DRtg stands for 'Defensive Rating' in the statistical formulas. Is a statistic used in basketball  (external link) to measure an individual player's efficiency at preventing the other team from scoring points.

It was created by author and statistician Dean Oliver.

The formula is:

Defensive Rating= ( Opponent's Points Allowed / Opponent's Possessions ) x 100

The result is the expected amount of points that an individual player will allow on defense over 100 possessions. This stat can be significantly influenced by the defense of a player's teammates.
