Catch bad pass

When your teammates pass you the ball, you and your defender both want to catch the ball. Bad or tight passes are passes in which you have to go towards the ball.

If the pass is slow or off target you must make sure that you beat the defense to the ball. To insure that you are the first one to the ball don’t stand and wait for the ball to get there, you have to go to the ball. Running to to the ball makes you catching the ball alot quicker which makes it harder for the defense to intercept.
If the ball is going into the hands of a defender, then cut in front of him to catch the pass.
