This play can be run as a continuity offense starting with a side ball screen. 1 dribbles off of the screen and passes to 4. 4 looks for the backdoor pass and if that isn’t available passes to the wing to get into another side pick & roll. As 2 comes off the ball screen they pass to the other post player (5) up top. 5 goes through same reads (backdoor pass or pass and follow pick & roll).
