¿Suena coherente el término "posesión ofensiva"? Ya busqué en Google, pero no encuentro una traducción adecuada. El término se encuentra en el último párrafo.


STEAL TO TURNOVER RATIO

In this month’s Thunder StatLab activity, we are going to explore the steal-to-turnover ratio. This ratio is one of many that is used to evaluate a player’s ball control and handling skills. Let’s breakdown the difference between a steal and a turnover.

A steal occurs when a player on defense takes possession of the basketball from an opposing player. A turnover is created when a player with the possession of the basketball loses possession as a result of their own error (throwing the basketball out-of-bounds) or an opposing player’s error.

1. Rank the players in order based on their steal-to-turnover from greatest to least, don’t forget to include any necessary symbols, , =, \
2. According to the box score, player D had the most steals, does this mean they had the highest steal-to-turnover ratio? Explain your answer.
3. According to the box score, player B had the most turnovers, does this mean they had the lowest steal-to-turnover ratio? Explain your answer.
4. Put on your coaching hat, based on only the box score above, which player would you want to be your point guard, or the player that would have the basketball in their hands to start every offensive possession?

Explanation:
Lo he oído en narraciones de manera frecuente. No veo porque no traducirlo de esa manera.

Aunque, si se ve practicamente, las posesiones en basketball casi siempre son ofensivas (salvo al final, que el equipo que va ganando trata de gastar la mayor cantidad de tiempo con el balón sin una ofensiva aparente, pero termina atacando, lo cual la hace ofensiva).

agree  JohnMcDove: Sí, en el contexto incluso solo "ofensiva" serviría... "Para empezar la ofensiva..."
