Helsinki Seagulls Team Preview





Getting excited about an offensive efficiency of 116.5 is going a bit overboard with an above-average offense. And nothing more than that. Now that we know what the overall offense looks like, it is time to understand why this offense is the way it is.

Their True Shooting Percentage is .595, which is considered to be above average. Their Effective Field Goal Rate is .560, which considered to be above average. Compared to the rest of the league, there is a sense of neutrality about ball movement. They are doing an above average job of preventing live ball turnovers (steals). An opponent steals rate of 8.3% is not something to brag about, but it is far better to not have it be a problem.They have an offensive rebounding rate of 22.3% this season. They are a below average rebounding team.

Their defensive efficiency is 103.1, 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.

They yield a True Shooting Percentage of .525 which is a sign of a strong defense. This is a decent defensive team that is able to force some bad shots. They successfully retrieved 68.7% of opponent missed shots. They are a slightly above average defensive rebounding team.

Nothing will blow you away about their ability to force live ball turnovers. Their Blocks Rate is 5.4% which is considered to be below average.

KTP Basket Team Preview





You should not have high expectations considering their offensive efficiency is 113.4, but relatively speaking it is still a slightly above-average offense. This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just an offensive efficiency rating.

Their True Shooting Percentage is .579, which is considered to be slightly above average. Their Effective Field Goal Rate is .545, which considered to be slightly above average. Ball movement is not important at all in this offense when setting up shot attempts. They may run a lot of isos. Turnovers are an issue for them. A 10.7% steals rate yielded is a bit higher than average.They successfully retrieved 26.4% of their missed shots. They are a slightly above average rebounding team.

Their defensive efficiency is 116.8, there is a lot of work to do here. 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 .566 which is considered to be slightly below average. They are an average team when it comes to the shot quality of their opponents. They successfully retrieved 67.9% 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 6.4%, which is considered to be slightly above average.
