A Statistical Case for 3s

3s shooting percentages equivalent to 2s shooting percentages as per equal points scored. Thus taking 20 shots, the following is equal percentages:

3’s Equals 2’s
20% 12 points 30%
30% 18 points 45%
40% 24 points 60%
50% 30 points 75%
60% 36 points 90%
70% 42 points 105%

What does this mean? Ask the Miami Heat with a 27-game win streak and an NBA championship in 2012. The Heat scores a high percentage of 2-point shooting and second highest percentage scoring of 3-point shooting. This has impact implications for the next generation of basketball style play. Simply put, either a high percentage 2s or an open look 3s.
