but he also matches up players offensively and defensively. What he
then does is evaluate how well defenders lower their opponent's
tendex rating relative to their averages. This is to show that
players who are good defenders, like Bruce Bowen, who also get
matched up against the tough shooters, get credit for bringing down
good offensive players to only decent offensive players. Doug told
me that the tendex rating that he calculates for this actually does
not include steals, blocks, or defensive rebounds after I suggested
that reduction in those stats really isn't the doing of a defender.
