Default How to get better at pick up basketball?

When I play basketball by myself. I can shoot with 35%-45% accuracy both on regular FG and 3 point field goals. This includes stationary and off the dribble shots. I know for a fact I have a good shooting form (I have been told by people that I have a sweet stroke). I don't do any awkward looking movements with my legs or elbows. My hand placement is fine.

However once I play pick up basketball with 9 other people(total 10, 5 on 5) I am terrible. I keep hitting the rim. I can make steals, I am faster than everybody, I can shake off people with my fancy spin moves. Having so many other bodies hovering around does something to me.

Just can't make a shot. I average maybe 2 or 4 points whenever I play pick up.

What can I do to get better at pick up basketball? Do I practice my off dribble shooting more or should I do pick up basketball as much as possible(more frequently)
