Best Answer

In Basketball, there are about 3 different ways to score : free throws (1 point), field goals (2 points), and 3 pointers (nuff said). Anything made within the big arch is considered a field goal (jumper/J). If you are fouled (forceful physical contact which could inhibit a shot) while shooting a field goal, you get a free throw. You get two free throws (made from the mark right in front of the goal) if you miss the shot, and one if you made the shot, making a three point play. If you shoot a 3, and make it, and get fouled, you could have the chance at making arguably the most points in one play, 4 (a 3 pointer plus a free throw). That's enough for now.
