When double-teamed, the offence must get to a situation of three passes at once, and somebody has got to be in the middle of the court with their head on the line of the ball to the basket.

a)

1 is double-teamed in the frontcourt, 5 must get on the line of the ball to the basket and break the line between interceptors X2 and X3, sideline 2 must get above X2, and 4 gets behind the ball. 3 is the "attacker" on the backside.

b)

2 is trapped on the baseline, 1 is behind the ball, 5 splits interceptors X1 and X3 (he doesn't want to get too close to 2), and 3 comes down to the baseline, stretching X3. 4 is the attacker on the backside.

c)

Here 2 is trapped in the corner, 5 is on the line between the ball and the basket. They are probably in pretty good shape (even though there are only two short pass options), but if X1 moves out to take away 1, 4 comes in.

d)

3 is trapped on the wing, 5 gets on the line of ball and basket (breaking the line between interceptors), 4 gets behind the ball, and 2 must come underneath, ballside, separating himself from the nearest defender. 1 is the attacker, if the ball is reversed quickly to him, take it to the basket or shoot a 3-point shot, the defence is not in block-out position.

e)

Here 3 is trapped on a side ballscreen, 3 wants to stretch it, screener 4 wants to space it, 5 gets to the line of the ball and basket, 1 gets back so they can get the ball out of there, 2 becomes the backside guy.
