Default Uncorresponding Stat Lines

Hey, this is something I noticed a bunch of times and always wondered..

Sometimes you check the boxscore and the stats line are not corresponding.

For example you'll see a player with

(13/17 FG) = 26 points + (5/8 3PFG) = 15 + (5/5 FT )= 5


This should equal 46 points but all the player is credited is 36..

This happens ALL the time.

Why?

8x2=16
5x3=15
5x1=5

16+15+5=36

it adds up.

a 3pt fg counts as a regular fg... so you have to subtract 3pt fg's from total fg's

but just to clear the confusion... the fg includes the 3-pointers... field goal is a shot attempted from anywhere on the floor (which excludes fts)... so its 8/9 from 2FG, 5/8 from 3FG and 5/5 FT...

Threes count as field goal attempts.

He's probably from Europe. In European boxscores there's a column for 2PT FG and another for 3PT

I like your name, but I have nothing to contribute to your thread that hasn't already been said, except for the fact that I like your name, but obviously mine is better.
