NBA 2K23 ‘Reinforcements’ Explained

Reinforcements is a fun new 3v3 mode in the Theater that lets users choose 2 CPU teammates and face off against another player and their 2 CPU teammates to go along with their MyPLAYERS.

NBA 2K23 ‘Reinforcements’ Tips

  • Choose a roster that complements your MyPLAYER. For example, if you have a paint beast MyPLAYER like Shaq, you could surround him with knock-down three-point shooters in case the opponent double teams in the paint, and so on.
  • Don’t forget about defense, choose 2-way CPU players where possible
  • Call a screen to force switches
  • Try to have good spacing
  • Look for favorable matchups
  • Trust the CPU teammates – depending on the teammate, their strengths, and how well they’re doing in the game
  • This mode is great for grinding for badges because you get to dictate the gameplay more since it’s CPU teammates
