An Introduction to Advanced Basketball Statistics:
Understanding Possession Estimation and the Factors that Control Efficiency
From Burnt Orange Nation
Download source here: ' An Introduction to Advanced Basketball Statistics: Understanding Possession Estimation and the Factors that Control Efficiency '
"... Historically, the way we tend to evaluate basketball teams is to look at per game statistics. For instance, we might look at the Big 12 statistics from last season and conclude Nebraska, who allowed 60.5 points per game, and Texas A&M, who allowed 61.3 points per game, were both better defensively than Texas, who allowed 62.2 points per the game.
The chief problem with this sort of analysis is that it ignores the pace at which these teams play. Texas A&M played at an extremely slow pace last season, averaging 62.2 possessions per game. Nebraska played slightly faster, averaging 63.6 possessions per game.
Of these three schools, Texas played at the fastest tempo, averaging 66.9 possessions per game. Nebraska and Texas A&M were among the slowest-paced teams in all of Division I last year, whereas Texas' pace was pretty close to the Division I median of 66.6 possessions per game. ..."
"... If you are convinced that possessions, and not games, ought to be the appropriate way to normalize basketball statistics, then you are ready for the next step. Team performance on offense and defense should be measured as points per possession.
It is useful to break points per possession up a bit further, in order to isolate various elements of offensive (or defensive) performance. In the coming months I will write about some of the ways in which I like to do this, but for now, we will focus on a fairly simple split. Here is an equation ..."
"... Essentially, true shooting percentage is the points scored per shooting opportunity divided by two. The number is divided for two so that it looks like a shooting percentage. Typically many teams and players will have TS% between about 0.5 and 0.6, so the scale is similar to what it common for more traditional field goal percentages.
The problem with true shooting percentage is semantic -- it isn't actually a percentage. For example, TS% can be greater than 1. It can be as high as 1.5. The 0.5 prefactor seems kind of pointless, other than the effort to make this look like a field goal percentage. ..."
"... Then if we take the difference between Texas' ORB - TO and Arizona's ORB - TO, we get an estimate of the difference in shooting opportunities between each team. By this calculation, Arizona is expected to be +2 in FGA + 0.475 x FTA. They were actually +1.
In this case, the discrepancy comes from the fact that Texas had one extra possession than Arizona did in the first half of the game.
Both teams had the same number of possessions in the second half of the game. Note that sometimes this estimate will be off because it is just an estimate, but in this case we have an assignable cause. ..."
