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

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....."

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.

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....

About Basketball Tall Players and the Basketball Winning Percentage Statistics
and Basketball From the Archives Video in our Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
About Basketball Tall Players and the Basketball Winning Percentage Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
Is there at the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System a research about the influence of the tall players in the winning percentage and the game statistics evolution of the outside and inside players in this game dominated by giants...?

Some data to go on with this question and the discussion:
in fact, there is in the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System a research about the influence of the tall players in the winning percentage and the game statistics evolution of the outside and inside players.

And some data about... only three teams won the NBA ring without a 2.13 m player in their opening quintet in the last 25 years:

... 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.

Read also these related posts:

"... 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. ..."

About Basketball Per-Minute Statistics and the Player Contribution Measure

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
Photograph: Lipstick Alley

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 still concluded 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 ? ..."

Basketball Statistics Referred Concepts:
The Basketball Personal Fouls eBA Analysis ~ Concept & Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts
"... With the exception of the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System, why fouls are generally not even considered in evaluating and efficiency formulas by the other statistical systems ? ... "

There is a common misconception in the other basketball statistics analysis systems, specially at the live-game statistics, and personal fouls are generally not even considered when evaluating a player's talent.

This error or "statistics myth" raised because the false concept that it is assumed everyone commits those personal fouls and they are unavoidable.

Even, a foul means a defender has been caught out of position and has damaged his team by adding to a number that could eventually lead to free possessions via the Bonus.

Personal Fouls eBA Analysis

But the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System have a rating of personal foul made and received and qualify each one as "good", "neutral" or "bad": the rating is explained in eBA Clinics Online and discussed in the "Statistics & Statisticians Board" in the forum, which is reserved for registered members.

Something like when 2 free throws are missed the foul actually becomes a positive for the fouling team much like a steal. If only one free throw is made it becomes a tie, nothing lost or gained. When 2 out of 3 free throws are made on the average the free throws become a negative for the fouling team.

The situation in which the personal foul was committed, plays an important role in this personal fouls eBA

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.
