1
1 dribbles at 2, who zipper cuts using 4's downscreen.

Emir Mutapcic

- run zipper fist if the ball goes to the left side
- against teams that will try to deny the pass to 2, 2 backscreens for 4 then cuts up.
 
Avery Johnson - on the cut up, 2 will stop to block his defender then continue the cut for a pass.
 
Tom Izzo Loop dive - instead of trailing when 2 loops, X2 overplays (going ballside), 4 takes a step out of the block (towards the short corner), 2 plants and backcuts.

2
On the pass from 1 to 2, 5 downscreens for 3 and 4 backscreens for 1.
 
Option - 4 does not backscreen until 2 passes to 3 (e.g., Emir Mutapcic, zipper flare quick hitter).

3 ducks into the lane if his defender cheats high on the screen.

If 2 is denied, he cuts backdoor and 4 steps out to the short corner (Hoop Tactics), or 5 flarescreens for 2 (NBA Coaches Playbook).

3
On ball reversal to 3, 4 flarescreens for 2, 5 screens for 1 running the baseline, then posts.

See Germany 2005, Serbia U18, and Bill Self's "blue" motion entry (a three-point shot for 2, 4 does not backscreen for 1).

Variation - 4 flashes to the weakside elbow, 2 goes wide (Florida fast break).

4
Emir Mutapcic - 3's options are

- pass to 1 for a two-man game with 5
- skip pass to 2
- pass into 5
- call for a ballscreen by 4 (shown), 5 reacts to 4.
