How do you score and win the game basketball?

When you have the basketball, you dribble across the court, and shoot into the hoops (Or you can pass). If you do that without a foul, you get two points. If you shoot from the three-pointer line, you get three points. You can also do free shots, but you'll need to receive a foul for that. If you make one, you get a point, make both, you get two. The team with most point wins!
