is this a method you believe in? It uses opponents expected effective field goal percentage, divided by their actual effective field goal percentage? This measure tells us how a team defends shots above the league average percentages given its defensive shot distribution.

Obviously 1.00 is the league average. I was a bit surprised to see OKC have the highest rating here. The usual suspects, Boston, Miami, Orlando, etc are up there as well.

Hollinger's formula has many of the same top teams defensively. I am not sure the equation Hollinger uses, but it appears he simply uses the same measure to rate a team offensively, and weighs by actuals in the team defensive ratings, but I am not sure
