our **basketball true shooting calculator** is designed to evaluate a player’s shooting efficiency by considering all shot types: **field goals**, **three-pointers**, and **free throws**.

Player A scored 25 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field, including 2-of-5 from three-point range, and made 7-of-8 free throws.

**To calculate their TS%:**

**Gather the necessary data:**

- Points scored: 25
- Field goal attempts (FGA): 15
- Free throw attempts (FTA): 8

**Apply the formula:** TS% = Points / (2 *(FGA + 0.44* FTA)) * 100

**Perform the calculation:**

TS% = 25 / (2 * (15 + 0.44 * 8)) * 100

= 25 / (2 * (15 + 3.52)) * 100

= 25 / 37.04 * 100

≈ 67.50%

**Player A’s true shooting percentage for this game is approximately 67.50%.**

## Basketball True Shooting Percentage Formula

The formula for calculating true shooting percentage (**TS%**) is:

**TS% = Points / (2 ***(FGA + 0.44* FTA)) * 100

Where:

Points= Total points scoredFGA= Field Goal AttemptsFTA= Free Throw Attempts

**Calculating TS%:**

`TS% = (20 / (2 × (15 + 0.44 × 6))) × 100 = (20 / (2 × (15 + 2.64))) × 100 = (20 / 35.28) × 100 ≈ 56.69%`

The formula is: TS% = (Points Scored) / (2 × (Field Goal Attempts + (0.44 × Free Throw Attempts)))

Where:

Points Scored= 20Field Goal Attempts= 15Free Throw Attempts= 6

Plugging in the values: TS% = (20) / (2 × (15 + 0.44 × 6)) = (20) / (2 × (15 + 2.64)) = (20) / 35.28 = 0.5669 ≈ 56.69%

The

True Shooting Percentagefor a player with 20 points scored, 15 field goal attempts, and 6 free throw attempts is approximately 56.69%.

## What is True Shooting Percentage?

**True shooting percentage (TS%)** is an advanced basketball metric that assesses a player’s overall shooting efficiency. It incorporates two-point field goals, three-point field goals, and free throws, providing a more accurate reflection of a player’s scoring efficiency than traditional field goal percentages.

## How to Calculate True Shooting Percentage

To calculate true shooting percentage:

**Gather the necessary data:**

- Total points scored
- Field goal attempts (FGA)
- Free throw attempts (FTA)

**Apply the formula:** TS% = Points / (2 * (FGA + 0.44 * FTA)) * 100

**Perform the calculation:**

- Multiply FTA by
**0.44** - Add this result to FGA
- Multiply the sum by
**2** - Divide total points by this value
- Multiply by
**100**to obtain the percentage

## What is Considered a Good True Shooting Percentage?

**65% or higher:**Exceptional (typically achieved by efficient big men or elite shooters)**60-65%:**Excellent**55-60%:**Above average to good**50-55%:**Average to below average**Below 50%:**Poor efficiency

These benchmarks may differ in other leagues or levels of play, and it’s crucial to consider the player’s role and the team’s overall strategy when evaluating TS%.
