A **Points Per Game (PPG) Calculator** is a tool used to determine the **average number of points** a player **scores per game** over a specific period.

Let’s say **LeBron James **scored **120 **points over **5 **games.

**His PPG would be:**

120 points ÷ 5 games = 24 PPG

This means LeBron averaged **24 points** in each game during that stretch.

## Points Per Game Calculation Formula

The formula for calculating PPG is:

PPG = Total Points Scored ÷ Number of Games Played

A player scores

450 pointsin30 games: PPG = 450 ÷ 30 =15 PPGAnother player scores

280 pointsin20 games: PPG = 280 ÷ 20 =14 PPG

## How do you calculate PPG in the NBA?

**Regular Season vs. Playoffs**: PPG is typically calculated separately for regular season and playoff games.**Minimum Games Requirement**: To qualify for official NBA statistical rankings, players must meet a minimum games played threshold.**Rounding**: NBA statistics are usually rounded to one decimal place.**Tracking Over Time**: PPG can be calculated for various time frames – per game, per month, per season, or career averages.**Adjusting for Minutes Played**: Sometimes, analysts use “**Points Per 36 Minutes**” to account for differences in playing time.

**Let’s say a team scored a total of 8,520 points over 82 games in a season. **

**To calculate their average PPG:**

- Total points scored = 8,520
- Games played = 82
- PPG = 8,520 ÷ 82 = 104.0

The team averaged 104.0 points per game that season
