      For what it's worth, if you take out defensive rebounds and consider
      just whether they let opponents make shots (or turn the ball over),
      the Nets drop to third:

      Sacramento - 85.0
      San Antonio - 85.7
      New Jersey - 85.8
      Indiana - 87.2
      Detroit - 87.7

      New Jersey had a much better defensive rebound % than Sacramento and
      San Antonio, both of whom were below average. Detroit had the best
      defensive rebounding % in the league, so that's why they shoot up
      taking that as part of defense.

        All this and Bob's stuff is consistent with what I do. That's good.
        We're all on the same page. Kevin is pointing at a points per 100
        play number, which I don't calculate much. I look at the difference
        shown above between Sac and NJ as pretty much noise. Estimates of
        plays and possessions are good to just under 1%, so differences of
        less than 1 in these numbers aren't really differences.
