Their defensive efficiency is 107.3, which means they have an above average defense relative to other teams in the league. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just a defensive efficiency rating.

Glasgow Rocks Team Preview





They have a completely dreadful offense that makes announcers try to spin things positively and fans cringe. An offensive effiency rating of 94.6 can certainly do that. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just an offensive efficiency rating.

Their True Shooting Percentage is .509, which is terrible. Their Effective Field Goal Rate is .482, which is terrible. They tend to score a bit more off the dribble than most. Opponents are picking their pocket quite a bit. A 11.5% steals rate is considered to be quite poor. They have an abysmal offensive rebounding rate of 21.3% this season. Offensive rebounding is not their thing, it should be important. They are socially distancing on the offensive glass!

You should not have high expectations considering their defensive efficiency is 111.5, but relatively speaking it is still a rather average defense. Now that we know what the overall defense looks like, it is time to understand why this defense is the way it is.

They yield a True Shooting Percentage of .559 which is considered to be above average (in a good way). They are an average team when it comes to the shot quality of their opponents. They successfully retrieved 67.8% of opponent missed shots. They are a slightly above average defensive rebounding team.

Sometimes defenses are very focused on forcing bad shots and getting the defensive rebound. Is there anything to support this? It may be just possible that this is a passive defense. Their Blocks Rate is 6.2%, which is considered to be slightly above average.
