Jazz vs Lakers Dashboard (Preseason - 10/25/13)

Here's the dashboard for the preseason game against the Lakers on October 25, 2013. For information on how these charts work, see the links here and here.

First up are the "wonder bread" starter effectiveness and value charts. Looks like Blake and Gasol had all-star type games; while our starters did well.

Note that the size of the dot on the "effectiveness" graphs is related to the players' estimated PER value, the bigger the dot the higher the players' PER value; whereas the size of the dot on the "value" graphs is related to the players' Approximate Value score (a stat counter type number), and the bigger the dot the higher the players' Approximate Value score.

The next series shows the ten players with the most minutes from each team and their effectiveness and value. Side note, Cook looks lonely in these graphs.

Jazz Value

Laker Value

Now the four factors.

As in the game versus the Clippers, the Jazz took more shots and made more shots than their opponent (shots: 91 to 80; makes 41 to 40). However, the Lakers made four more three pointers than the Jazz and that gave them a two point advantage in points off baskets.

Shooting

The Lakers took 21 free throws and the Jazz took 20 free throws. So not much of an advantage for the Lakers here, but they hit 18 of their free throws while the Jazz only made 15.

Free Throws

The next graphic shows that the Jazz out rebounded the Lakers; with the Jazz having a higher rate of offensive rebounds on the Lakers' side of the floor than the Lakers had on the Jazz' side.

The Jazz grabbed 80.0% of the boards on their side versus 67.7% that the Lakers grabbed on their side. Can't complain about that.

Rebounds

The Jazz held on to the ball significantly better than the Lakers (turnover rate of 13.0% to 16.8%). This was a great improvement over the Jazz' previous game.
