Formula – How to calculate Team Possessions
Team Possessions is calculated as:
0.5 * (Team Stats + Opponent Stats)
Team Stats = (Team Field Goals + 0.4 * Team Free Throw Attempts – 1.07 * (Team Offensive Rebounds / (Team Offensive Rebounds + Opponent Defensive Rebounds)) * (Team Field Goal Attempts – Team Field Goals) + Team Turnovers)
Opponent Stats = (Opponent Field Goal Attempts + 0.4 * Opponent Free Throw Attempts – 1.07 * (Opponent Offensive Rebounds / (Opponent Offensive Rebounds + Team Defensive Rebounds)) * (Opponent Field Goal Attempts – Opponent Field Goals) + Opponent Turnovers)
