Jeremy Comstock: Indiana Isn’t Forcing Turnovers

In searching for a telling statistic this week, much of my initial thoughts were simply
pointing out what would be obvious to any casual observer of the Pacers: The offense
is terrible, the schedule has been weak, Roy Hibbert is gunning for the Adonal Foyle
award as the owner of the NBA’s worst contract, and so forth.

While perusing Basketball Reference’s stats page, however, I came across a
fascinating number:


11.3%


So far this season, the one thing that the Pacer have been able to hang their hat on
has been defense. Sure, the team might have the second-worst offense and the
lowest effective field goal percentage in the NBA, but the defense has been pretty
stingy. Right now, the Pacers have the NBA’s best defense in fact, allowing just 98.2
points per 100 possession (which, for reference, is nearly 6 points/possession better
than league average).

The difference, however, is where our 11.3% comes into play.

This is the turnover rate of the Pacers’ opponents so far this season. Turnover rate
is the percentage of opponents’ possessions that end in a turnover. The Pacers are
currently ranked 30th in the NBA in turnover rate and are creating turnovers on
about 2.5% fewer possessions than they did last season. What this means is that
while they are playing some pretty stingy defense, they are not creating the
turnovers necessary to turn that defense into instant offense. They are rarely
grabbing a steal and running down the court for an easy basket. They are more
often just forcing the other team to miss, grabbing the rebound and then marching
up the court to run a terrible offensive set that probably won’t work.

If they were able to create...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s (http://www.eightpointsnineseconds.com/2012/11/pacers-stat-of-the-week-indiana-isnt-forcing-turnovers/)

Darius Soriano: Trending Up - Metta World Peace

Size remains a premium in the NBA, even as the league trends smaller and quicker.
Since their first round playoff loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the San Antonio Spurs
have been perceived as especially vulnerable to teams with large frontlines.

Coming into the season, I’m not sure anyone had high expectations for Metta World
Peace. After a very good first campaign with the Lakers in 2010, Ron saw his
production and efficiency decline the past two seasons. Last year, in particular, was
as poor a campaign he’d had in some time as nagging injuries kept him from being
in peak physical condition and then a late season suspension erased his progress
once he did work his way into shape.

This year, however, we’ve seen a brand new Ron. He’s in the best shape of his 4
seasons in Los Angeles, spent the summer working on his outside shot, and has
shown a renewed confidence in every aspect of his game. Plus, since the Lakers
scrapped the Princeton Offense and moved to a more wide open style, Ron is
thriving offensively and putting up his best numbers since he was a featured
player in Houston and Sacramento.

Consider the following:


His 14.0 points per game are his highest since the 2009 season.
His 43.6% shooting from the field is his highest since the 2008 season.
His 39.1% shooting from behind the arc is his highest since the 2009 season.
His 80% FT shooting is the 2nd highest mark of his career and best since he
played for the Pacers.

And while those are his season long numbers, recently he’s been playing even
better. In the last 5 games (or, the games since Mike D’Antoni has been actively
coaching — either on the bench or running practices), Ron is shooting even better
from all spots on the floor, scoring at a higher clip (16 ppg), rebounding better,
drawing more fouls, and committing fewer turnovers.

The beauty of Mike D’Antoni’s system is that it allows wing players to face off
against defenders in space. Most of the time when a wing catches the ball, he’s
working from the weak side of the floor where there’s only one other offensive
player to take up space. From this alignment, Ron is able to shoot his jumper in
rhythm or use his improved first step and his (still amazing) brute strength to
power by his man and get shots to the rim.



http://www.forumblueandgold.com/wp-content/Ron-shot-chart-last-5.jpeg (http://www.forumblueandgold.com/wp-content/Ron-shot-chart-last-5.jpeg)

Looking at Ron’s shot chart, you see this very clearly. Long two pointers and
mid-range jumpers have nearly been abandoned for shots in (or near) the paint
or three pointers. Because he’s knocking down the long ball at a higher
percentage, it’s leading to defenses guarding him more closely which opens up
his drives to the rim.

It would be far fetched to think...CONTINUE READING AT FORUM BLUE & GOLD (http://www.forumblueandgold.com/2012/11/26/trending-up-metta-world-peace/)

**EDIT** All's well that ends well... Thanks for the tips Goyle... Now let's beat these *******s!

Talk about your huge bummers...

(as per link in my sig) I usually attend this game each year as I live in LA.

This year, I am back in Wisconsin for Thanksgiving and not flying home till tomorrow morning.

Which means not only will I miss the game in person, but I cannot even watch it on TV because my NBA LP Broadband account will black out the game since the zip code on file for my purchase is a southern California zip code :(

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to how to circumvent that? I just realized this morning that the stupid black out rules would apply to me even though I am in Wisconsin. This is usually my one big "potential bragging rights" game each year... Really sad to potentially miss it, even though I've technically paid for it.

Are you sure they black it out based on zip code? Last year I was able to watch a Lakers game on LPBB by using a proxy, so if you're in Wisconsin it should work without a proxy. Have you tried an archived Lakers or Clippers game?

Really? Proxy worked?

Wow! This is great!

I am able to watch the Lakers archived games. Perhaps there is hope after all.

I don't remember why, but for some reason I was told somewhere that it had to do with ZIP codes. Maybe that's changed now, or I was just misinformed.

Either way, I am optimistic and very glad :)

don't need a proxy either, your ip will "give you away" and show you are not in LA, main reason they started LPB is to let ppl watch games when they travel, would be silly to black out

I absolutely HATE these late west-coast game tip offs ..

I usually have to head to start working around 9:30, sometimes 10 at latest .. I won't get to see this game at all... /sigh
10:30 tip off is ridiculous IMO.

I usually listen to talk radio and/or different ballgames on my mobile phone with headphones while I am working all night, so I figured at LEAST I'd get to listen live...

I guess I was wrong, ARGHHHH!!!

And what REALLY sucks, is during one of the last games I was gonna miss watching, I even tried IHeart radio to listen to 1070 because it is actually available as a local station on it, and the damn game was blacked out... i'm like WTF?!?
I even went so far as to download the 1070 the fan mobile app... no dice, it was blacked out too..

I don't understand it, why it was blacked out.. that sucks..
So I don't know of any way to be able to listen really, as I have no access to a radio while I work, and since I clean a huge building, it is impractical to bring in a radio since I will be all over the building working ..

The ONLY thing I can think of, is trying to login to nba.com audio league pass, which is free , and listen through the mobile browser...
The only thing that sucks is , I tried it on the Toronto/ Houston game just a few minutes ago and it seemed to be laggy and buffer quite a bit... .. sigh....

Anyone who may have any ideas I haven't thought of , your suggestions would be appreciated.. lol....

Why is a 7:30 tip for local ridiculous? Don't most games in the league start at 8 pm (which would make the game 11pm for us)? Do you want Lakers games to start before most of LA gets off work?

I was watching the IU game when I realized the Pacers/Lakers game was tonight and not tomorrow as I thought. So I started watching both as the Hoosiers game turned into a blowout win. All I can say is that the quality of basketball in both games was so drastically different, and not how it "should" be. The professionals were playing like they had never seen a basketball before, while the kids were playing like World Champs. Really frustrating. And I'm talking as much about the Lakers as the Pacers.

We cannot continue to turn the ball over and commit dumb fouls on the road against Kobe, Pau, and Dwight. Gotta clean it up.
