  1. Passing the Ball – If you are on offence, then press X or A, and then pull the left analogue stick to pass the ball. For the beginners, you would need some practice to get a hold of this technique.

‘Pick and Roll’ Play – ‘Pick and Roll’ play is the most exciting part of the game. If you are on offence and want to try this trick, use the left bumper of the controller to move the corresponding player towards the first player or the player you are controlling.
