How NBA 2K14 uses real-life plays in the video game world

Coach Nick shows how a number of teams in NBA 2K14 utilize the same plays of their real-life equivalents.

Coach Nick spent time at the 2K Headquarters checking out all the amazing NBA 2K14 game play. He went through the sophistication of the offensive play calling and how the players run the sets just like their real NBA counterparts do. There's everything from HORNS to The Loop to the Warriors' famed Elevator play.

Don't rely on a ton of isolation plays, as the defense has improved to the point where it's necessary to master play calling to truly excel in this game -- just like in the real world.

More breakdowns coming on other aspects of this game in lead up to its release on Oct. 1.
