Reflexions on Basketball Statistics:
15,97% of the Basketball Possessions End in TO


Basketball Statistician's Monday's Reflexions
How we perform the analysis of one team´s turnovers in relation with other team, let say the next opponent at the next game ?

If a team averages 15 turnovers a game, and the next opponent is a team that forces 15 turnovers a game, is it possible to assume that there will be 15 turnovers for that game ?

Or... we must take the league average as the basic unit to analyze this data: if the league average for turnovers is 16.4 that´s means that each team turnover rate is 109,33% compared to the league...


During the eBA Basketball Statistics Tracking Clinics I expressed my opinion that 'exclusive ratings' and 'scientific formulas' employ only a lacking minimum of the significantly important statistics: turnovers per possession and Defensive turnovers per possession; games won and games lost; etc.

But all other information as playoff game vs meaningless garbage time, recent injuries, possible matchup advantages, etc. (see the thread about eBA System Non Standard Statistics ) are disregarded.


Homecourt advantage is usually disregarded too, (see this thread about Home & Road Stats: differences ) meanwhile the Game Analysis & Scouting takes in account every one of this categories, and much more.

You can reach to the answer to your question by a different way: express the team's turnover proclivity in terms of the proportion of possessions that end in turnover - according to the eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System Archives: around the 15,97% of the possessions end in turnover.

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant (24), against a 1 vs 4 defense !, has his shot blocked by Chicago Bulls small forward Luol Deng (9) in the final seconds of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles on December 25, 2011. The Bulls won 88 to 87. In this UPI photograph by Lori Shepler from Dalje.com presented by #eBAStatsGroup #BasketballStatistics Analysis . Photograph: Dalje.com
