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?

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