NBA Coaches Playbook

They usually don't call the play, but move depending on where the first pass is made and how the defence reacts. 4 and 5 can exchange positions depending on who rebounds.

1)

1 passes to 5, downscreens for 4 and crosses the lane to the low post.

NBA Coaches Playbook - if 1 passes to 3, 4 backscreens for 1 and exchanges positions.

Tubby Smith - if 5 is the ballside low post on a pass to 3, they don't want to bring him out to backscreen, post him up, stagger screen for a shooter in the other corner.

5 passes to 4, 1 screens for 2 and gets a screen from 5.

NBA Coaches Playbook - 2 could instead use 5's screen to come high and 1 crosses the lane to the low post.

Tubby Smith "go" move - 1 snaps across the lane, 2 comes to the top (used when X2 sags).

Options

b)

3 fakes using 2 and cuts up off 4, 2 cuts using 5.

NBA Coaches Playbook - 3 can use 2's screen to cut into the lane or 4's screen to come high. If 3 comes high, 2 cuts into the lane and out to the other corner using 5.
