NBA PVOA numbers for 11-10-2007 games

Below are my calculations of each team's PVOA offensive and defensive performances from last night's games, Saturday Nov. 10th. I did them while watching the Packers dumptruck the Minnesota Vikings. (What is PVOA?)

Notes...

Portland had a tremendous night on both ends of the court against the Dallas Mavericks. The Blazers look like an all-around improved basketball team. One wonders what they would be if they had Greg Oden. The Jazz had a nice all around night, as well. Toronto is looking like a monster. Meanwhile, their opponent, the Bulls, already a bad offensive team, took a great leap backward last night... on their homecourt. In fact, the Bulls had the worst offensive performance of the year by PVOA standards. And remember, PVOA is opponent neutral. It compares a team's performance against the expected performance of the average team in the same situation. So the Bulls -31.23 performance means they scored nearly 32 points less than the rest of the Raptors' opponents have scored against them in the same number of possessions.
