2017-2018 POE

Points Over Expectation (POE) is a metric that tries to explain the following question: How well does a player perform compared to how we’d expect an average player to perform?

To do this, POE turns to data on the NBA’s website about Synergy play types and uses a regression or two along with some more basic math to calculate values. League average points per possession data is used to set the bar for expected performance.

POE = Offense (positive values good) – Defense (positive values bad)
