It would be helpful to see screencaps of your summary screen showing score and team stats.
But if you only got 265 for Offense and 171 for Defense, then it appears your scoring was a bit low (should be able to get 300+) and even though you won by wide margin, you have a very low Defense MT total (should be close to, or above 300).
I don’t know how you can win by 30 and get such a low Offense total while also getting a very low Defense total.
But on the Defensive side, I’m assuming you got very few Steals, Blocks, and aren’t getting the bonuses for Good Contest as often as you should.
I try to score at least 80 a game as a must go to for every game. I balance 3s vs 2s. 2k won’t let you hit too many 3s in a row but you can eat in the paint. Try to score in the post a little bit more ( post fades don’t count must be a drop step or post spin etc). Fast breaks,second chance points,and steals are your best friend.
Yes. You get +3 for a good shot contest. I think you might also get it when you also get a Block. But aside from playing good D, it’s why it’s important to always manually contest. You won’t get credit if the CPU does it for you, I believe.
Play solid defence and it will lead to fast break points, fast break score is +4, assist +4, made shot +4 and if you can dunk +3 (my numbers may be wrong) mix in some post scoring with some 3’s and you should be golden bro
I’m pretty sure they actually nerfed Fast Break this year down to +2. Assist is +5. Made shot, I believe, is +2 or +3 depending on 2- or 3-pointer, and Dunk is +3 while Layup is +2. Post Moves are +5.
You’re right: pushing to get Fast Breaks are huge for racking up MT. Not just for the +2, but more so because these can often lead to the +3/+2 finishing bonuses, usually will have a +5 Assist, due to the outlet pass, and take up very little shot clock time, by their nature. So Fast Break Assisted Dunk is 12 MT. And if it came off a Block/Steal, the you have that/Rebound, too.
There are times when you get two or three Blocks/Steals into Fast Break Assisted Dunks and while you were worried that you only had 230 MT with, like, 1:00 left in the 3rd quarter, within 30 seconds, you racked up like 70-90 MT.
That’s the multiplier bro, every good action gives you points ranging from 2-12. Stop them from scoring 3+ times you get “multiple defensive stops” worth 12 points, mix in a block for 4 and a steal for 4 with a rebound for 6 and those 3 defensive possessions gave you 26 points without any offense points
Nah man it’s cool i was in your boat for 2k17, you don’t seem like an idiot at all and everybody in here is always happy to help.
So depending on game level your multiplier will change. For rookie its .75, pro is 1, allstar is 1.25 and superstar is 1.5. At the end of the game if it’s on pro and you got 200 for offense and 200 for defence your score would be 400. Using the same numbers on all-star you would get 500, superstar 600 but it works both ways on rookie that score of 400 would only be worth 300 due to the .75 multiplier.
You also get bonuses for opponent strength, 5 3pointer attempts and 10 ft attempts.
