NBA PVOA numbers: 11-11-07 games

Here are the PVOA, or "point value over average" performances for the offense and defense of each team that played last night. Remember, PVOA purports to show how "well" a team played, regardless of score and regardless of the level of opposition, because it measures a team's performance against the average number of points the team it played would be expected to score and allow in the same number of possessions.

For instance, based on PVOA, even though the Pistons beat the Sonics by 4, the Sonics actually played well, while the Pistons did not. New Orleans was an outstanding all-around team yesterday. And while the Heat won, their offense was awful; they won because they played the best defense any team has played to date this season. And the Bucks... well, their defense never even showed up against San Antonio.
