NBA 2K17: How to Shoot Perfect Two and Three Pointers

How to Shoot – NBA 2K17

NBA 2K17 once again brings on the court action where you’re going to want to get as many points as possible against your opponents. Best way to do that? Score some shots. Here’s how you can shoot the best possible shots to get two or three pointers.

Depending on whether you’re playing on Xbox One or PS4, you’re going to be using X or Square to make your shots. You’re going to want to consider your character’s stats (which you chose at the beginning of the game) for two pointers, lay ups, free throws, and three pointers. Don’t go unreasonably far from the basket. Stand at the outer line for three points, and get pretty close to the basket for two. Once you’re in position and don’t have anyone defending you well enough so that there’s resistance or a possible steal/block, it’s time to attempt the shot.

Hold down X or Square and you’ll see a meter below your character’s stamina begin to fill up. You can hold this button down as long as you want to fake out, but once you let go and the meter is full, your character is going to shoot the ball. Thus, you’re going to want to make sure that this meter is as close to the end of its span before letting go. This increases your odds of landing that shot.

There you have it, get out there and grab your team sin NBA 2K17 some points. For more help with the game, be sure to check back to Twinfinite for guides, tips, and wikis.
