# True shooting percentage

In basketball, true shooting percentage is an APBRmetrics statistic that measures a player's efficiency at shooting the ball.[1] It is intended to more accurately calculate a player's shooting than field goal percentage, free throw percentage, and three-point field goal percentage taken individually. Two- and three-point field goals and free throws are all considered in its calculation. It is abbreviated TS%.

It is calculated by: ${\displaystyle TS\%={\frac {PTS}{2(FGA+(0.44\times FTA))}}}$x 100

where:

• PTS = points scored,
• FGA = field goal attempts,
• FTA = free throw attempts [2]
