Membaca Boxscore dari Suatu Pertandingan Basket

Tahukah anda apa itu boxscore?
Bila anda pernah mencatat statistik suatu pertandingan olahraga, seperti basket, baseball, dsb, anda pasti familiar dengan istilah tersebut.

Boxscore adalah rangkuman dari statistik pertandingan yang detail hingga ke stats pemain-pemainya.
Di sebuah pertandingan basket, dengan melihat boxscore, anda dapat mengevaluasi pertandingan dan performa suatu tim.

Di dalam suatu pertandingan basket, terdapat stats-stats yang penting untuk dicatat, yakni sebagai berikut:

  • Minutes (MIN)
  • Menandakan waktu bermain suatu pemain dalam satuan menit.

  • Field Goals (FG)
  • Menandakan jumlah tembakan yang diambil suatu pemain.
    Field Goals biasanya dipisah menjadi 2: FG dan 3P. Field Goals sendiri adalah kombinasi dari 2P FG(tembakan 2 point) dan 3P FG(tembakan 3 point).

    • Field Goal: dipisah menjadi FGM-A (Field Goal Made: Jumlah field goal masuk) dan FGA (Field Goal Attempts: Jumlah field goal yang dilakukan)
    • 3Point Field Goal: dipisah menjadi 3PM-A (3Point Made: Jumlah tembakan 3Point masuk) dan FGA (3Point Attempts: Jumlah tembakan 3Point yang dilakukan)
  • Free Throw (FT)
  • Menandakan jumlah free throw yang dilakukan suatu pemain.
    FT juga dibagi menjadi FTM-A (Free Throw Made: jumlah free throw masuk dan Free Throw Attempts: jumlah free throw yang dilakukan).

  • Points (P/PTS)
  • Menandakan jumlah point yang didapatkan suatu pemain.

  • Rebound (REB)
  • Menandakan jumlah rebound yang didapatkan suatu pemain.
    Rebound dibagi menjadi 2: yaitu OFF (Offensive Rebound: rebound dari tembakan yang dilakukan ketika sedang menyerang) dan DEF (Defensive Rebound: rebound dari tembakan yang dilakukan musuh).

  • Assist (A/AST)
  • Menandakan jumlah assist yang dilakukan suatu pemain.
    Assist adalah operan terakhir sebelum terjadi suatu Field Goal. Bila penembak harus melakukan sesuatu untuk menghindari musuh, maka operan tersebut BUKAN merupakan assist.

  • Personal Foul (F/PF)
  • Menandakan jumlah foul yang didapatkan suatu pemain.
    Gabungan dari total personal foul dari suatu tim dalam satu kuarter disebut Team Foul, dan bila telah melebihi batas (biasanya 5), maka tim lawan akan mendapatkan free throw setiap kali tim tersebut melakukan foul.

  • Steal (S/STL)
  • Menandakan jumlah steal yang didapatkan suatu pemain.
    Steal adalah usaha merebut bola yang berhasil dari musuh ketika bola sedang dalam posesi musuh.

  • Block (B)
  • Menandakan jumlah block yang diambil suatu pemain.
    Block adalah usaha menggagalkan tembakan dari pemain lawan dengan tangan kita. Bila kita berhasil mengeblok musuh maka kita akan mendapatkan Blocked Shots (BS), sedangkan bila tembakan kita diblok musuh maka kita akan mendapatkan Blocked Against (BA).

  • Turn Over (TO)
  • Menandakan berapa kali suatu pemain melepaskan posesi bola ke musuh.
    Bila musuh melakukan steal pada kita atau kita mengakibatkan suatu bola mati yang menjadi milik musuh, maka kita akan mendapatkan Turn Over.

Berikut adalah contoh boxscore dari pertandingan NBA.
Gambar ini saya ambil dari situs http://www.nba.com

Dari gambar di atas, terdapat beberapa stats yang belum saya bahas di atas yaitu +/-.
+/- menandakan effectiveness dari suatu pemain dalam pertandingan tersebut. Namun stats ini hanya dipakai dalam NBA.

Jika kita perhatikan, dari setiap tim, hanya ada 5 orang yang POS (Position) nya ditulis. Lima orang tersebut adalah starter (pemain yang dimainkan saat game dimulai pertama kali) dari masing-masing tim.

Semoga tulisan ini bisa membantu anda membaca boxscore dari suatu pertandingan basket di kemudian hari :).

[Movie Reviews] Good Will Hunting – 1997

Hi guys, let’s talk about movies now shall we? ๐Ÿ˜€
I’ve seen this film three or four times, and it still amazes me every time i watch it..

This movie tells a story about Will Hunting (played by Matt Damon), a janitor in MIT, who appears to be a freaking genius in science! One day, a professor in MIT, in advance math, challenge his students to solve a problem in advance Fourier system (that’s something in math i think :p) and he write it in a hallway chalkboard. On the next day, it was solved but there is no one in his class who claims it. After some times, it was revealed that it was Will who solved the problem.

Will is an orphan who took a part time like being a janitor, builder, and mechanic. Despite the fact that he didn’t go to college, he is getting his knowledge from all the books he read. He had 3 friends: Morgan, Billy, and his best friend Chuckie (Ben Affleck). Because of his dark background, he is having a bad behavior. Because of an assault that was committed by Will, Will is facing an imprisonment. But the professor helped him in two condition, Will had to be in his supervision and have to do therapies. After accepting the offer, Will had to meet several therapists but each time he met them, he’s acting like a rascal that none of the therapists wanted to treat him. Facing this difficulty, the professor asked his college friend that became a psychologist named Sean Maguire (Robin Williams).

At first, it didn’t act well with the therapy session with Sean. But later Will actually growing more mature and became more open to Sean. Along the story Will had a romantic story with Skylar, a student in Harvard. Well, i don’t want to be a spoiler so should just watch the movie ๐Ÿ˜€

There is a particular scene when Sean told a story about his wife to Will. I’ll just copy it below:

Will: Yeah, but this girI was, Iike, you know, beautiful.
She’s smart. She’s fun. She’s different from most of the girIs I’ve been with.

Sean: So call her up, Romeo.
Will: Why, so I can realize she’s not that smart.
That she’s fuckin’ boring ?
You know, I mean, you don’t–
This girl’s, Iike, fuckin’ perfect right now. I don’t wanna ruin that.

Sean: Maybe you’re perfect right now.
Maybe you don’t wanna ruin that.
But I think that’s a super philosophy, WiII.
That way, you can go through your entire life without ever having to really know anybody.

Sean: My wife used to fart when she was nervous.
She had all sorts of wonderful idiosyncrasies.
You know, she used to fart in her sIeep.
Just thought I’d share that with you.
One night it was so loud,it woke the dog up.

[ Both Laughing ]

Sean: She woke up and gone, like,”Was that you ?”
I said, ”Yeah.” I didn’t have the heart to tell her. Oh, God.

Will: She woke herself up ? [ Laughing ]
Sean: Yes.
Oh, Christ. But, Will, she’s been dead two years and that’s the shit I remember.
It’s wonderfuI stuff, you know ?
Little things Iike that.

Sean: Yeah, but those are the things I miss the most.
Those little idiosyncrasies that only I knew about.
That’s what made her my wife.
Boy, and she had the goods on me too.
She knew all my little peccadillos.

Sean: People call these things ”imperfections,” but they’re not.
That’s the good stuff.
And then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds.

Sean: You’re not perfect, sport.
And let me save you the suspense.
This girl you met, she isn’t perfect either.
But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other.

Tips Menembak Bola

Hi guys..
Kali ini saya ingin berbagi sedikit mengenai bagaimana menembak bola basket dengan baik..
Dengan latihan dan banyak praktek kalian pun pasti bisa merasakan perbedaan dalam permainan kalian..
So here they are..

1. Kuasai bola sebelum menembak
Jika bola tidak dipegang dengan benar sebelum kita beranjak ke posisi menembak, akurasi pasti akan berkurang. Hal ini dikarenakan kemungkinan bola bergeser dari tangan cukup besar

2. Have a good look at the rim
Saat menembak kita harus mengetahui posisi dari ring. Dengan mengetahui dan memroses informasi dari letak ring sebelum melepaskan bola, kita dapat mengatur tenaga maupun arah tembakan kita

3. Manfaatkan tenaga kaki
Entah kita hendak melakukan jump shot atau tidak, tenaga yang dihasilkan dari kaki sangat berguna dalam menembak. Dengan tenaga kaki, kita tidak perlu mengeluarkan tenaga berlebih dari tangan. Khusus untuk jump shot, mungkin kita perlu membiasakan diri dengan berlatih melompat lalu menembak, bukan sebaliknya ataupun menembak sambil melompat. Hal ini sangat penting, karena kita harus mendapatkan feel dimana tenaga dari kaki tadi bisa disalurkan ke tangan saat kita melompat

4. Posisi tangan yang benar, kokang dan follow through
Kalo kita melihat pemain-pemain profesional, shooting form mereka biasanya sangat bagus. Posisi tangan saat menembak sangat berperan di sini. Tangan kanan (atau tangan utama yang digunakan untuk menembak) harus ditekuk membentuk lebih kecil atau sama dengan 90 derajat dengan lengan, seperti membentuk huruf L. Selain itu lengan tidak boleh terlalu melebar, idealnya tangan tegak sejajar dengan tubuh kita (Bisa dilihat di gambar di bawah).

posisi shooting

Pegang bola dengan jari, bukan dengan telapak tangan! Tidak seperti permainan yang menggunakan lemparan lainnya, menembak bola basket cukup dengan tenaga jari dan pergelangan tangan saja.
Tempelkan tangan kiri dengan halus pada bola, tidak dengan tenaga. Fungsi tangan kira hanya mengarahkan, bukan memberi tenaga tambahan. Tenaga cukup dari jari dan pergelangan tangan kanan saja.
Follow through setelah melempar. Ketika kita menggerakkan pergelangan tangan ke depan untuk melempar bola, biarkan jari-jari tangan kita bergerak dengan luwes ke arah kita melempar bola. Bila tidak, kemungkinan besar bola tidak akan mendapat tenaga yang seharusnya, bahkan mungkin saja mendapat gesekan yang menyebabkan arah bola melenceng.

Yak, demikian tips menembak dari saya. Semoga tips tersebut dapat membantu memperbaiki tembakan kita.
Akhir kata, untuk menjadi shooter yang handal diperlukan kerja keras.
It needs hundred of shots to know of the basics of shooting,
It needs thousands of shots to memorize the form, and
It needs millions of shots to be a good shooter.

My Very First Post

Hi all!

Despite i’m completely surrounded by deadlines (final assignment, projects, and those another damn assignments), for the first time i feel like writing something in a blog..

You know, even though i’m in an “extremely low motivation to do anything” condition, i want to talk about motivation right now.. ย ๐Ÿ˜€

ย So let’s start by defining motivation. According to wikipedia.org, Motivationย is the activation or energization of goal-oriented behavior. For simple, motivation is what you need to do what it takes to achieve your goals. ย So if you lack of motivation, you will find it hard to do everything you’re supposed to do, considering you have something to achieved ๐Ÿ˜€

So what makes people lose their motivation? From a discussion in a lecture, i found two things that generally caused it.

  1. Yourself (self management, behaviour, etc)
  2. Your environment (family, friends, culture, etc)

I don’t want to discuss which one is more significant, but i’d rather discuss how we can overcome those problems. I’m sure everyone have experienced a condition where they’re losing their motivation. So perhaps we can share our experience how we were able to overcome it.

I ‘ve experienced some unpleasant things myself that had to do with this motivation thing, but hey, who doesn’t, right? I guess, if i remember it correctly, i solved my problems back then from self consciousnes. I didn’t say i didn’t get any help or interference from the outside, but i think it’s ourselves that can make it everything right again, not from your parent’s help, or your friend’s support. Because when you don’t realize what’s wrong in you, and you don’t decide to fix it yourself, you’ll just repeating your mistakes again in the future.ย 

It’s a bit ironic that i can say those, since i myself is in a slightly better than an unmotivated person. But i really believe in my opinions. Even sometimes you will need something from others that can trigger your self consciousness, it’s really yourself that you can rely on. Oh, and never forget that you still have your God to ask for some help, though i’m often forget about it :p

That’s all i can say right now, and it’s not my last post yet, so we’ll see you again next time.. ๐Ÿ˜€
