On one side, defender X1 passes to 1, closes out into proper on-ball stance, defends a baseline drive, 1 picks up his dribble ("dead"), passes to X3 ("shot"), X1 boxes out 1.

X2 and 2 do the same on the other side (2 passes to X4).

(Option - use two balls on each side, see Shooting - Close-out lines)

Rotate attackers to the baseline, defenders to the attacking lines. X3 and X4 are the next defenders.
