022310 ~ About "Stops'

Stops are a a coordinated sequence of individual stops and assistance provided to team stops.

Individual stops are steals, blocks and defensive rebounds. Blocks and defensive rebounds are weighted against each other.

Team stops are based on the three stats mentioned, plus field goals and free throws defensed, and forced turnovers. Players get credit here based on their minutes played.

Individual and team stops are just added together.
