NBA 2K19: How to Call Plays (Offensive & Defensive)

How to Call Plays in NBA 2K19

NBA 2K19 isn’t just about wandering aimlessly around the court without a plan as a different character each time. No, it’s also about making the best plays for your team possible. In the game, you’re able to actively switch up the defensive and offensive plays right on the court, while you play. Here’s how to call plays in NBA 2K19.

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.

Keep this in mind if you find that something isn’t working, or if some player is simply wiping the floor with your guy. You may need to change up what you do with a new play.

That’s really all there is to it, Coach. That’s how you call plays in NBA 2K19. If you need more help with the game, be sure to check out our wiki for it.
