It is called making a basket. Two points are awarded if a player makes a basket from within the three point arc... and three points are awarded if a player makes a basket from beyond the three point arc.
How many points is a basket made inside the three point line
Terry Gannon in 1986
No, it is impossible to score five points in one basket since the farthest possible shot is beyond the three-point line, which only scores you three points.
== == Chris Ford, of the Boston Celtics, made the first three-point shot in NBA history on October 12, 1979.
Foul shot(free throw)- one point per basket Field Goal- two points When you are behind the 3 point line- 3 points
you get 3 points in one basket when you shoot the ball outside the big semi-circle in the court. Three points can happen not only by this mechanism. when you are shooting the ball and you get fouled, if the ball goes in, you will get a call "foul in" that means your basket counts. and you will get 1 attempt at the free throw line for 1 point.
A basket that counts for 2 points is also known as a field goal, the player is closer to the basket than the three-point line. In December of 1891, Canadian Dr. James Naismith created the game and score system.
They don't give 3 points for a field goal. Basketball gives you three points when you make a basket at the three point line the three point line was added after the 1978/1979 season.
The only way you can get three points is to score a 3-pointer, by shooting and getting a basket from behind the 3-point line.
A Basket :) Beyond the three point Arch= 3 Points Inside the three point Arch= 2 Points Free Throws= How many you shoot, and how many you make
