Team Shot Clock Usage

We will be presenting a number of different views showing the statistics for all teams at once. This article will focus on how teams have performed in the different shot clock segments for both offense and defense. We have elected to break the 24 seconds down into four categories:

  • 0-10 seconds - "Quick" possessions coming from fast breaks, putbacks, turnovers and other events.

  • 11-15 seconds - "Early" resolution to a possession.

  • 16-20 seconds - "Structured" possession.

  • 21+ seconds - "Late" possession activity, often rushing to beat the shot clock buzzer.
  • While there are many different stats we could present, including such things as the turnover percentage within a time segment, fouls drawn, the offensive rebounding, etc, we will simplify to three main numbers:

  • Use
  • - the percentage of possessions that were concluded in that shot clock window
  • eFG
  • - the effective field goal percentage (adjusted for 3-pointers) of FGA's
  • RTG
  • - the points per 100 possessions in the given shot clock segment, encompassing field goal shooting, free throw shooting, turnovers and rebounds.

    In addition to the tables below, we have accompanying analysis in the Using the Shot Clock wisely article (soon to be updated to look at 2004-05 in addition to 03-04!)

    For comparison purposes, here are the "Pts per 100 Poss" NBA league wide averages:
    0-10 Secs: 114.0
    11-15 Secs: 105.2
    16-20 Secs: 101.9
    21+ Secs: 94.9
    ...it gets tough in the waning seconds of the shot clock!

    The following tables are sortable. Click on a column header to sort by that stat.
