It depends on where you are when you shoot it. If your feet are behind the three point line, then the jump shot is worth 3 points if your feet are on or in front of the three point line then the jump shot is worth 2 points.

The amount of points varies.

You can get anywhere between 1 and 3 points.

1 point:

If you are fouled while shooting you are sent to the free throw line. Each one of these shots counts for one point each.

2 points: any shot other than a free thow made inside of the three point line is 2 points. That includes jumpshots, layups, and dunks

3 points: any shot taken outside of the 3 point line.
