For example, the Denver Nuggets are +16 per 100 possessions when Nikola Jokic is on the court and -23 when he’s off. That’s a massive difference even for a player as great as the reigning MVP. What’s driving such a big difference? Well, Daryl Blackport of pbpstats.com added a new feature to his site that details how well opponents are shooting from beyond the arc when that player is either on or off the court. It turns out, opponent three-point percentage has a substantial influence on a player’s overall on/off numbers. For instance, in Denver’s case, opponents are shooting just 28 percent on 3s when Jokic is on the court and 36 percent with him off the court. I know Jokic is a big scary looking guy, but I don’t think he’s personally responsible for teams shooting as poorly as they are when he’s on the court.
