Practice Practice Practice
We talkin’ about practice! Practice mode is a great mode to work on new shots, work out the kinks in your shot, finding the sweet spot of when to release the ball, etc. A good general rule is to take the shot at the peak of the jump. Also you may want to turn on shot feedback (game settings > presentation) to get a general idea of what release timing constitutes a good shot, excellent shot, poor shot, etc.
Know Your Hot Spots
While in practice mode, press Select to pull up the Hot Spots graphic which will show you the zones on the court that you shoot the best at. Hot spot zones will also increase as you increase your shooting attributes.
Take Good Shots
This goes without saying – never settle for bad shots. The shot clock gives you 24 seconds, so utilize it to the fullest. When you take a bad shot – i.e. heavily contested, rushed, forced, etc – it’s basically a free gift to the defense and let’s your opponent off the hook. Always strive to get good looks of the basket where the defender isn’t close enough to heavily contest the shot.
