Statistics

Post by W00kle on Wed Feb 16, 2011 5:22 am

Hey all,

I've tried googling it but to no avail.


Can someone please explain how the +/- stats are worked out in the NBA.

Obviously I understand its in relation to a players stats against his direct opposition.

But what calculation is used to work it out.

Cheers guys

Say I'm on the floor. When I'm on the floor and my team outscores my opponent by 5. I will have a +5......

Basically its how much you outscore or are outscored while that particular player is in the game.

The +/- stat is tied to team performance during the time that that particular player is on the court. The games official scorer records the differential in terms of gain (plus) or loss (minus).

By way of example, if David Lee enters the game with the score tied at 80 to 80, and leaves with his team ahead by 3, he gets a plus 3. Conversely, if he enters with his team ahead by 13, and leaves with a 3 point lead, he gets a minus-10.

These numbers are added up throughout the game until at the end you have your final +/- for each player that you see in the box score.

It's the plus and minus differential for when each player is on the court. Much like these nice gentlemen have already explained to you.

Thanks for the info guys. I thought they rolled all stats together somehow. ( including rebounds assists etc)

Nice to know now just relates to points
