Kermit Davis

Ballscreens against a 1-2-2 or 3-2 zone.

The 4-man is in the soft spot of the zone at the high post. They like to go away from 5. 1
passes to 2 and tilts to the guard spot, 3 moves down behind the arc, 4 ballscreens with his butt to the sideline.

On a pass to 1, the first option is right to 5 trying to seal in.
 
X4 has to decide if he is influenced by shooter 3 or is going to stay with 5. As soon as 5 sees that X4 is influenced by 3, he's trying to get his back to next defender X5.

On a pass to 3, 5 posts hard, 1 goes opposite, 2 fills.

If 3 drags up, 5 goes short corner, 4 goes mid post.

Or for continuity, 3 drags it up, 5 goes to the opposite post, 1 to the corner, 4 comes back and ballscreens for 3, 5 seals in on the pass to 2. They're trying to form a triangle on each side.

To continue, 2 passes to 1 and cuts through to the opposite corner, 1 would drag up.
