Boxscores are summing the points wrongly? 

Post#1 » by BarbaGrizz » Wed Dec 28, 2022 8:17 pm

So...this is on my mind every time that I check a G-League boxscore. It seems that the Points column are not matching with the sum of the points if you do it by using the FG/3PT/FT column.

Let´s use this game as example: https://gleague.nba.com/game/ont-vs-gli-2022200007?view=box-score

Moussa Diabate - FG: 8/12 (8 * 2 = 16), 3PT: 0/0 (0 * 3 = 0), FT: 3/9 (1 * 3 = 3) --> 16 + 0 + 3 = 19 pts, but in the boxscore is showing 21 pts
You can check the lines for Nate Darling, Kameron Edwards, Scoot Henderson, Cameron Young, Mojave King. Even players who hit 3PT shots are adding wrongly.

I´m going crazy or is there something I´m missing here?

In G-League these days before the Final 2min of game, all FTs are shoot-one to make X points (where X is the value of the shot taken by the player that was fouled).
