The effective field goal percentage is a statistic used in basketball to take into consideration the additional difficulty of three-point shots and the extra points awarded for making a three-pointer.
Effective Field Goal Percentage, or eFG%, is calculated the following way:
(2pt FGM + 1.5 * 3pt FGM) / FGA
- 2 pt FGM = 2 points Field Goal Made
- 3 pt FGM = 3 points Field Goal Made
- FGA = Field Goal Attempts
