Block Percentage


If your offensive block percentage is very low, you need to be more aggressive going to the basket. You don't get the good things if you can't accept the negatives. Blocked shots, unlike turnovers, very often don't hurt you. I am willing to bet that the offensive team winds up scoring on at least 50% of possessions where a shot is blocked. Is it worth getting your shot blocked four times if you're also going to get 6 free throws out of it?
