Weekly Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
About the Basketball Second Chance Points

About Statistics & Statisticians... and Coaches that
As you surely noticed, the graduates at the concluded eBA CLINICS ONLINE rewrite, correct, enhance and update every thread at our Basketball Statistics Forums, as part of their practical work. Now we are merging all the unitary messages and similar ones in a common thread ( thus reducing the number of topics ): and the threads are categorized according to the eBA Basketball Analysis System contents, which is a more practical approach to the search at the Basketball Statistics Study Forums.

"....When a team shoots a high percentage from the floor, the number of second chance opportunities will distinctly be smaller, but the efficiency of the second chance possession is not a function of the number of second chance opportunities in a game.

Consequently, if teams have higher efficiency during second chances than first chances, a team's game efficiency, taking all the different aspects into account, is nearly always increased only because the offensive rebounding. By contrast, since that relationship appears alternating, the important objective of collecting and evaluating data is in the bonus possessions produced by the net offensive rebounding differential.

A well balanced team would be more effective on second chance points than on first chance points because, on most first chance possessions, the defense is accomplished and the offensive team must attack the set defense to find their scoring opportunities.

In whatever manner, with possessions that go on with an offensive rebound, the defense is often lacking order at the instant of the rebound, and these possessions often end with either a foul [the most effective method of scoring] or a tap-in or other relatively easy shot.

Only when the offensive team decides to withdraw the ball back out following an offensive rebound and run its half court offense would the defense have an opportunity to reset itself.

Concisely, to resume this post, teams obtain more easy scores in second chance possessions than in first chance possessions, so they must be registered and analyzed as it was explained and is included in the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System. ...."

Basketball Statistics Tracking Referred Questions:
About the Assists Tracking in the NBA and according the eBA System

Basketball Tracking Stats Referred Questions
"... How are assists awarded in the NBA?

Is it a pass that results in a basket with no dribbles, one dribble, etc., in between?

As in the NBA everything is different: are there specific guidelines for official
tracking ? ..."


Basically, there is no difference with another leagues in this category, only the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System have a special treatment with the assists.

According to the NBA’s statisticians' manual, an assist is credited to the player tossing "the last pass leading directly to a field goal if, and only if, the player scoring the goal responds by demonstrating immediate reaction toward the basket."

Consequently, according to the traditional statisticians' rules an assist is a pass that lead directly to a basket.
Any assist is credited to the player tossing the last pass leading directly to a field goal, if and only if the player scoring the goal responds by demonstrating immediate reaction toward the basket.
No more than one assist is to be credited for each field goal.
An in-bounds pass can be an assist, if it leads directly to a field goal.

An assist can be credited if a receiving player takes a dribble, so long as he makes an immediate reaction toward the basket.

John Stockton, the all-time NBA leader in assists and steals, will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame by the second greatest true point guard ever, Isiah Thomas. To put his statistical accomplishments into perspective, he had 15,806 assists and 3,265 steals. The #2 assists leader was Marc Jackson with 10,334 assists and the #2 steals leader was Michael Jordan with only 2,514 steals.

John Stockton, the all-time NBA leader in assists and steals, will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame by the second greatest true point guard ever, Isiah Thomas. To put his statistical accomplishments into perspective, he had 15,806 assists and 3,265 steals. The #2 assists leader was Marc Jackson with 10,334 assists and the #2 steals leader was Michael Jordan with only 2,514 steals.

Another obvious element is that this metric is somewhat dependent on how often a team made three-pointers, because the circumstantial numerical evidence that so many three-pointers are assisted.

It is not surprising at all that three-pointers tend to get more assists, having a portion of two-pointers which are "un-assistable", the result of put-backs and tip-ins, while few threes are shot off of the dribble.

Another evidence in our assist analysis maybe a good shooting team that doesn't score often on put-backs, so there were more two-point assist opportunities.

The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System, is able to give two assists - like in hockey - on one play.
Many times, a point guard gives a great pass, and another player makes a pass that leads to the basket.

The first pass gets a credit in the game analysis chapter - no at the stats numbers ! -, because it can be more important than the second pass. On the other hand, a great pass that leads to the shooter being fouled is credited as an assist.

In the case of free throws, eBA System records the assist if the fouled player makes both (or the three) throws or one of them. But in this case, in our rate we give the assist a qualification of one point for each free throw made.

The eBA System records the following stats about Assists, in addition to the Made and Received ones:

Defensive assists, missed assists, potential assists, assists in paint, assists outside of paint, within each, assists leading to jump shots, assists leading to lay-ups, assists leading to foul shots, and within each of these, are they part of fast break or not.

See in our forums the 'basketball assists' topics and the exposition "Basketball Assists Statistical Analysis" at eBA System Book.

All the terms in this post are widely explained at The eBA Basketball Encyclopedia.

Video Case Study:
Basketball 3/5/8/24 Seconds Cases: Team TO or Personal Turnover ?


"... Generally, we know, the 24 seconds violation is a team turnover and consequently a team steal for the team in defense. This is the game 1 of the NBA playoff game between the Nets & the Raps at the Air Canada Centre. This video clip features a fast break basket by Bostjan Nachbar ... and concludes with the Raps getting called on a 24 second shot clock violation. But previously there is an altered shot gained by the red Nets...

Should you give the statistical tracking according to your eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System ? Is it a team turnover or a personal of the last blocked shooter ? Is it a team steal because of the 24 seconds violation or is a personal steal of the blocker ? ..."

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About Basketball Per-Minute Statistics and the Player Contribution Measure

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
Per-minute Statistics: "... Per minute stats are a good manner to compare players within a team, seeing how a player off the bench might fare compared to the player in front of him in the rotation, but we must be careful about players who scarcely play - Jackie Butler may have averaged 96 points per 48 in the 5 minutes he played for the Knicks last year, but very doubtful he could have achieved it.

Also, we must be careful comparing players from one team to another. For example, the season Steve Nash averaged 16.1 assists per 48 while Tony Parker averaged just 8.6 - a large part of the reason for that is the pace and style Phoenix plays gave Nash more opportunities than Parker.

Per-48 Stats is not meant to be a projection of what a player would average if he played 48 minutes per game. Keep in mind that it is simply an expression of per-minute stats.

They are expressed as per-48 so that the resulting averages are easy to deal with: "23 points per 48 minutes" is easier to read and understand than ' 0,479 points per minute '; ..."

Players are not so happy 'playing their minutes' on the bench... but here Shack O'neill, Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher plays their 'special' connection between them... inbounds and outbounds ! In this picture from Lipstick Alley presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis

Player Contribution Measure: "... Time played is a parameter not used with frequency in player's valuation although it is included in the box stats.

To relate player's valuation with his minutes played will give us his "efficiency", degree of cooperation into the team and with his teammates, interesting factor for the coach, the player and the game analyst.

The team's 'efficiency' per minute is obtained by dividing the valuation points, taken from the statistics, by the possible play minutes ( 40 or 48 ) and the mean of player's efficiency per minute by dividing newly by 200 or 240 ( total minutes played by 5 players on the court ).

The result compared with the player's individual ( valuation / minutes played ) and multiplied by his minutes in play will give us his efficiency or degree of cooperation over or under the team's mean.

From the moment that you can have only five players on the floor at one time, which invariably leads to some players seeing more action than others, how can you measure the contribution of players who play less and thus have fewer points, rebounds, and so on, than the starters?

The eBA Annual Basketball Statistics Clinic uses the per-minute stat to measure a player's value in terms of any other raw data stat for players with a low range of minutes played.
Say that one player scores eight points in a game, however, plays only eight minutes.

His per-minute scoring average is one point per minute, which extrapolated to a 40-minute game, would be 40 points per game.

But, actually, nobody in the NBA, WNBA or Euroleague, for that matter - averages 40 points per game. Suddenly, those eight points looks more impressive.

Although coaches find the per-minute stat helpful in evaluating players, but it has its limitations. Longer time periods belongs surely to the best players, and shorter time periods may yield misleading stats. ..."

"... Imagine a player that scores a three-pointer in his first minute of play and then sat out the rest of the game. Does anyone truly believe that he would've scored 144 points (3 x 48) in that game had he played the 48 minutes ? ..."
