This simple baseline out of bounds play is often quite effective at getting a layup.
When the official hands the basketball to O1, O3 cuts to opposite side of lane and screens O5’s defender. (O3 should also turn to basket as he sets the screen).
O5 runs his defender into O3 and then cuts across the lane.
If the screen is effective and there is no switch, O5 will be open to receive the pass from O1 for the layup. If the defenders switch, O3 can step in, seal the defender on his back and receive the pass from O1.
At the same time, O4 steps into the lane a couple of steps behind O3 and screens for O2 who runs his defender off the screen.
This action may result in a mid-range jumper for O2 if nothing is available under the basket. It will also provide a couple of outlets if the intended layups are not available
