      • Clicking on player profile and scrolling to Shot Chart for each game mode
      • Seeing a red semi circle indicator under a player’s feet while in a Hot Zone
      • Going to MyCOURT and on the court pressing Touch Pad (PS4) / View button (Xbox One) .

      • Learn and practice your jumpshot timing (if it’s not working for you, try a new one)
      • Take open shots
      • Space the floor / spread out to create open looks
      • Know and shoot from hot spots on the court
      • Use on-ball and off-ball screens to get open
      • Read the passer and move without the ball, bluffing changes in direction, etc. if necessary to get open.
      • If the defender is overplaying you, utilize back cuts and pump fakes
  • Notes:
    • Simulated games do not count towards earning badges
