You know what they say, defense wins games, and while this is very accurate, there is also another essential factor: grabbing rebounds. In NBA 2K17, you will be tasked with grabbing rebounds on both offense and defense and if you aren’t sure how to execute grabbing the perfect rebound, you came to the right place.
Grabbing a rebound is quite easy if you know what you are doing. It’s all about precise timing and correct use of a player’s height. You don’t want to get too early of a jump resulting in an automatic failure. Instead, you will want to jump seconds before the basketball hits the rim.
When grabbing rebounds, you will need to take the taller players of the team, preferably the center or the power forward and position them inside the paint. Grabbing a rebound is very simple – all you have to do is be on guard for when your opponent shoots the ball and press RT/R2 to box out the opposing team and press Triangle/Y before the ball hits the ground. With precise timing and control, you should always have an advantage over the opposing team.
Be wary, though, if you already being boxed out and you still try to grab a rebound you might get hit with an “over the back” foul,which can add up if unchecked.
There you have it, here’s everything you need to know when grabbing a rebound. For more NBA 2K17 help, be sure to check back with Twinfinite for guides, tips, and wikis.
