Points Off Turnovers: Definition & Statistics

Basketball Statistics Analysis Referred Concepts"Points off Turnovers" are the points given by our TO or made by the turnovers forced to the opponent. Forcing turnovers is great, but you have to score points when you get those extra chances!
The eBA Basketball Statistics Analysis System records the Points off Turnovers in those two senses.

Some turnovers are continuing action plays (bad passes) and some are interrupted by a stoppage in play (travels, charging fouls, etc) .
Do we count points off of turnovers in each situation even when the defense has a full opportunity to establish itself?

If a shot is missed after the turnover followed by an offensive rebound and a subsequent score, is that still 'points off of the preceding turnover"?
In other words, when does the opportunity to create points off of a turnover end?

We can read at this eBA Recommended Site: CyberSports USA the following:
"Similar to points scored and rebounds, the number of turnovers is a misleading statistic. For turnover statistics to be of value the number of offensive possessions must be considered.

Turnovers percentage (turnovers/possessions) is the true indication of a team's ball handling performance. Normally, you would like to keep your turnovers percentage under 10%.

However, if you play an up-tempo game you can expect a higher turnover percentage (15% to 20%). This higher turnover percentage, in most cases, is offset by a higher field goal percentage resulting from more transition lay-ups.
When analyzing ball handling performance, it is also vital to look at the number of opponent points allowed off turnovers. Similar to an offensive rebound, teams must capitalize and score off turnovers for them to be of value.

If a team recovers and makes a defensive stop after a turnover, that turnover is cancelled or erased. Conversely, on defense, you need to evaluate the opponent’s turnover percentage and the points you are scoring off their turnovers."
