The Basketball Assist: the Most Controversial Statistic

About the Over-and-Back Violation and Actuality News Video
in our Thursday's Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Over-and-Back Violation ~ Concept & Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... A question about basketball rules... what is and how must we register the Basketball Over-and-Back Violation ? ... "

The Basketball Over-and-Back Violation is a violation that occurs when the offensive team has brought the ball into the frontcourt, returns the ball into the backcourt once it has positioned itself in the front court: the offensive team crosses the half court line and then crosses back into the back court.
As soon as a player from that team touches it in the backcourt, the ball is dead and is awarded to the opposing team for a throw-in.

American Rule: "Both feet and the ball" - if you are progressing from backcourt ( which includes the centre line ), you retain back court status until all three "points" are in the front court.
( This affects the over-and-back rule as well as the 8/10 second rule. )

European Rule: In FIBA, if you are touching the front court, you have front court status, but it is also possible to be simultaneously in both courts ( which is usually a problem if you have the ball ).

Examples:
1.1) A player is dribbling the ball in his backcourt . While continuing to dribble, the player steps with one foot into the front court.
Question: Has the 8/10 second count ended?
Answer: Yes. The player has front court status.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: Not yet.

1.2) Continuing the above example, the player lifts the foot in the front court and resumes dribbling entirely in the back court.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation?
A: Yes. Once a player progressing from the back court to the front court touches the front court with a foot or the ball, he must proceed into the front court with his next manoeuvre.
[Note: The action described above is legal in US rules. However, the 8/10 second count would still be proceeding.]

2.1) A player, whose team has the ball in the back court, receives a pass with one foot on either side of the centre line. He stands there for a few seconds (and does not pivot).
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: Not yet.

2.2) Continuing the above example, the player passes the ball to a teammate in the
a.-) front court, or b.-) backcourt. The receiving player touches the ball.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: No in a.-), Yes in b.-).

2.3) Instead of passing, as in 2.2), the player chooses to dribble towards the front court.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: No. As long as the player is progressing forward, the intent of the rule is being upheld.

3.0) A player holds the ball in the front court near the centre line. He 1) puts down a dribble, with the ball touching the centre line; or 2) steps partially on the centre line with one foot; or 3) brushes the ball against a teammate who is standing in the back court.
Q: Has the player committed an "Over-and-Back" violation ?
A: Yes in all cases. In 3.1), it is not a violation until the ball rebounds into the player's hand (or a teammate, for that matter). On a dribble, that will happen pretty quickly. In 3.2) and 3.3), the violation is called immediately. The centre line is considered to be part of the back court. [This case is the same in both FIBA and US rules.]

eBA Statistical Tracking= Finally, in all the cases, the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System register an Unforced Turnover, unless there is an opponent player influence – a close defense on the center line, by example – in this case a Forced Turnover is registered.

Friday Press Clippings: Do players "steal" rebounding opportunities ?

Friday Press Clippings:
Do players "steal" rebounding opportunities from teammates ?

Basketball Statistician's Friday Press Clippings
From Sabermetric Research
By Phil Birnbaum
Download source here: ' Do players "steal" rebounding opportunities from teammates? ' by Phil Birnbaum

"... In my previous post on rebounding, I promised to review some of the evidence supporting the "diminishing returns" hypothesis.

That's the theory that, in general, a player's individual rebound totals are not mostly a product of his own ability to snare rebounds, but, rather, predominantly because of his positioning on the court, or the role he is assigned on his team. ..."

"... Every extra rebound by the center results in 0.61 fewer rebounds by
teammates. ... "

"... That means that only 39 percent of center rebounds are "real", in the sense that the other team would have got them if not for the center's efforts.

If a center is (say) 20 rebounds above average for the season, then, on average, you should estimate that 12 of those rebounds would have been grabbed by a teammate anyway. ..."

Even the longest misses produce an average rebound distance that is only eight feet from the rim — not exactly a remote location. Part of this has to do with physics, part has to do with player spacing. Long-range shots generally occur when players are more spread out and there are fewer potential rebounders near the basket. <br />

"... The variance in team rebounds per game is LESS than the variance in rebounds per game by the center
alone ! ..."

"... Every additional rebound taken by the point guard reduces the rest of the team's rebound total by ... almost exactly one rebound: .96, to be exact. ..."

"... Taken at face value, that means that 24 out of 25 times, when a point guard gets a rebound, it's because the rest of the team deliberately leaves it for him! ..."

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 .

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.

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology: NBA Basketball Team Heat Map

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology: NBA Basketball Team Heat Map

eBA Encyclopedia Statistics Terminology
A heat map is a graphical representation of data where the values taken by a variable in a two-dimensional map are represented as colors. A very similar presentation form is a tree map. The term is also used to mean its thematic application as a choropleth map.

There are several different kinds of heat map:

• Web heat maps have been used for displaying areas of a Web page most frequently scanned by visitors.
• Biology heat maps are typically used in molecular biology to represent the level of expression of many genes across a number of comparable samples (e.g. cells in different states, samples from different patients) as they are obtained from DNA microarrays.
• The tree map is a 2D hierarchical partitioning of data that visually resembles a heat map.
• A mosaic plot is a tiled heat map for representing a two-way or higher-way table of data. As with treemaps, the rectangular regions in a mosaic plot are hierarchically organized. The means that the regions are rectangles instead of squares. Friendly (1994) surveys the history and usage of this graph.

basketball statistics Heat Map
Image: Information Aesthetics


Each NBA Basketball Team Heat Map shows who was coaching the basketball team that year, who were the top offensive players on the team, and by how many possessions each team won or lost over a 5 year period.

The overall goal of the charts is to be able to observe how time, coaches and players create point spread trends. Win percentage paints a narrow picture of how key personnel react to being put into different game situations. Year-over-year trends may help people see why their team is gaining or losing ground to the competition.

Each color is a point range that the team won or lost by in that year. Green to red bars are wins, while blues are losses. The lower area provides team information for each year. The right bar shows the average share of games won ad lost by each 3-point range over the last 5 year in the NBA.

One of the discovered insights is how certain teams and coaches are more likely to win by 3 or fewer points than they lose by the same margin.

An Ugly Personal Foul and Ejection after the Fight

"... There is no doubt about the rules: personal foul, ejection after the fight and free throws and possession for the opponent team. But my question is about the free throws called after the ejection: the turnover of # 42 is FORCED by the fight or UNFORCED as a technical foul ?

About the Basketball 'Assist-Turnover Ratio'
& the Basketball Training Video in our Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics

Monday's Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
About the Basketball 'Assist-Turnover Ratio'

Basketball Statistician's Sunday's Reflexions
Reading the 'assist-turnover ratio' from the box-scores, where a player's Ast/TO ratio start to help his team's offensive effectiveness ?

It is clear this level must would be higher for a point guard, but which are the statistical levels ?

Both statistics categories assists and turnovers matter when we note at the European Basketball eBA Archives that 7 of the top 10 AS/TO players are on playoffs teams and of course it does have a positive effect.

 • turnovers are a four factor category according to Dean Oliver's "Basketball on Paper" book;

 • assists suggest good passing and have positive impact on at least 2 of the other three (FG% and FT/FG);

Under the defensive pression of Bryant Mbamalu, freshman guard Denzel Valentine turns the ball over during the game against Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns on Nov. 25, 2012, at Breslin Center. The Spartans beat the Ragin’ Cajuns 60-63. Photograph by Natalie Kolb / The State News

 • TO do not help the offense, but Pts / Reb / Ast do;

 • assists have positive impact on offensive rebounding if the good passes creates a need for help defense;

 • the Basketball Statistics Analysis System separates out 'TO resulting from passes' in our calculations;

 • assists also allow some of the players to focus more on rebounding than looking for their shot;

 • from the eBA Archives top 5 teams on raw assists played the playoffs but 3 of the bottom 5 played too;

 • assists are not one of the four factors categories according to Dean Oliver's "Basketball on Paper" book;

 • as you can see below, the results are different if the PG is also a shooter and/or rebounder - all this things create turnover opportunities-, than if he just brings the ball up and passes;

 • you can play with the following numbers taking into account that this is only a new eBA Research and the break-even points may very well be different for each position:

Forget passing, which player is the best decision maker?3 In this image, Leonard’s shot probability is tied for the most likely outcome, even though by expected possession value it is his worst option; passing to anyone would be better. And these numbers can be tailored to individual players! With substantial sample sizes for individual players over the course of thousands of possessions, we do not have to settle for 'Shooters make X percent of open corner threes', we can specify that 'Player Y makes Z percent of open corner threes'. Which point guard best understands his teammates’ strengths and weaknesses, the differences between the starters and the subs, etc? Which big man has the most added value when getting the ball at the post?  <br />

Work your defender to get him out of position and finish ice-cold with the unblockable running hook shot.

1. Post up Establish contact with the defender in your back. Before you receive the pass make sure that you are in a low and powerful position to keep your balance.

2. Fake baseline Spin to the right to fake out your defender. When he shifts, youve got yourself some space to move.

3. Attack middle Now that you have your defender out of the way, turn round and attack the basket from the centre.

4. Running hook As you approach the basket, use your left arm and shoulder to protect the ball from any block attempts. Then as you take the shot; use your fingertips for extra control and shoot smoothly over your defender into the basket.

Basketball Block Shot Analysis & Statistics Tracking:
With or Without Ball Control is the Question!

Basketball Block Shot Analysis & Statistics Tracking:
With or Without Ball Control is the Question!

The answer was:
A1 goes up for a shot under the basket and the defensive player B2 knocks the ball in the hands of the shooter while they are both in the air, and there is no case of foul. A1 then let the ball fall to the ground before landing back on the court, gathers the ball up and makes a basket.

What is the call for the game and the statistical tracking in case of turnover?

Celtics small forward Paul Pierce has his shot blocked by Charlotte Bobcats power forward Tyrus Thomas during their NBA basketball game in Charlotte, North Carolina. Photo: REUTERS/Chris Keane

By definition (see our eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis Encyclopedia ) a blocked shot occurs when a defensive player successfully and legally deflects a shot from an offensive player by touching and rejecting the ball on its way to the basket, and before it has reached its highest point, in order to prevent from a field goal.

In order to be a legal action, the  block must occur while the shot is travelling upward. It it is heading downward when the defender hits it, it is ruled a goaltending and counts as a made basket.

We have an altered shot when a blocker changes the shooter shot causing the shooter to miss the basket.

Opponents' field goal percentage vary widely depending on which interior defender is close to the basket. Milwaukee's Larry Sanders is one of the most effective interior defenders in the league: opponents struggle to score when he is near the basket. This not the case with Boston Celtics' David Lee: when he is close to the basket, opponents score at very high efficiencies. (Click on the picture to read the full article by Adam E. Gallagher from  Tropics of Meta). In this Image: by Adam E. Gallagher from  Tropics of Meta presented by eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis Group.

If the ball is knocked out of the offensive players hands while they are in mid air, then they regain control once they have landed, this is legal.

If the ball is forced out during the time that the player is in the air, the player regains control (while in the air) and lands, it is a travel.
eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking=
Forced Turnover

If the offensive player returns to the floor, holding the ball, and the ball has never left his hands, one of two things are possible:

1) if the defensive player has only one hand on the ball, it is a travel against the offensive player.
eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking=
Forced Turnover.


2) if the defensive player has both hands on the ball it is a jump ball which will be resolved according with the alternate possession rule

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.

this chart provides a useful baseline that we can use to evaluate individual shooting performances. By overlaying players’ shot constellations, we can estimate the expected total number of points that an average NBA shooter would produce, based on where he took his shots; then we can compare a particular player’s actual yield against it.

This chart provides a useful baseline that we can use to evaluate individual shooting performances. By overlaying players’ shot constellations, we can estimate the expected total number of points that an average NBA shooter would produce, based on where he took his shots; then we can compare a particular player’s actual yield against it. (Click on the image to continue reading the article!)

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.

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.

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

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.
