i know this is Live 09 thread but this play is back in Live 10! Thank you EA! It's called 2up! there are other variations (5X etc) which is the same as the original Double High play in the earlier NBA live years!
i like this play a lot better since when you start the play you will have plenty of options depending on what the defense gives you. This play really works and i can beat Superstar (offline) with just this play/strategy. I have tried this a few times as well online but usually is not available if i'm not the host and if i do get it up, it's a nice variation or go-to play for an easy 2 or 3.
Option 1: Just wait for the screen and when the on ball defender get's stucked in the pick you have the clear path to drive to the basket or open jumper. And if the wing guys help out while you drive you have the open 3 on each wing depending on which side is open
Option 2: The defense goes through the pick, now you have you PF/C cutting to the middle of the lane for an easy 2. Take note the other big (say PF) goes on top while the other slides towards the rim (C), so if it's a shooter (ie. R.Lewis, R.Wallace, Frye, Okur, Bonner) you have another option on top.
This play is perfect for the Magic, Suns, Spurs, Celtics to name a few. The nice thing is you can call the play with any guys..so let's say i'm the Magic..i hand the ball to Carter, call 2Up, and wait for Howard for the pick and Carter will have a higlight dunk waiting, pull up for a 3 or a jumper..and depending on the how the defense react you have Pietrus, JWill/jameer on the wing and Rashard on top..
