A numerical value indicating the efficiency of the shot, which is the sum of the three hit success rates
To everyone who opened this article, welcome to the quagmire of numbers. I, Shintaro, a self-proclaimed “amateur who takes the best stats in Japan,” would like to introduce and explain “advanced stats,” which is a step beyond the box score (basic stats) on the official website .
Previously, I introduced “eFG%”, which represents the true shooting success rate, but I personally value it, and Yuta Watanabe’s rise to the top of the NBA is a stat called “TS% (True Shooting %), which is a hot topic. I would like to unravel the.
“TS%” is a statistic that can accurately calculate a player’s efficiency by calculating the percentage of three shots made: 2-point shot percentage, 3-point shot percentage, and free throw shot percentage.
The denominator formula seems to be the concern, so let’s clear it up.
① 『0.44 × FTA 』 This expresses the number of shots that lead to free throws. If you get fouled while trying to throw a 2 point shot, it will be 0.5 x FTA because it is 2 FTA. (When I checked it personally, it changed a little in league B, but it was a mistake, so I used a general formula)
(2) Multiply “FGA+(0.44×FTA)” by 2. This represents the total points scored if all shots were 2 point shots. By interpreting this formula, you can measure how likely a player is to score a shot, assuming all of his shots are two-point shots. In other words, it can be seen to be an index that measures shooting efficiency rather than scoring rate. Let’s look at what kind of situations it makes sense.
Assuming that player A scored 24 points and player B scored 34 points, player B scored more points, but looking at the scoring rate, player A appears to be a more efficient player. However, since player A’s TS% was 54% and player B’s was 61%, player B was found to have better shooting efficiency (although the scoring rate was lower).
Sorry for the long introduction, but let’s take a look at the TS% ranking at the end of Section 6. * Ranked by players who have participated in 9 or more games
|rank||team||player||number of games||average score||TS%||2FG%||3FG%||FT%|
|4||SR Shibuya||Soichiro Inoue||9||2.7||72.69%||0.00%||54.50%||75.00%|
|8||SR Shibuya||Kevin Jones||11||19.2||69.70%||64.63%||48.00%||75.00%|
|9||Chiba J||Nishimura fumed||9||4.4||69.54%||50.00%||47.80%||75.00%|
|11||SR Shibuya||You Nishino||11||8.1||68.08%||65.96%||50.00%||63.20%|
|16||Chiba J||Gavin Edwards||11||7.3||66.31%||70.59%||28.60%||71.40%|
|19||SR Shibuya||Kosuke Ishii||11||10.4||65.76%||56.41%||44.70%||86.40%|
|20||Chiba J||Christopher Smith||10||15.2||65.07%||54.90%||45.60%||90.00%|
|21||Kawasaki||Michael Young Jr.||11||11.5||64.89%||64.71%||26.70%||81.30%|
|27||FE Nagoya||Reya Nosaki||11||7.6||64.10%||65.12%||36.80%||87.50%|
As with the previous eFG% ranking, the top 3 players who have established a solid position deserve attention of course, but Soichiro Inoue (SR Shibuya), who came 4th with his 3-point shot as a weapon, and a screener purposeful. Meanwhile, Caleb Tazzoski (Gunma), who shows high finishing power as a pick-and-roll roller, Fumio Nishimura (Chiba J.), who scored few points but reached the top 10 with his playing style of appearing stunning from the bench and scoring points. ) is noteworthy.
