Best Answer

The aim of Basketball is to score points by successfully shooting baskets at your opposing team's side. The team with the most baskets at the end of the game wins (After all quarters are played).

There are three-pointers and two-pointers given depending on the distance between you and the basket. A three-pointer is given only if you are outside of the 3-point line (In NBA this is around 20ft).

Anywhere inside the line based circle will be counted as a two-pointer. The occasional one point is given if you shoot a basket during a free throw.

There is however a timer of twenty-four seconds called a 'shot clock', pushing you to make a shot before time runs out or it'll be called a foul.
