Today I’m going over the different types of passes you can do and when to best pull them off. First type of pass is the normal pass and you do that by moving the left stick towards the play.
The next type of pass is the balance pass. To achieve this, you aim the left stick to you want to pass it. The circle under control purpose of the bounce passes; they’re harder to intercept. A perfect one will have the ball hitting the ground, right as it passes the defender.
Next is the overhead skip pass. You do this by aiming to the area you want. To pass the ball with the left stick, then hit Y or triangle in your controller. I say pass to the area because skip passes will literally skip over the closer player in favor of the one further away. If they are both in the same line of vision of the ball, it’s best used when it got further from you is the one opening. You don’t want to risk wasting extra seconds having pass the ball twice for it to get to.
Next up is the fake pass. To do this you hit Y and B or triangle and circle. It’s best used when you’re driving into the lane. As again sometimes fake out a defender thus create an open shot for you.
Next is the icon pass. To do it you press our BRR one to bring up your icons and then select who you wonder passing to. And you can even lead who have you passed in any direction with the left stick before you hit the icon. Next time ago over the flash you pass to pull up the SportsCenter highlight. Rail passes you aim the left stick. You want to pass it to and DoubleTap B or circle to throw. To pass the better pass through the ball handler is more accurate.
Next is the jump pass. To do a jump pass, press X or square. It’s funny coaches tell you, don’t leave your feet when you pass. However these types of passes get a higher arc on them. Thus, making them harder to intersect.
Next up is the alley-oop. To throw a new key and elastic tools you want to throw the pass to double tap your triangle. You want to make sure the guy you’re about to throw to as a clean lane to the hoop. Or else his path will get blocked and you just owe the ball out of bounds.
To lead a player you aim the left stick towards the play you want. To make the cut and hold Y or try. Let go of the button to pass it. You want to break this out. If you notice the defenders plan tight coverage on the perimeter. It’s a three-point shooters counter to aggressive defenders.
Next is the touch pass. To attempt a touch pass you want to pass the ball and press A or X. And before the initial guy receives the ball, what happens is the first guy will get rid of the ball. Next is the give and go to pull off a give-and-go hold. Hold A or X and once the player receives the ball you will notice you will still have control of the initial ball.
From here you can wiggle around, drive to the basket; and when you think you’re open, they’re ready to receive the past like let go of the error X button. Lastly is the rolling and bam to do till you hit why your triangle use this. We need to save time on a clock because the clock doesn’t start until you touch the ball. Just make sure nobody’s lurking behind you, ready to intercept the ball or you will look a little silly.
