This drill is a combination Conditioning, 3-on2, 2-on1 Fast Break, and Transition Defense drill.

Minimum Numbers of Players needed: 6
Numbers of Basket Balls needed: 1
Setup:  Two players on the far court lined up perpendicular to the baseline.  (Initial Defense).  Three Players at opposite 3-pt line extended.  (Initial Offense.  Preferred with good ball handler in middle)

Offense:
Proceed toward Defense. #5 dribble penetrates until stopped by #2.  (Emphasize to offense to continue until stopped), while #3 and #4 fill outside lanes.

Defense:
#2 should stop penetration of #5.  #1 should react to the first pass made by #5.  (Emphasize top player to stop penetration).
 
Offense:
#5 Passes to #3.  #4 cuts toward the basket for a layup, while #5 stops around the free throw line for a short jumpshot.  

Defense:
#1 reacts to the first pass made by #5.  In this case slides over to defend #3.  #2 then slides to opposite side to defend/steal pass to #4.
 
Offense:
(Emphasize the offense to score on two passes.) If #4 not open, #3 passes back to #5 for the jumpshot.

Defense:
Unfortunately the jumpshot will be open but in transition is not an easy shot.

All:
Box out and contend for rebound.
 
Offense:
When current defenders get the rebound they then become the offense going the other way for 2-on-1.

Defense:
#1 and #2 remain at the far end to play defense for the next group.  #5 (Player in the middle) becomes the defender coming to the near court.
 
Offense:
#1, and #2 try to score on #5.

Defense:
#5 tries to stop others from scoring.
 
When #5 get the rebound or a steal, an "outlet" pass is made to the nearest person inline. (again, hopefully a good ball handler)

#5 "outlets" the ball to #6.  #6 then takes the middle position for the 3-on2, while #7 and #5 fills the outside lanes.

#1 and #2 take the outside positions waiting for the next group.
 
Play then resumes from Sequence One.
