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.

What are some Differences between baseball and basketball?

Baseball has 9 players per side, a small ball thrown across a "plate" has to be hit by one opposing player with a "bat" who then runs counterclockwise to the corners of a diamond shaped group of "bases". The player scores 1 point by running to and stepping on the bases and stepping on the last base called "home plate". Basketball has 5 players per side, a larger ball is advanced toward a goal known as a "basket" by bouncing the ball off the floor while moving forward. The players throw the ball or "shoot" it at the basket. If the ball goes through the basket, 2 or 3 points are scored, depending on the distance from the basket. A penalty shot taken from the "free throw" line is worth 1 point. These are only very basic differences explaining the offense part of each game.
