Rule clarification

Per the official USAR rules:

After a legal serve, a player receiving the serve must strike the ball on the fly or after the first bounce, and before the ball touches the floor the second time; and return the ball to the front wall, either directly or after touching one or both side walls, the back wall or the ceiling, or any combination of those surfaces. A returned ball must touch the front wall before touching the floor.

So does this mean it must hit the front wall immediately before hitting the floor? For instance, could it go side wall -> front wall -> side wall -> floor?

I'm a beginner trying to figure this out. Thanks.
