Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Created Field Goal Percentage - The Goal Percentage without Assists

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
Field goal percentage in basketball is the ratio of field goals made to field goals attempted. Its abbreviation is FG%.
Three-point field goals are included in this percentage. Instead of using scales of 0 to 100%, the scale .000 to 1.000 is commonly used.
A higher field goal percentage denotes higher efficiency.

In basketball, a FG% of .500 (50%) or above is considered a good percentage, although this criterion does not apply equally to all positions. Guards usually have lower FG% than forwards and centers.

Field goal percentage does not completely tell the skill of a player, but a low field goal percentage can indicate a poor offensive player or a player who takes many difficult shots.

The cFG% ( created Field Goal Percentage ) is a stat applied by the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System which has the same formula as the FG% ( click here to this topic ) except that only field goals which are unassisted and which occur at least 5 seconds after an offensive rebound are counted.

The Created FG% is an attempt to measure how well a player can create his own shot without the benefit of those situations. Therefore, when we make the calculation of this statistic, assisted shots and shots from offensive rebounds are not counted. The whole fundamental of this statistics is just being discussed in the eBA 2012 Clinic's live chat.

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Basketball Points Created and the Player Contribution

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
How much value is placed on an assist ?
Like the problems with rebounds and blocked shots, standard formulas try to arbitrarily assign a value to assists that would give credit to the 'assistant' and simultaneously take the same account of credit away from the 'assisted'.

Assists, though, unlike rebounds or blocked shots, have a definite scoring possession associated with them: there is no assists without points scored.
We have a turnover when your team has the ball, and you lose it to the other team. A turnover can come in the form of a stolen pass, a pass that you throw out of bounds, it can be where they steal the ball away from your dribbler, it can be where you have a player stand in the paint for over three seconds, etc., etc, etc.

When the turnover does occurs or when a bad shot is forced during an ON BALL screen situation, that's means there is a direct influence of an opponent action: the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System refers to it as a FORCED TURNOVER.

An individual floor percentage could be a way for not only evaluate the offensive efficiency of players, but also to calculate the points created by each player.

"Individual Floor Percentage"=
scoring possessions by a player divided by his total possessions.

"Player's Scoring Possessions"=
field goals that weren't assisted on
+ a not specified percentage of his field goals that were assisted on
+ a not specified percentage of his assists
+ free throw made that represent a team scoring possession.

"Player's Total Possessions"=
all his scoring possessions
+ his missed field goals
+ free throws that weren't rebounded by his team
+ turnovers.

The question to go on with this topic resides in the value of that "not specified percentage" in each field.

About the Steals Concept and Statistical Tracking

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Steals Concept and Statistical Tracking

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
In basketball, a steal occurs when a defensive player legally gains control of the ball from an offensive player. This can be done by deflecting and controlling, catching, or batting (to a teammate) a pass or dribble of an offensive player.

A steal may happen while the offensive player is dribbling, holding the ball, or by intercepting a pass. The defender must not touch the offensive player's hands or otherwise a foul is called.
Stealing the ball requires concentration, good anticipation, speed and fast reflexes and good hustle, all common traits of a good defender. However, like blocked shots, steals aren't always a perfect gauge of a player's defensive abilities.

An unsuccessful steal can result in the defender being out of position and unable to recover in time. Therefore, a steal is a gamble. And a steal usually leads to a fast break, the most exciting play in the sport.

If an offensive player loses possession of the basketball due to a steal, he is recorded as making a turnover and the defender is recorded with a steal, forced or unforced depending upon the play development.

About the Basketball Steals Concept and Statistical Tracking
Photograph: Zimbio.com

The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System records, in addition to the traditional stats, the points made from the forced and unforced steals done during the game. This number is not always similar, as people usually thinks, to the opponent's points off turnovers.

There is no necessarily prototypical position from which a player may get many steals from. While smaller, quicker guards tend to accumulate the most steals, there are many exceptions. For example, forward Rick Barry led the NBA in steals in 1974-75, and for many years center Hakeem Olajuwon lead his team in the category, consistently ranking among the league's leaders.

Therefore, the eBA System records the area and the whole situation where the steal occurred.

Steals were first recorded in the NBA's 1973-74 season. Kendall Gill ( on December 26, 1976 ) and Larry Kenon ( on April 3, 1999 ) are tied for most steals in a regular season NBA game with eleven.
The most steals in an NBA season is 301 by Alvin Robertson in 1985-86.

A Basketball Reflection about Preventing Points from and Scoring More Points
and Basketball Actuality News Video in our Weekly Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
A Basketball Reflection about Preventing Points from and Scoring More Points

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
I just explained in one of my last expositions in eBA CLINICS ONLINE that...
"... as far as you analyze one's basketball team defense, in addition to all the formulas we studied at the eBA Basketball Statistics Clinic, the principal question any statistician would have to ask is:
what does the individual player do to prevent points from being scored ? and ...
what does he do to enable his team to score more points than the other team ? ..."

We can read at Detroit Free Press
"... Teams that play faster squeeze more possessions into their 48 minutes, giving them more opportunities to score. But they give their opponents just as many opportunities to score. ..."

"... Playing more possessions – and thus, both scoring and allowing more points – has no real affect on the actual quality of a team’s offense and defense. ..."

"... So, although advanced statistics reveal that Phoenix’s defense was probably better than the credit it received then, they say the opposite about the current Pistons’ defense, which ranked 14th in points allowed per game and 22nd in defensive rating last year. ..."

"... Yes, offensive rating and points per game – or defensive rating and points allowed per game – usually go hand-in-hand. But, often enough, points per game and points allowed per game are misleading. ..."

Steals and defensive rebounds are distinctly important in that context, since each takes a possession away from the opponent.

Fouls are important, since a good batch of the time they directly lead to the opponent getting free throws.

Blocked shots, while interesting for the fans, is of borderline value, since it only decreases the other teams FG%, and does not assure a change of possession.

A + / - chart, indicating the margin of points the teams scores in relation to their opponent when a player is on the court, would also be useful, since it allows us to compare individual players to their teammates and to other players around the league.

Getting steals and creating turnovers with a trapping, opportunist defense, getting a lot of deflections and a lot of loose balls, means to annul the opponent transition game, and shows full and continue activity of the defender players.

Also the basketball weight trainers understand that basketball training or basketball weight training must be designed to optimally elevate the vertical jump, speed, and stamina on the court.

This means more blocked shots, steals and successful fast breaks which will translate to more team wins !

About the Player Consistency Measure & Statistics Affecting Winning Percentage
and Basketball Actuality News Video in our Thursday's Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Player Consistency Measure & Statistics Affecting Winning Percentage

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... Between game analysts I hear a lot of talk about a player's consistency being important. But I think that it may almost be as important to know what you'll get from a player night in and night out as to actually get production.

Don't you think that it would be better to have a player who gets a solid 12 pts 7 rebounds every night, than to have someone who you never know if he'll get 17-11 or 7-3 each night, simply because you can count on that production, and plan around it ?

Is there a statistic in the Basketball Statistics Analysis System that measures consistency of players? ..."

My answer is a question.... consistency at doing what ?

In general anything that makes the game more random benefits the weaker team and anything that makes the contest less subject to random factors benefits the stronger team.

We said in the still concluded eBA Basketball Statistics Annual Clinic's live chat that this is why, all else being equal, a slower pace benefits the weaker team and fewer possessions increases the impact of random events.

To measure the player's consistency you can use a linear weights rating system per 48 minutes game-by-game. And then apply standard deviation for the stat categories of interest which would probably be the source of interesting results.

And on the other hand, traditional statistics in real time team-works, use excessively the option "Team Player"; because of lack of time to determine which player caused the opponent TO, or because of lack of knowledge about the game.

Traveling or a bad control outside ball of an opponent, are immediately registered as a TO by the stats men during a game. But the Steal of our player causing directly the walking or the outside ball by executing, for example, a good double team defense or a quick footwork, not always is registered...


After years of trying to find out how certain basketball statistics ( Field Goals; Free Throws; Personal Fouls; Turnovers; 3 Pointers; Blocks and Steals ) affect winning percentage for a basketball team, our conclusion is that while a rise in each stat have some affect in the rise or fall of winning percentage, we could not determine a single stat that had a direct affect on the dependent variable: the Winning Percentage.


So our results are more effective when we run the system on how the combination of all stats affected winning percentage, however this would be obvious given the nature of our study: the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System.

About the Fastbreak Points Per 48 Minutes and the Four Factors
and Basketball Actuality News Video in our Thursday's Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About the Fastbreak Points Per 48 Minutes and the Four Factors

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... Does the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System tracks team fastbreak points game by game and current season average ?

May be the actual basketball game is allowing quick players more access to the lane because of a more rigorous and frequent handchecking calls ?
May be that scoring and FG shots and possessions are down ? ..."

Certainly, the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System tracks team fast-break points game by game and current season average. Some numbers about our total season data:

 • Officials are currently calling the games nearer, that means more non-shooting fouls. So, teams are receiving added time per possession ascribable to the shot clock getting reset more frequently.

 • Scoring and Field Goals shots and possessions are going down and average duration of possession in game clock time is raising: therefore putting all together we can conclude that the pace has decelerated a little.

 • Using our possessions formula - see eBA Encyclopedia - and team data from our archives, the average duration of possession reveal us a possession use in a slower pace: moved from 15.83 seconds to 15.88 seconds.

 • And finally, fast-break frequency and points made from stayed the same, personal fouls raises 0.57%, turnovers moves lower 0.6%, steals moves lower 4.6%, blocked shots moves lower 3.4%, assists moves lower 3.2%, total rebounds moves lower 2.2%, shooting percentages are raising but field goal attempts moves lower 0.3% and 3 points attempts raises 1.5%.

In this topic we can find a help in understanding the Dean Oliver's Four Factors.

Essentially, the four factors are the building blocks to the efficiency formula.

Efficiency data gives you an idea of the quality of a team’s offense or defense, but the four factors tell you why a team is good or bad when they have or don’t have the ball.

Here’s a breakdown of how each statistic on this concept is calculated…

Effective field goal percentage is like regular field goal percentage except that it gives 50% more credit for made three-pointers.

eFG%  = (.5*3FGM + FGM) / FGA

Turnover percentage is a pace-independent measure of ball security.

TO% = TO / Possessions

Offensive rebounding percentage is a measure of the possible rebounds that are gathered by the offense.

OR% = OR / (OR + DRopp)

Rules and Tools for Performance Analysis
Keep in mind that rebounding percentage is computed from box score data which does not contain team rebounds. Therefore, the figures shown here may differ slightly from calculations made on the rebounding totals provided by a team.

Finally, free throw rate captures a team’s ability to score from the line.

FTRateoff = FTM / FGA 

FTRatedef = FTA / FGA

Defensive FTRate uses FTA in the numerator since the defense has little control on the percentage of free throw attempts made by the opposition.

The four factors concept is based on the research from Dean Oliver, author of the book and eBook Basketball on Paper: Rules and Tools for Performance Analysis, and you can read Dean’s more detailed explanation of the four factors in the exposition by Prof. Roberto Azar from eBA-Stats about "Basketball Formulas Revision" in eBA ONLINE CLINICS....."

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts: Statistics Lies, Uses and Misuses of Statistical Graphs

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
Reflections about Statistics Lies, Uses and Misuses of Statistical Graphics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
At the last weekly meeting of the concluded eBA Basketball Statistics Tracking Annual Clinic we were discussing the topic of the statistics lies which was initiated by the exposition "Statistics & Statisticians" at eBA ONLINE.

Here is the opinion of Paul H. Kvam and Joel Sokol from their work "Teaching Statistics with Sports Examples":

Statistical lies are most frequently committed in graphical form, where the eyes can be more easily deceived by spurious trends suggested in a picture. A common abuse is manipulating scales on charts and graphs by truncating, censoring or transforming the axis values.

The next figure shows two different charts showing an increase in average attendance at NCAA Women's Soccer games between 1998 and 2003. The first (blue)chart  is the default Microsoft Excel chart; many statistical software packages, in fact, will restrict both axes to a small set of values that contains the data, which helps the reader focus on chart differences more clearly. However, it also removes the scale of difference from the picture, which has potential to mislead readers who pay little attention to the axis labels.

Average Attendance at NCAA

Average Attendance at NCAA

Two different charts showing average attendance
at NCAA Women's Soccer (season) matches

The reader's sense of proportion can be manipulated further with image-based charts, which are standard in sports publications. As an example, the figure below graphs the season wins for the New England Patriots using clip-art in place of vertical bars.

Season Wins for the New England Patriots

Regular season wins for the New England Patriots, 2002-2003

While the height of the football icons corresponds to the information the graph is meant to communicate, the size of the footballs does not; the Patriots improved 56% in wins between 2002 and 2003, but the increase in area of the football icons is over 140%.

Scouting & Statistics Communities Feuded like Members of Rival Families

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About Scouting & Statistics Communities Feuded like Members of Rival Families

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"For the past recent years, the scouting and statistics communities have feuded like members of rival families. Basketball scouters who evaluate players with their eyes are treated with contempt and the numbers-oriented people are cast as cold, computer-wielding propellerheads with no appreciation for scouting intangibles. Not surprisingly, the camps have grown so polarized that they have retreated to their respective bunkers rather than engage in open and intelligent debate. Instead of gathering longtime scouts and statistics experts to discuss all the great issues in this arena."

"It is correct that we have coaches that "are not stat guys", that only trust what they see, and they think they don't need a bunch of numbers to get in the way. Others, use stats in various ways and are many which can speak about a tendex type formula.

Most of us, being in the basketball statistics analysis theme, and specially the analysis area, begin to understand that basketball is a difficult game to quantify, in some degree because of the way the game changes through time, and partially because of the powerful impact of teamwork, with the constant moving interaction of 12 players and the ball.

We are the same people which understand that at some level, we use the available information to better understand the game: no one stat can explain everything, so the combination of the numbers and the plays appreciation, eBA statistics analysis basis, is by this time the correct way."

Basketball scouting and basketball analytics don’t need to be oil and water. In this image from HoopsThink presented by eBA Stats Basketball Statistics Analysis .

Basketball scouting and basketball analytics don’t need to be oil and water. They tell you different things, but they’re not entirely different. They can be used to supplement one another because they are pieces of the same puzzle. Here’s how you can do it: eBA sketball Analysis System.

"Basketball rates player's defense very badly meanwhile baseball, relatively, has multiple manners in this area. A basketball player may get a lot of blocks and simultaneously be a bad defender. On the other hand, another player may be an excellent man-to-man defender and at the same time don't get a lot of steals. A broad set of statistical methods can say us that the player A is better than the player B on offense, but they can't give us definitive elements about those players defensively. Only a good game analyst scouting professional can perform it.

Sobre las comunidades de Estadígrafos y Scouting del Baloncesto

Image: Basketball-Statistics.com


Now, we know that basketball has a lot of difficult areas of quantitative information when we translate a game into statistics. For example, categories as "allowed points - from 2, 3 and PF bonus"; "offensive rebounds allowed"; "turnovers - that aren't steals" and "good and bad personal fouls" - see our complete list of statistical analysis categories here, which are included in the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System, are not accounted in the traditional statistical methods, specially those made at live game time.

Gathering and analyzing those categories of data will give us a sort of information, for example, about how many unguarded shots - no fastbreaks plays - were taken by the opponents, and how many were allowed to us. This kind of info is the correct way in evaluating defense."

"Don't you think that basketball players have been dehumanized too much by this stats tend ? Ignoring the human side is an adjustment for breakage.

Statisticians and scouter must work together: to evaluate a player for purposes of building a team implies a lot more than whether that player can play.

Numbers can help with analyzing what a player does on the court, but to build a team not only means numbers....

Statistician's Digest: Basketball Registering Statistics Case Studies

Basketball Statistician's Digest:
eBA sketball Statistics Case Study: About Basketball Rebounds

Basketball Statistics eBA Case Study
Different Situations in a Basketball Rebound... Case Study

"... A missed shot comes off the rim and bounces along the floor. A1 is in position to pick up the ball, but B5 gains control. However, B5 fouls A1...

• case a) before either can touch the ball, or
• case b) as B5 is the first to touch the ball, or
• case c) after B5 is first to gain control of the ball, or
• case d) after A1 is first to touch the ball.

What is the statistical registration according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System in each one of the given situations, including the type of the registration ( forced or unforced TO; good or bad foul; close, long, disputed or undisputed rebound, etc.) ... ?"

Conclusion:
eBA System Statistics Fundamentals:
A player should be credited with a rebound only if the player earned that rebound before the ball was dead. What happened after the ball became dead and what would have happened if the ball had not become dead might be different.

The statistician should not attempt to decide what would have happened, but should decide only what did happen. However, if there is doubt about player control, the statistician may assume that there was control.

Sometimes there is doubt about whether a player has gained control of the ball before a certain act takes place. In such cases, the statistician should use the following guidelines.
• (a) If the statistician feels there was a possibility of player control, then the play shall be treated as though there was player control.
• (b) If the statistician feels there definitely was not a possibility of player control, then it shall be treated as though there was no player control.

Different Situations in a Basketball Rebound
Photograph from Red Box Pictures

eBA Basketball Statistical Tracking:

• In (a) the ball became dead when the foul was committed. Charge B5 with a BAD Personal Foul and credit Team A with a LONG UNDISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

• In (b) if B5 gained control before the foul, the official will have indicated that the foul was a player-control foul and B5 would be credited with an individual LONG DISPUTED Defensive Rebound and charged with a FORCED Turnover.

Urban Meyer and Coachtube

If there is no indication of player control, then credit Team A with a LONG DISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

• In (c) credit B5 with an individual LONG DISPUTED Def Rebound and charge him or her with an UNFORCED turnover

• In (d) if the statistician thinks that A1 possibly had control before the foul, credit A1 with an individual LONG DISPUTED Off Rebound.

If the statistician thinks that A1 definitely did not have control, credit Team A with a LONG UNDISPUTED Dead-ball Offensive Rebound.

... the Detroit Pistons in 2003-04 ( with Rasheed Wallace, 2.11, as the tall man of the opening team ), newly the Pistons in 1988-89 ( with Laimbeer, 2.11, as the tall man ) and the Sixers of 1982-83 ( with Moses Malone, 2.08, as the tall of the opening quintet ). And, speaking about the Euroleague, only one team: the Panathinaikos of 2001-02, with Alvertis, 2.06, as the tall man of the team.

And to close this the first section of the answer, with all that was said we reach to the 'Seven Feet Theory', which is supported by recognized NBA scouters: to win actually a championship you must have a 7 feet ( 2,13 m ) player in the middle of the paint area.

"... Let us now have a closer look to the first two changes proposed here by Dennis Hans. He thinks that we’ll not only reduce the threat of foul trouble, we’ll remake center into a full-time basketball position, where quickness, creativity and skill, rather than brute strength or a gift for flopping, are paramount.

1) Make non-brutal illegal screens a loss-of-possession violation, like traveling. Only dirty picks – sticking out an elbow, forearm or bony knee – will be a foul.
Probably 90 percent of illegal screens fall into the non-dirty category.

2) Quit treating intentional fouls as if they were non-intentional. Current penalties for the latter are fine; for the former, they are so weak that they function as rewards. ..."

"... And I think that in order to recognize the importance of the tall men´s work we must reach the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis and read the chapter of the opponents errors forced by our tall men and the block shots which ends in our baskets on the other side of the court.

Tall men are not as spectacular as the guards, but remember my post with the 'Seven Feet Theory', which is supported by recognized NBA scouters: to win actually a championship you must have a 7 feet ( 2,13 m ) player in the middle of the paint area.

Teams with small players are more spectacular and quick, play funny basketball and may reach the top... but the winners are teams with tall men. ..."

How Tony Parker Got France to EuroBasket 2013 Finals

Coach Nick breaks down this incredible semifinal game between France and Spain, where Sergio Rodriguez made some incredible plays and Tony Parker scored 32 points. But it came down to two teams faltering at the end, no one wanting to win this game. France overcame years of frustration to hang on, and met Lithuania in the Finals to win first EuroBasket title.
