Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball through the defender's hoop while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop.

How to Play

01. All you need to play basketball is a ball of the appropriate size and a net that it fits through, set at a challenging-enough height.

02. Break into two teams
- For a full-court game, basketball is played by two teams of five players each.

03. Score points by shooting the ball through the hoop
- In basketball, an offensive player can score between one and three points with a shot, depending on where the shot is taken on the floor.

04. Move the ball by dribbling or passing
- When you have the ball, you have to either be stationary, with one foot planted on the floor to pivot from, or you have to be dribbling the ball, bouncing it up and down on the floor.
