Quantcast

Let’s hope that, in about three weeks, we’re not wishing Brad and the Boys had kept Friday night’s “show”-ing against the reigning-and-defendings in their back pocket.

Through three quarters of play, the Celts cruised to a 34-point advantage by converting over half (38 of 75) their possessions and limiting the Raps to barely one-out-of-three (27-for-74, .365).

“Three DDD”

In its last 96 minutes of competition, the Boston defense has induced a miss on essentially three of every four opponent trey attempts – 52 failures on 70 tries.

League-wide for the first eight days and 43 “seeding” games (NOT including Friday’s games), the three-ball has been dropping at a .363 clip, exactly 1,100 makes in 3,028 launches. [That’s compared to .357 pre-Bubble.]

Note re Calculation & Notation:

The number of “possessions” is an accurate count, not a formula-based estimated value. For purposes of clarity, the bracketed digit following the FT% is the exact count of “conversions” represented by those FTA’s.

“Possessions” calculation: FGA’s + FT conversions + TO’s – OR’s (including Team OR’s) – FT OR’s

“Conversions” calculation: FG’s + FT conversions

“Stripes” calculation: 3FG’s – missed FTA’s

TS% = True Shooting Percentage

PPP = Points per Possession

CV% = Conversion Percentage

Do my eyes deceive me – or has the Timelord added some bulk to what had always seemed a rather slender frame? (Where's Mr. Lane when we could use his expert analysis?)
