Statistician's Digest: A Basketball Playoffs Scoring Efficiency Equation

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
A Basketball Playoffs Scoring Efficiency Equation

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
" Does the eBA System have a specific method or basic efficiency equation in terms of scoring or Points per Possession for the Playoffs time ? "

Which is the real question:

- we are trying to compare the playoffs numbers with the regular
. season numbers ...

- we are trying to analyze the effect of playing the same opponent for many consecutive games ... or

- we are trying to analyze points per possession ?

After the regular season, playoffs time, the fatigue have an effect upon shooting more than any other stat and effective shooting % moves downward and lower.

The best players on both teams play more minutes and marginal players disappear in essence either in effectiveness or actual court appearance.

A determined playoffs series may have differences with the regular season or from series to series, no not differences at all.

Two determined high-scoring teams may give an enlarged production at all the statistics categories, but the possession value does not have direct relation with any "playoffs conversion" rate.

It is possible to apply during the playoff the following experimental formula:


Shooting Efficiency= Total Points / { FGA + ( ( FTA + Bonus FTA ) / 2 }

Basketball Playoffs has become an insatiable American passion. Whether in a back yard, a blacktop urban playground, or an indoor stadium, people love playing and watching this game.
Photograph: Sports Score Live

Rates or efficiencies should be calculated for each series, and weighted differently as the playoff round progress.

An equation must be based on the players who are analyzed against the opposition and are only considered in the context of that one series.

Resuming this topic and according to eBA archives of 10 past years in the playoffs series, for the finals players tend to do worse than their regular season production/efficiency and rates tend to be around 91.4 % of what they were in the regular season, with conversion rates of 98%, 96%, 94% and 92% which could be alternatively applied for each of 4 rounds of playoffs.

You can also study the following Non Scoring Modified Tendex from the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System:

{[ Rebounds + 1.25*Assists + 1.25*Steals + Blocks - 1.25*Turnovers
- Missed Field Goals - (Missed Free Throws /2) - Personal Fouls /2] / Minutes / Game Pace }

Miroslav Klose Reaches Fair Play Summit



Miroslav Klose Reaches Fair Play Summit

The legend of Miroslav Klose grew by leaps and bounds Wednesday. The Lazio striker used his hand to score a goal, then spectacularly convinced the referee to disallow it.

The sport of soccer is better off because of it. Klose's heroics came in the pressure cooker that is Italy's Serie A. In the fifth minute of visiting Lazio's game against Napoli, Klose redirected a corner kick into the goal with his hand. In fact, he might have been trying to move his hand out of the way when the ball struck it.

Napoli players protested furiously, while some Lazio players celebrated. What happened next will cement his good name around the world. In the mystical spirit of fair play, Klose spoke to the referee and convinced him to disallow the goal.

It earned him the respect of players on both sides (as if he didn't already have it) and he was rightfully applauded by fans at Napoli's San Paulo Stadium. Klose, 34, has bagged so many goals for club and country, he probably didn't want any cheap ones on his resume.

His glittering international career includes 64 goals for Germany, including the 14 he's scored at three FIFA World Cups -- good for second-most all time. The German marksman has also scored more than 185 goals for four clubs in two countries.

Unfortunately, that would be the high point of Lazio's game, as Klose's team suffered a 3-0 drubbing.

Basketball Statistics Questions: Throw-in Crossing the Plane & Video Case Study

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions:
Throw-in Crossing the Plane Statistical Tracking

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
... Some question about throws-in rule and statistical registration:

A1 is awarded a throw-in. While holding the ball, A1's hands crosses the plane of the boundary line so that the ball is above the in-bounds area. B2 catches the ball that is in A1's hands or taps the ball out of A1's hands.

How we rule this situation and register the statistics according to the eBA Basketball Statistics System Book ? ...


Commentary About the Rule=
Before a thrower-in has released the ball on a throw-in, it is possible that the throwing-in motion could cause that player's hand(s) with the ball to break the plane of the boundary line separating the in-bounds area from the out-of-bounds area. In such situations, it continues to be the responsibility of the defending player to avoid interfering with the throw-in by contacting the ball while it is still in the hands of the thrower-in.

eBA Basketball Statistical Registration=
B2 has interfered with the throw-in, thereby delaying the resuming of the game. A warning shall be given to B2 and communicated to coach B and this warning shall apply to all team B players for the remainder of the game. The repetition of a similar action by any team B player may result in a technical foul.
In the described case in the question, no statistical registration is made, but if it was called a technical foul, a UNFORCED TURNOVER is charged against the offender player in the category "TF".

Mar 8, 2014; Durham, NC, USA; Duke Blue Devils students taunt North Carolina Tar Heels guard Leslie McDonald (2) as he throws the ball inbounds to a teammate in their game against the Duke Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium. In this Photograph by Mark Dolejs from USA TODAY Sports presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .
Photograph: by Mark Dolejs from USA TODAY Sports

About the Video Analysis=
One commentary about the rules to resume this topic: the defense may not break the plane of the line, if so they will receive a warning and then a technical foul. If the defense breaks the plane and touches the ball or the player BEFORE THE BALL IS RELEASED across the plane the penalty is a technical foul. When we analyze a basketball game we must have the video analysis help to decide the responsibility of each one of the player in this situation.

All the terms in this answer are explained widely at The eBA Basketball System Book and in eBA Clinic ONLINE.

Video Case Study:
Basketball 3-pointer annulled because 24 seconds

"... Legal 3-pointer annulled: this is the 1998 NBA Finals Game Six - Chicago Bulls 87 Utah Jazz 86. Here you have two cases of shooting over the end of the 24 seconds: in the second case of the clip there is no problem of register. But in the first I have doubts: the basket was annulled but the replay shows that the shooting was legal: what's the register of this play ? We penalize the player with a missed field goal ?

How the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System register this play ? ..."

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics: Who owns the basketball team statistical data?

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
Who owns the basketball team statistical data?

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
When the statistician ends his work and send the game analysis report: is the statistician owed a right to use the data for publication purposes ?

First of all, at the early stages of the season, and in order to eliminate doubt from the beginning of the statistical employment, a document of agreement between the basketball team's manager and the statistician certainly would make clear and more comprehensible each party's respective obligatory preconditions and rights.

If the agreement involves a total permission, we´ll have no any problems.

Now, when the statistician works for a basketball team, data ownership clearly belongs to them.

Professional Basketball Player Performance Trends
Image: eBA System

If it was agreed at the pre-season and contractually that the basketball team owns the data, and the statistician is partially allowed to use the data for publication purposes, obviously there is an obligation to hide the basketball team's and institution's identities to protect their rights to anonymity in accordance with this right of limited use.

In any case, the head coach and the manager should be informed of such intended use of data and supplied with a copy of the final written research.

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
Points per Field Goal Attempt Formula: Concept & Application

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
Points per Field Goal Attempt Formula: Concept & Application

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
In order to measure how strictly correctly a player or team is shooting we need statistics, and if possible a creative analysis of those basketball statistics.

Statisticians most often use the field goal percentage ( FG% ) to do it, but the added bonus of the three-point shot, for instance, isn't reflected in field goal percentage, and the ability to get to the free-throw line (where the points come much easier) is ignored as well.

"Points per Shot Attempt" (PSA): It's a stat designed to reflect the basics of good shooting: getting the greatest number of points from the fewest number of attempts.

Points per shot attempt is simply points divided by shot attempts . Figuring shot attempts is like this: Add field goal attempts plus "Up to the Line" (for 2 or 3 free-throws).

In case of analysis of another team and if you can't know how many times the player or the team reached the line, use (0.4 * FTA) instead.

Points per Field Goal Attempt Formula
Photograph: 20 Minutos.es

PSA = Points / (Up to the Line + FGA)

Last years NBA league PSA average was something around 1.039 points per shot attempt, so by averaging, by example, 1.133 points per attempt, an average team gains a full point with every ten shots.

PSA is just as handy for rating individual players as it is for teams. Occasionally a player will break into the top ten who shoots nothing but dunks, but mostly it's the long shooters who are at the top of an individual PSA list.

This formula, with another fields formulas, are integrated in the 2nd. exposition of the Basketball Statistics Registration eBA Course: "Statistics Formulas Revision", at eBA ANNUAL CLINICS ONLINE.

Forecasting NBA Basketball Playoff Outcomes Using the Weighted Likelihood
by Feifang Hu & James V Zidek

"... Predicting the outcome of a future game between two sports teams poses a challenging problem of interest to statistical scientists as well as the general public. To be effective such prediction must exploit special contextual features of the game. In this paper, we confront such features and address the need to:

(i) use all relevant sample information;
(ii) reflect the home game advantage.

To do so we use the weighted likelihood. Finally we demonstrate the value of the method by showing how it could have been used to predict the 96/97 NBA playoff results. Our weighted likelihood-based method proves to be quite accurate. ..."

"... This paper demonstrates the use of the weighted likelihood (WL) to predict the winner of National Basketball Association (NBA) final games and applies the method in each of the games played in the 1996-97 finals between the two top ranked teams, the Chicago Bulls and the Utah Jazz. However, as we try to indicate, the WL has much wider applicability inside as well outside the domain of sports.way dunker created by a teammate’s steal, offensive rebound, and or perfect outlet pass? ..."

"... The genesis of our work lies in two statistical problems encountered in sports:
(i) the prediction of the outcome of a future game between two specified sports teams;
(ii) the assessment of the accuracy of this prediction.

Since typically these two teams will not have met more than just a few times in the given season, little direct information will be available to the forecaster. The consequent small sample size will make naive predictions inaccurate and the associated prediction intervals excessively large. ..."

1996-97 Chicago Bulls Championship: #1 ~ Randy Brown: #30 ~ Jud Buechler; #35 ~ Jason Caffey; #18 ~ Bison Dele; #9 ~ Ron Harper; #23 ~ Michael Jordan; #25 ~ Steve Kerr; #7 ~ Toni Kukoc; #13 ~ Luc Longley; #00 ~ Robert Parish; #33 ~ Scottie Pippen; #91 ~ Dennis Rodman; #8 ~ Dickey Simpkins; #6 ~ Matt Steigenga, #34 	Bill Wennington In this photograph from Operation Sports presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

"... Usually in sports, the outcome of any one game derives from the combined efforts of two teams that have seldom played each other before. Yet these games yield the only direct sample information available about the relative strength of these two teams.

At the same time, each of these teams will have played many games against other teams thereby generating relevant (although not direct) sample information. The predictive probability of a win in the next game between these two teams, should combine both kinds of information ..."

"... Based on the probabilities and the confidence intervals of Table 1, we can find the probabilities with which the Bulls (and Jazz) will win the Final by Game 4, 5, 6 or 7.

Also we can calculate the total win probabilities for the Bulls against the Jazz based on its home and away win probabilities given by each of the three estimation methods.
Confidence intervals for these win probabilities may be obtained as well.

In Table 2 where the results are reported, and in the tables that follow, that interval is obtained for any pair of teams say A and B from the 95% asymptotic intervals for A’s home- and A’s away-win-against-B probabilities.. ..."

"... The method in this paper provides guidelines for the development of a prediction strategy. Its implementation, more specifically the construction of weights entails the incorporation of any special features that may obtain when the game is played.

For example, one might need to incorporate the knowledge that certain key players cannot play in that game."

To be more precise, we fitted a logistic model using the software R with the response variable being 1 or 0 according as the outcome of any game during the season was a visitor or home victory. We used dummy variables to represent visitor and home teams in each game throughout the season.

Thus for example, BullsV=1 and Super-sonics=1, all other dummies being 0, would mean those two teams were playing for that particular game, the visitors being the Bulls. For each of the factors, ‘visitor’ and ‘home’ we represented by the dummies in this way, we arbitrarily chose the 76er’s as the baseline team.

Thus, in effect, the fitted intercept, suitably transformed, provides an estimate of the likelihood of a ‘1’ in the purely hypothetical situation where the 76er’s played themselves at home as the visitors.

The coefficients for the remaining dummies represent the deviations from the 76er’s performance for each of the other teams depending on whether they were playing at home or awa ..." Read more ...

Va' pensiero Riccardo Muti speaking about Italian culture, Opera di Roma

Muti said : yes, viva Italia... But, as we are in house, quite at home, let us speak together.
"Va pensiero", in old days, was a political symbol. I'm not a politician but I can say that if our culture goes on being slain, our Italia will be "si bella e perduta". So, as the choir has beautifully sung it, we should join them to sing another time "Va, pensiero !"

Basketball Statistics Questions: Keeping Stats ~ Downward Flight Ball Interference

Basketball Tracking Stats Referred Questions:
Keeping Stats ~ Downward Flight Ball Interference

Basketball Registering Stats Referred Questions
... After a shot for a goal by A1, the ball is in the air when it is touched in its upward flight by B2 ( or A2 ).

In its downward flight to the basket the ball is touched by B3 ( or by A3 ).

Which is the game rule and the statistical register IN EACH CASE according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis ? ...

Rule Fundamental= If, after a field goal attempt, a player touches the ball while it is in its upward flight , all restrictions related to goal tending and interference shall apply.

Game Rule= The contact of B2 ( or A2 ) with the ball in its upward flight is legal and does not change the status of a shot for a goal . However, the subsequent contact with the ball in its downward flight by A3 or B3 is a violation .

Syracuse's Baye Keita bocks the shot of West Virginia's Deniz Kilicli in the final seconds of the game at the Carrier Dome. In this Photograph from syracuse.com presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis
Photograph: syracuse.com

eBA Statistical Tracking= In the case of B3, two or three points are awarded to team A, without any record against B3 - this possession ends with the basket. In the case of A3's violation, the ball is awarded to team B for a throw-in, with an 'Unforced Turnover' record against A3.

About the Applicability of a Statistical System for High School Basketball
& the Basketball Training Video in our Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
About the Applicability of a Statistical System for High School Basketball

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
In our eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis Clinics, the participants always ask about the applicability of our statistical system for high school basketball.

It is inevitable: last years high school students get scouters attention ! We read in one of our articles in the Scouting section an appeal to the high school students "to be sure to enjoy their High School Basketball experience, and sell-out for the team !

Some student/athletes over-emphasize the recruiting process and end up under-achieving because of the excessive pressure they put on themselves to impress recruiters, an over-emphasis upon statistics, or saving themselves for college. Work hard, hustle, and play your game to help your team!"

It is clear, from the name of our system and the site, that we are working for "basketball professional teams". I don't think that a complete statistical system must be applied in the High School, but about the fact that the high school coach must keep basics statistics we have no any doubt, specially on the last years.

....work with your players on basketball fundamentals !

And its use and results must be emphasized in the coaching program: that's mean, the use of the stats to help the player to improve himself in the rights areas and to assist the coach in the programming of his trainings more accurately.

Perhaps the clinics participants intended to ask if all this set of complex formulas of analysis are necessary at high school.... Please hear to this old basketball coach and statistician analyst: all the time you can.... work with your players on basketball fundamentals !

The future NBA Coach of your actual players will give, however secretly, the credit to You....!

He has dominated in the Top 16 before and FC Barcelona center Ante Tomic did so again in Round 5 with a near-perfect performance that has earned him the bwin MVP of the week distinction. Tomic led his team in six different statistical categories during Barcelona's tipoff-to-buzzer 89-72 victory over visiting Zalgiris Kaunas in Group E on Friday. In almost 25 mostly flawless minutes, he scored 16 points by making 6 of 7 two-point shots and all 4 of his free throws. Tomic also had 9 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks while drawing 5 fouls, adding to a performance index rating of 34 that was the best on a winning team this week.

Kobe Bryant is not as Good as Michael Jordan -- So What?
by David Friedman ~ in our Friday Press & Video Clippings

Friday Press Clippings:
Kobe Bryant is not as Good as Michael Jordan--So What?
By David Friedman

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From 20 Second Timeout
By David Friedman
Download source here: ' Kobe Bryant is not as Good as Michael Jordan
So What? ' by David Friedman

"... Kobe Bryant scored 26 points during the Lakers' 100-94 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday December 14 to move past Michael Jordan into third place on pro basketball's career scoring list.

One might think that this accomplishment would be an occasion to reflect upon Bryant's consistency and longevity but while some observers have taken that approach many commentators go to great lengths--either via anecdotes or via statistics--to "prove" that Jordan is not just better than Bryant but that Jordan is much better.

The very fact that the comparison is often made--even if it is just done to belittle Bryant--says a lot. ..."

"... The way that some people compare Jordan and Bryant is interesting. The best case for Jordan versus Bryant would focus on Jordan's efficiency and Jordan's performances during his 6-0 run in NBA Finals (Bryant has one more Finals appearance than Jordan but also two more Finals losses).

Of course, field goal percentages in general were higher during Jordan's era, the rules and style of play were much different and Jordan's overall numbers benefited from him playing college ball before immediately becoming an NBA starter while Bryant jumped straight to the NBA from high school and thus needed some on the job training as a bench player. ..."

"... While some media members and fans may not understand or appreciate the rough edges of Bryant's personality, Kevin Durant, the 2014 NBA MVP, respects Bryant's approach and refutes the idea that good players do not want to play with Bryant:

Excuse my language, but that's (expletive). I want to play with a winner every single night, especially somebody who wants to win that bad, who works that hard, who demands a lot, who raises up your level.

I'd want to play with a guy like that every day...(His style) may make people uncomfortable, how he acts and just how he approaches the game, but I love that type of stuff. I think (the accusation) is BS. ..."

Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls talks to Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers about leadership and potential to succeed in the game of basketball In this Photograph from Flickr presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .
Photograph: Flickr


"... Once one moves past comparing Bryant to Jordan and once one understands that any player with the right mindset would welcome the challenge and opportunity of playing with Bryant, one can focus on just how remarkable Bryant's current season is.

Forget for a moment his career-low field goal percentage and consider the fact that Bryant is a highly productive player in his 19th NBA season. Only three players in NBA history have even made it past their 19th season: ......"

"... In contrast, during the 2014-15 season Bryant is logging heavy minutes (35.4 mpg), his floor game is still excellent (5.1 rpg, 4.9 apg and 1.4 spg, numbers that are comparable to his career averages of 5.3 rpg, 4.8 apg and 1.4 spg) and he is scoring 24.6 ppg.

Bryant's field goal percentage (.372) is not good but he is remarkably productive and durable for a 19 year veteran who is coming off of two serious leg injuries. Bryant is in excellent shape and if his body holds up his field goal percentage will probably improve during the course of this season as he regains his game legs after being out of action for such an extended period.
..."

"... No, Kobe Bryant is not quite as good as Michael Jordan and, no, Kobe Bryant is no longer as efficient or dominant as he was during his prime--or even during his last healthy full season, when he was a legitimate MVP-caliber player averaging 25.5 ppg on .463 field goal shooting (including a career-high .510 from two point range) as a 17 year NBA veteran--but Bryant is the closest thing to Jordan that we have seen or are likely to see anytime soon. Bryant's former dominance and his remarkable, ongoing longevity should be celebrated. ..." Read more ...
