Basics of modern basketball statistics lies behind the possession fact which must be considered as the key element to calculate team efficiency. The ball can only change hands four different ways:

(1) by making a shot;

(2) by missing a shot and not getting the offensive rebound;

(3) by turning the ball over; and

(4) by going to the line for two or three shots and either making the last shot or not getting the rebound of a missed last shot.

POSSESSION =(Field Goal Attempts)+(Turnovers)+0.4*(Free Throw Attempts) – 1.07*(Offensive Rebounding Percentage)*(Missed Shots)

PACE is the number of possessions a team uses per game.

OFFENSIVE EFFICIENCY is the number of points a team scores per 100 possessions.

DEFENSIVE EFFICIENCY is the number of points a team allows per 100 possessions.

CORRELATION is a value between -1 and +1 that describes the degree of relationship between two variables. Defensive correlations are negative because lower defensive efficiency means better defense.
