Top Tips on Offense:
- Master the shot meter: There are two ways to shoot in NBA 2K, either hold the X button or use the right analog stick and release when the meter fills up. Each player’s meter fills up at different speeds, so master the timings to consistently score on opponents.
- Pick and Roll: Hold LB to have a teammate come and block your opponent, giving you a chance to break free to drive to the rim, or attempt a three-point shot.
Top tips on Defense:
- Protect the Rim: Press Y to attempt a block or if the shot has been missed, claim the rebound with the same button.
- Pick your Opponents Pocket: If an opponent is attempting to get past you, press the X button at the right time to poke the ball free and regain possession.
