Play Index: Turnover Type in Event Finder

Posted by David Corby on March 11, 2014

Just a note that we've added turnover type to our Play Index Event Finder tool.

In particular, you can now find any of the following for a team or player:

  • Offensive Fouls
  • Bad/Stolen Passes
  • Lost Ball Turnovers
  • Traveling Violations
  • Palming Violations
  • Double Dribbles

... with more turnover categories to come at some point. You can find the Event Finder as the first linked item on our Play Index+ page:

This table is a supplement to our Play by Play tables on the player pages, which we added at the beginning of the season.

  1. Would it be possible to add offensive fouls drawn by defenders?

  2. @Rally - That's definitely something we plan to add.

  3. Don Michaels Says:

    Is it possible to search for AND1s and 4-point plays?

  4. @Don - It's possible to add both of those. We have And-1s on the player page play-by-play tables right now. Will get it into the Play Index tool at some point (and will be sure to distinguish 3-pt & 4-pt)

  5. Don Michaels Says:

    @David - And-1s on player page play-by-play tables include all "Field goals on which the player is fouled", without distinguishing 2-pt and 3-pt shots, as you said, and also include missed free throw attempts. This is different than the "standard" definition of And-1s (sometimes called traditional or old-fashioned three-point play) of only including 2-pt shots AND a made free throw. I would suggest to include both in play-by-play tables by putting the traditional And-1s first and move the totals with missed free throws in parenthesis.

  6. @Don - You're right that that's potentially confusing. I plan to work on the play-by-play tables in a month or two and will see what I can do to make this clear. Thanks.

  7. Don Michaels Says:

    @David - Great. Thanks.
