How to Call Plays
First and foremost, the controls will be the same if you’re on offense or defense. But, obviously, if you’re on offense, you’re going to be calling those kinds of plays. And if you’re on defense, you’re going to be changing the defensive positions of players.
To do this, you simply need to press L1 if you’re on PS4 or LB if you’re on Xbox One. You’ll then see button commands over each player (like, X, A, B, Triangle, Circle, etc. depending on which console you’re playing on). Choose one to change what that player is going to be doing for the play. This will either be changing up the kind of shot they’re going to take, who they’re passing to, who they’re going to be defending against and more. It’s a simple, yet robust way to make sure you’re always on your toes, changing up what your players are doing to get those balls in the basket.
