This is a Great Lob Set for your 5 Player or best athlete.
The 2 and 3 players will cut in and set inside screens on the top 2 defenders in the Zone.
The 1 player will drive the middle gap after 2 and 3 set the screens. On the dribble by the 1 player, the 4 player will set a screen on X4 to seal the back line defender.
X5 will step up to stop the ball, creating the space for the lob pass to the 5 player!! The pass does not have to be for a dunk. It can be for a catch and lay up.
