What are some basketball statistics?

One of the main ways a National Basketball Association coach evaluates a player’s game performance is by efficiency, which is determined by using the formula: (points + rebounds + assists + steals + blocks) - (field goals attempted - field goals made) + (free throws attempted - free throws made) + turnovers.

Field goal percentage (FG percent) is determined by the field goals made (FGM) divided by the field goals attempted (FGA). Finally, the free throw percentage (FT percent) is determined by the number of free throws made (FTM) divided by the free throws attempted (FTA).
