O1 takes the ball out of bounds after the opposition has scored. O2 is at the free throw line, O4 is in the backcourt on the inbound passer’s right side, O5 is at midcourt, and O3 is away from the play on the inbounders left side.
After the score, O1 picks up the ball and steps out of bounds. As he does so, O2 moves up and blindscreens O1’s defender on X1’s right side. O1 then runs to the right with the ball, attempting to run his defender into O2. If contact is made, O2 attempts to draw the step in foul by falling down. At the same time, O5 sets a blind screen on O4’s defender, rolls to the sideline, takes a pass from O1, and calls timeout.
This play gives a team three chances in the last five seconds: (A) they may draw the step-in foul; (B) 4 may be open for the long pass; and (C) if nothing happens, the timeout is called with the ball almost at midcourt.
