8 tips for better play

  1. Defense is one of the most overlooked parts of the game. Beginners do not pay that much attention to it and are focussed on scoring 3 and 2 points. Always pay attention to the best defenders. Only use the most eligible defenders you have to guard the superstars in the coaching options.
  2. Offensive play is the most fun in the game. A lot of beginners are rushing it to the 3 point line or trying to make some points as fast a possible. Try to make the best plays in the 24 seconds you have

  4. Press the L1 button to call for a pick and roll
  5. After picking up that successful pick and roll, you can trick your opponents by acting you are going to shoot, drive for a layup or pass the ball to a teammate. Use this to make space and create a diversion.
  6. Offense: It is very important that you practice shooting a lot. The most important thing about shooting is that you release the ball at the exact right time. This will give you a higher chance for scoring.
  7. For an off the board, alley oop – tap Triangle twice after aiming.

To avoid the pesky offensive rebound, make sure you box out the second free throw attempt.
