How to catch a deflected pass

After seeing the ball bounce around between defenders all last night before finally hitting the ground, I decided to try to figure out how to catch a deflected pass. Fortunately, I was able to find a pretty descent solution.

When you’re close to the ball after a deflection, press your “swat” button. On PS3, this is your “X” button. On Xbox 360, this is your “A” button. Rather than actually swatting the ball, your player will put up both of his arms to make a basket-like catch. This is perfect place for your player’s hands to be because the ball is usually at waist height or lower after a deflection.

Before bringing this technique in-game, try it in practice mode by throwing up lob passes.
