The only real fix Iíve found that helps the last few days is editing the teams defensive settings in game, change the hedge defenders assignments a long with pick n roll defense assignments

Re: Evidence why next gen pick and roll and help defense needs lots of work still

After tearing my hair out working on this for the last week, I found the fix. And it's beyond stupid how simple it is, after all the other things I tried.

To fix the hedge defender being an idiot: Set the "Play Passing Lanes" tendency to 0.

That's it. That's the fix.

Any other tweak to any other defense-related slider will just fine-tune how you want the game to play, but none of them will actually affect the hedge defender logic that we're trying to fix. Tweaking the movement sliders will again fine-tune the game to how you want it to play, but is not necessary to fix this issue (though realistic movement will make it much more difficult for quick dribblers to just run around the defense in general). EVERY OTHER SLIDER can be left at whatever setting you want, it doesn't matter. Just set "Play Passing Lanes" to 0 and the vast majority of the time the hedge defender will react to the pick as if he actually realizes he's playing basketball.

Setting "Play Passing Lanes" to any higher setting will (the vast majority of the time) result in the hedge defender over-reacting away from the pick or just standing in place as you run around him, though he will be slightly quicker to react to the dribbler the closer this setting is to 0. Honestly, I don't see any benefit to increasing this slider. Just leave it at 0 and you're good to go.

Play passing line at 0 could reflect in less intercept ball from the defense?
Iím asking but the sense of that slider is to set the tendency of stealing ball from wrong pass.

Iíve got help Defense and defensive awareness at 100 and with passing lanes at 0 the roll man is now money. Heís open all the time. I think we just need to get a patch for the AI.

doing that has made the biggest difference for me but it still doesnt completely fix. I'm hoping that in combination with the play passing lane fix it will work even better but I cant try till I'm home from work.
