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.
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.
If its shot behind the three point line three inside the three point line is two.
a sot is worth 2 points
5 point people
If It's a foul shot and you get two tries, the first one, if you make it is worth one point, while the second try (when it's live off the rim) is worth two points! Hope I helped! This my first year in basketball but I know most of the rules, and regulations! :)
1 point for each shot.
A regular shot is worth two points. Any thing outside the three-point line is worth three points. Each foul shot is worth one point.
you get two free throws
2 points if it is a regular shot, and if you shoot it at the center line 3
A layup is when you are very close to the basket when you shoot the ball. I would say a player would be 3 feet or less from the basket when they shot a layup.
In basketball, a field goal (a shot made from outside the three-point line) is worth three points.
The most common shot in basketball is a layup.
