The ball is moved down the court toward the basket by passing or dribbling. Played with 5 players from each team.
The team with the ball is called the offense.
The team without the ball is called the defense. They try to steal the ball, make shots, steal and deflect passes, and catch rebounds.

When a team makes a basket, they score two points and the ball goes to the other team. If a basket, or field goal, is made outside of the three-point arc, then that basket is worth three points.

Ticket prices vary depending on where the game is played and where the seats are located exactly.
