Alley-Oop is a movement mechanic in NBA 2k22 that players can execute between 2 players in the team. In Alley-Oop, one player throws the ball in the air and the other catches it and tries to put it in. This rewards a few extra points if done correctly. This guide shows how you can do an Alley-Oop in NBA 2k22.
NBA 2K22: How to Perform Alley-Oop
To perform Alley-Oop, you first need to prepare your character for it by pressing the triangle button twice on PlayStation. On an Xbox console, you can prepare your character by pressing the Y button twice. You can choose the receiver with the left stick on both consoles.
The next thing you need to do is ask for it by pressing the triangle button twice on PlayStation and go to the hoop. Similarly, on Xbox, we need to press the Y button twice while cutting through the defensive players and going to the rim.
Now, you will have to run the Alley-Oop pass by pressing the square button on the PlayStation. You should be considerate of keeping the right stick in the direction in which you are receiving the Alley-Oop. For an Xbox console, you need to press X, or just hold the right stick on your controller in the direction you are going to receive Alley-Oop from.
You should keep in mind that you need a good passer and a good pitcher to pull this off. If the path is clear for the pitcher that is a complimentary spot for your team, and you must keep your timing and angle straight to perform a wonderful Alley-Oop.
