Paulistano Team Preview





Their offensive efficiency is 104.4, which makes them a below average offense and that means there is room for improvement, but will they actually improve? This analysis would be woefully incomplete without going into further detail aside from just an offensive efficiency rating.

Their True Shooting Percentage is .510, which is terrible. Their Effective Field Goal Rate is .481, which is terrible. 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 8.7% is not something to brag about, but it is far better to not have it be a problem.They successfully retrieved 26.7% of their missed shots. They are a slightly above average rebounding team.

They have an elite level defense and fans may not appreciate it because they get so fixated on scoring, dunks, and drama, but this defense is as good as it gets right now. A defensive effiency rating of 101.1 would certainly justify such praise. 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 .518 which is a sign of a strong defense. They are doing a great job forcing bad shots from opposing offenses. Bad shots should result in defensive rebounds and run outs. They have an defensive rebounding rate of 66.8% this season. They are a below average defensive rebounding team.

Nothing will blow you away about their ability to force live ball turnovers. Their Blocks Rate is 4.8% which is considered to be below average.

Corinthians Team Preview





You should not have high expectations considering their offensive efficiency is 111.6, 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.

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 9.4% 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 22.2% this season. They are a below average rebounding team.

Their defensive efficiency is 106.2, which means they have an above average defense relative to other teams in the league. Now that we know what the overall defense looks like, it is time to understand why this defense is the way it is.
