Efficiency Ratings: Florida State

Using an NBA Efficiency Rating Formula, TDD tracks the best statistical performances of the season

A quick way NBA coaches measure a player's game performance is by evaluating his efficiency. In order to find a player's efficiency the following formula is used:

((Points + Rebounds + Assists + Steals + Blocks) - ((Field Goals Att. - Field Goals Made) + (Free Throws Att. - Free Throws Made) + Turnovers)).

For example, compare the following stat lines:

Player A: 17 points (5-of-22 FG, 7-9 FT), 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, 4 turnovers.

Player B: 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 4 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 turnovers

Latest Game:

Cook scored a season-high 26 points and Jahlil Okafor was 5 of 5 from the floor in the second half and finished with 13 points against Florida State. Tyus Jones added 16 points, 12 assists and six rebounds for Duke (21-3, 8-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), which won its fourth straight.

While the Seminoles kept Okafor in check in the first half, holding him to just two points on a pair of free throws in eight minutes, he broke out in the second half.

He had eight points in less than three minutes early in the second half, the last one an emphatic dunk to put Duke ahead 40-29 with 17:14 left in the game.

Okafor has scored in double figures in 24 straight games, breaking Johnny Dawkins' record for the longest scoring streak by a Blue Devils freshman.

Duke shot 23 of 51 (45.1 percent) from the floor, bouncing back after opening 0 for 8 from the floor.

vs. FLORIDA STATE

(change from previous game)
  • Jahlil Okafor +16 (-12)
  • Justise Winslow +7 (-19)
  • Tyus Jones +27 (+5)
  • Quinn Cook +19 (+9)
  • Amile Jefferson +7 (+1)
  • Grayson Allen -1 (-8)
  • Matt Jones -2 (-19)
  • Marshall Plumlee +9 (+5)



Notes: Jones tied his season high with a +27 and for a while it seemed as though the freshman point guard was on pace for the program’s first triple-double since Shelden Williams. Meanwhile, Duke’s other starting guard, Quinn Cook, connected for a season high 26 points on 8-of-15 shooting from the field. Cook managed just a +19, however, due in large part to recording zero assists and steals against two turnovers.

Okafor was efficient in spots, but was held largely in check by the platoons of big men from Florida State.

Off the bench Duke saw Matt Jones go from a +17 against Notre Dame to a -2 as the sophomore shooting guard missed all five of his field goal attempts against the Noles.
