Thread: True Shooting: Team Offense, Defense, and Differentials

    True Shooting: Team Offense, Defense, and Differentials

    With a positive true shooting differential (your ability to score more efficiently than your opponent) you have a good team foundation. You still need to tweak your roster and gameplan to give you more possessions than your opponent (Turnover and Rebounding differentials) but you have the start of a good team. Here are how all of the teams rank in that category.

    I apologize for the rudimentary table

    ..................Offense..........Defense........ ...Differential
    76ers _______ .518 _______ .478 ________ .040
    Bucks _______ .517 _______ .500 _______ .017
    Bulls ________ .516 _______ .520 _______ -.004
    Cavs _______ .525 _______ .509 _______ .016
    Celtics ______ .516 _______ .499 _______ .017
    Clippers ____ .499 _______ .501 _______ -.002
    Grizzlies ____ .531 _______ .495 ________ .036
    Hawks ______ .521 _______ .508 _______ .013
    Heat ________ .494 _______ .505 ______ -.011
    Hornets _____ .535 ________ .498 _______ .037
    Jazz ________ .496 _______ .520 ______ -.024
    Kings _______ .511 _______ .529 ______ -.018
    Knicks ______ .501 _______ .515 _______ -.014
    Lakers ______ .518 _______ .531 _______ -.013
    Magic _______ .495 ______ .509 _______ -.014
    Mavericks ___ .522 ______ .523 _______ -.001
    Nets ________ .490 ______ .508 _______ -.018
    Nuggets _____ .492 _______ .530 _______ -.038
    Pacers _______ .491 ______ .513 _______ -.022
    Pistons ______ .513 _______ .518 _______ -.005
    Raptors ______ .526 ______ .510 _______ .016
    Rockets ______ .499 ______ .498 _______ .001
    Spurs _______ .474 ______ .508 _______ -.034
    Suns ________ .512 ______ .513 _______ -.001

    Warriors ____ .501 ______ .535 ______ -.034
    Wizards _____ .508 ______ .496 ______ .012

    I'll leave you to mainly draw your own conclusions, but to me the first thing that jumps out is

    Tier 1
    76ers
    Hornets
    Grizzlies

    Tier 2
    Sonics
    Bucks
    Celtics
    Rators
    Cavs
    Twolves

    Last
    Nuggets

    I'm satisfied with being mediocre.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    Pretty much what I knew. Top 5 Offense. Defense is Garbage. Rebounding is Garbage. If I can improve those two things a little I'd be happy.

    TS% is one of the many things I calculate every sim, but thanks for this Beeball. Every one of these different types of rankings help. Good to see it here compared to the rest of the league rather than staring at it on a spreadsheet.

    Nets must be in Tier 4 by themselves. Thanks for this, I didn't do as bad add I anticipated.

    defense for sure. This is encouraging for you. I think you are one of the 4 teams with a championship shot. I really think it'll be either Philly, New Orleans, you or the Lakers (always a wild card)

    I've had a good D for the last few seasons, I'm not really surprised. Added Ray Allen who's better than Johnson defensively at the 2, have Crawford starting who's better than Brevin Knight, and replaced Zo with 2 A defenders who can rebound. The only one that I was worried about replacing was Ricky Davis who is better than JJ, but he hasn't been bad this season.

    Free Throws are killing me on both defense and offense. If I was average at shooting FTs and oFT% I'd say I'd be much higher in the list.

    It's surprising just because of what we know irl; Any team w ray ray and jamal crawford wouldn't be inuitive to be a good defensive team; but i've noticed on this game Ray is a VERY good B+ defender. In face, he's better than a lot of A- guys i've had on my team before. I'm really pleasently surprised how good you are this year.
