The NBA defensive stats give you an analytical tool for each team’s defense in the NBA. In a game controlled by a 30 second shot clock, defense affects the number and quality of the opponents scoring opportunities. Defense is a very important aspect in wagering because it determines number of points allowed to be scored. This detrimentally affects the over under in wagering, favoring the under in a team with above average defensive stats. Among the elite skilled athletes in the NBA are some who have an ability to score despite every effort on defense. But even in those situations, the defensive effort must be overcome by a greater effort from the offense. The extra effort over time will wear an opponent down, reduce opportunities, and contain scoring.
Defense is critical. Even a quick glance at successful teams will show they are almost always among the leaders in low field goal percentages, among the leaders in making the opponent miss shots.
