Best Answer

a field goal worth 3 points because the shooter had both feet on the floor behind the 3-point line when he released the ball also counts if one foot is behind the line while the other is in the air.

It all depends on where you shoot from. If you shoot anywhere inside the 3 pointer line during play, it will be counted as a 2 pointer. However, if you shoot outside of the 3 pointer line, then its counted as a 3 pointer. If you are fouled and get the shot in from the free throw line, you get 1 point.
