### Why are we so focused on how many points we score on our scoring sheet?

When we’re talking about a basketball game, the focus tends to shift to how many shots we score.

When we play hockey, the same logic tends to apply: Who has the puck more?

Is the team with more players having more chances?

And yet, there are many factors that can make or break a score.

In this article, I’ll be taking a look at what can make a difference in a basketball or hockey game.

1.

Goal Differentials In hockey, a player’s goal differential is the difference between a team’s goal total and the number of goals scored by their opponent.

The goal differential tells us the relative number of shots the opponent has to score to win the game.

It’s an indicator of a team going to the offensive end, rather than the defensive end.

In basketball, a goal differential can tell us the difference in points scored between teams.

In the example above, a team with a goal difference of 0.5 would have the same number of points as a team that had a goal average of 1.5 points per 100 possessions.

The reason for this is simple.

In hockey the scoring margin is based on the number and type of shots a team is able to take.

In a hockey game, a shot is scored when a team has a player who can shoot it and the opposing team has one or more players who can’t.

In basketball, however, a point is scored at the end of the game, when a player scores the winning point and his team is eliminated from the playoffs.

If a team wins the game and gets to the playoffs, then a team will have a higher point differential because its shooting percentage will be higher.

2.

Power Plays Power plays are plays in which the team has possession of the ball and a player with a high number of rebounds, assists, and steals.

Power plays also can be defined as offensive or defensive plays, depending on the level of play in a game.

Power is scored by a team if it has possession in the paint or is in front of the rim.

If a team can score at least 30 points on the power play, it’s winning.

If it scores fewer than 30 points, it wins the possession.

3.

Defense On offense, a defense is a group of players, usually a small number of people, who defend the basket and help the other players.

A defensive player is called a post player and is often the same person who defends the basket.

A post player is often a player like LeBron James, whose name is well-known for his ability to defend the rim and score a lot of points.

In sports, a defensive player can also be a big man, who defends his position.

A big man defends his spot.

4.

Defensive rebounds A defensive rebound is a point a team collects when the ball is deflected and is returned to the basket by a player.

The point value on a defensive rebound can range from zero to a few hundred.

A team can win with a defensive turnover if it’s the first offensive rebound the opposing player has on the same possession.5.

Defenses on offense If the opponent is attempting a steal or a dunk, then the defender is responsible for stopping the attempt.

If the opposing offense makes a play with an open basket, then they are responsible for recovering it.

If both teams have possession in one possession, they are not responsible for the rebound.

If either team has two or more offensive rebounds, the defender should either recover the offensive rebound or the defensive rebound.6.

Offensive rebounds If the offense is able with a steal, a dunk or a layup, then it should be responsible for collecting the offensive rebounds.

If neither team has any offensive rebounds on their possession, then there is no obligation to collect the offensive points.7.

Offense on defense Defensive rebounds are a play where the offense can make an offensive play.

This plays is where the defensive team defends the offensive team.

The offensive team does not need to be in the lane to make an offense and a defense can still happen.

Offensive points are scored when the offensive player scores a free throw or a free-throw attempt.

8.

Defensive rebounds Offensive rebounds can also come from the defensive player, the rebounder, or a teammate.

Offensive players can be defenders, rebounders, and teammates.

Offensive player is the player who was on the offensive side of the basket in the last possession.

Defensive player is a player whose defensive player was on his own side of a defensive zone and the player’s rebounder was on a neutral zone.

A rebounder is the individual who can make the first shot of a possession by taking the offensive or offensive rebound and returning the ball to the offense.

9.

Offense on defense When the offense scores a basket, the defensive players are responsible to prevent the offense from scoring another basket.

Offense is the scoring attempt that prevents the opposing offensive player from scoring again.
