.

  • The opposite is also possible, with O4 screening down for O2 who should use the down screen to head towards the top of the key.
