Best Answer

In Basketball, a foul shot taken from the foul line is worth 1 point. A field goal, shot in normal play is worth 2 points. A shot taken outside the 3-point line will earn the successful attempt three points.

In basketball, when a person is fouled (think of it being pushed or shoved away) on the shot, he goes to the free throw line and takes either 2 free throws or 3 depending on where he shot. A free throw line is 15 feet away from the basket. If the player makes it then you get 1 point.
