I’m working on an adjusted efficiency NBA Power Ranking. I calculated the Bucks numbers. Through six games, the Bucks defense is good, but the offense is not. The Bucks are currently scoring -8.0 points per game less than the rest of the NBA would have scored against the same schedule and given the same number of possessions. But, the Bucks are allowing -1.2 points less using the same measurement. So that’s a tiny bit of good news.
Still though, the Bucks overall adjusted differential is a vomit inducing -6.8, which would project to a season record of around 25 wins and 57 losses. That would be a disaster.
More analysis to follow. I’ve been really busy this week, hence the few number of posts, but I’m going to try to play catch up.
