How to block in NBA 2K24

Blocking in NBA 2K24 is incredibly simple. Here is how to attempt to block a shot.

Xbox: Press Y

The process of blocking a shot in NBA 2K24 isn’t a difficult one, but timing is crucial if you are to prevent your opponent from registering a bucket. Arrive too early and you’re likely to fall victim to a fake shot, whilst arriving too late will allow your opponent to arch their shot over your attempted block.

It goes without saying, but you also need to make sure you’re sizing up your opponent correctly. Your 6’2” point guard isn’t going to have much luck in the paint against a 7’2” centre, so don’t even think about it.

Finally, you want to consider your positioning prior to attempting a block. You need to be within close proximity of the shooter in order to give yourself the best chance of success on the defensive end.

That is everything that you need to know about how to block a shot in NBA 2K24.
