qSQ: quantified shot quality

Quote:
During the first few games of this season, no team's results have been more removed from the quality of the shots they're getting and allowing than Dallas. The Mavericks' offensive qSQ (54.1 percent) ranks third in the league, but their actual 51.1 percent effective shooting is just 17th -- worse than league average. It's the reverse at the other end of the court, where Dallas' opponents have the ninth-worst shot quality (51.7 percent) but have actually posted a league-high 57.6 percent eFG.

[...]

When the shooting evens out, it should reveal the Mavericks playing above-average defense. They've allowed opponents 3-point attempts at a league-average rate and rank in the top 10 in preventing shots at the rim.
