Continuing our Best Dribble Moves series in NBA 2K17 we will discuss the three more moves you need to know and master to get an open shot. Here are some of the most effective dribbling moves to get you to the hoop. Be sure to checkout part 1 here.

1. Spin Move

To execute a spin, you rotate the right stick from the ball hand around your players back to his off hand. You do this as a counter for defenders who cut off where you’re going or it can create that extra half second for you to get a shot off in the lane while protecting the ball. It’s an easy low risk option of getting in the lane while not exposing the ball to the defender. That if done correctly, you’ll just slide off him and continue your way to the hoop.

2. Behind the Back Size-Up Combo

You achieve this by hitting down on the right stick twice in quick succession. Going behind the back protects the ball from the defenders in front of you until you expose the ball against to shoot or pass. The better ones are those that move the player the most from your initial starting place the fastest without ever moving the left stick

Best Behind the Back Size-Up Combos

  • Elite 1
  • Steph Curry
  • Jamal Crawford (who’s the best in my opinion, due in part to the fact he doesn’t have a delay at the end of his animation, where the player re-gathers the ball, so u can go straight up for a shot or drive. 

 3. Crossover Size-Up Combo

You pull this off my moving the right stick to the offhand then back to the ball hand instantly. Like the behind the back size-up the best ones are those that will create the most space for the ball handler the fastest.
Best Crossover Combo Animations

  • Chris Paul
  • Steph Curry
  • Rudy Gay (I like his because he adds in that extra side step when you think the animation is over that can create room for you to drive if the defender played the animation well up to that point)
