defense. The offensive method is documented in a couple places
For defense, I originally developed a similar-looking scoresheet
technique that is documented here
This, however, is hard to do. It is an immense amount of work and
the analysis of the data takes and additional amount.
Instead, I have posted a spreadsheet under the Files section here
called defstophandchart.xls that is just a tally sheet of
non-traditional numbers. Putting these numbers together with blocks,
steals, and defensive rebounds allows some counting of "Defensive
Stops" for individuals, one thing I really want to track. The
non-traditional stats are Forced Misses, Forced Turnovers, and Forced
missed free throws. I also have in there Allowed Field Goals and
Allowed Free throws. There is an explanation of how to score things
in the spreadsheet.
There clearly is some interpretation involved in doing the scoring.
I find that scoring off of offensive rebounds is hard -- I often
award a made FG off of an OR to the team unless it's obvious whose
man picked up the garbage.
Take a stab and ask me questions. I'd also be curious to score the
same game as you to see how scoring varies between scorers. (I have
found that official scorers occasional give steals to the wrong
person and blocks are sometimes very questionable.)
