In the NBA, the three-point line is composed of two lines, parallel to and 3 feet (0.91 m) from the sideline, and a circular arc (centered on the basket) of roughly 120 degrees, which intersects the parallel lines 14 feet from the baseline. [2] The distance of the arc is 23 feet, 9 inches (7.23 m) from the basket. The distance from the line to the basket varies near the sidelines, and is exactly 22 feet (6.71 m) from the basket at its closest point which is 5 feet, 3 inches (1.6 m) from the base line, along an imaginary line parallel to the base line and through the center of the basket

How many point do you earn if the puck goes in the basketball net?

In basketball, there is no "puck". You play with a basketball. In basketball, you can either get 1, 2, or 3 points. When you are shooting a free-throw and make it, you get 1 point. When you are inside the 3 point line and you shoot the ball and make it, you get 2 points. And finally, when you are outside the 3 point line you get 3 points.
