Tips for XP/triple double grinders in Triple Threat Offline (possibly next gen only)
When you're hunting for rebounds you probably want to take control of the player yourself to get in position for rebounds on defense. I found the problem is: usually you will leave players alone on the outside for open 3PT, which is good for rebounding, unless they are actually going to make them. Try this:
- Choose your rebound player and make the other 2 gold (CPU in TT Offline won't go below gold anyway).
- On defense, click LB/L1, then your player's icon, then assign him to guard the worst 3PT shooter.
After the next possession your assignment should be that guy, meaning you can leave him alone on the perimeter without the threat of actually giving up lots of 3PT. And if he drives, it's easy to defend him and probably get the board anyway. Obviously if your opponent has 3 great shooters this won't work, but if your lineup is Diamond - Gold - Gold, chance are very high one or more of the opponents players will be terrible shooters.
Another tip on the offensive end: the normal thought to get offensive boards is to miss on purpose with another player to create offensive rebound opportunities. The problem is, I have trouble consistently getting the rebounding player in position off-ball (sometimes pick and roll doesn't even work). What I found SOMETIMES is better is to just try to score inside with your guy primarily when well-guarded. This has your player closer to the rim and more likely to rebound. This will obviously give up a lot of rebounds going the other way, so I would only use this tactic if you're up and can spare a few possessions.
I do this all the time. I grabbed 30 boards in a triple threat game last season
@cantgetright another way to get rebounds is go to the wing call pick and roll witht the ball handler run to the corner and tap x to do a step back and just take a bad shot the hedge defender and the other defender will both bite leaving the lane open to grab the board
I use to do this for like 50 boards
run to the corner and tap x to do a step back
My player would've stepped out of bounds immediately lmaooooo
assign him to guard the worst 3PT shooter
Whoever I leave wide open in TT becomes a sniper, I get heat check Dwight Howard’s raining when I leave him wide open, it’s almost funny.
Use heat checks too
