I don't understand basketball terminology

Watching game 3 of the Finals from my DVR tonight.  Jeff Van Gundy describes Russell Westbrook's pull up foul line jumper:

That's a "make or miss" shot.

Huh.  Are there other kinds of shots?  Maybe "make or get the offensive rebound" shots?  If so, James Harden should attempt more of those and fewer of the "miss or miss badly" shots he's been putting up.
