Our possession length breakdown shows how effective each offense is depending on the length of the possession.  Longer possessions can mean more chances to break down an offense.  They can also mean more chances to turn the ball over.  Splitting out possessions this way can help shed light on how offenses manage different situations. I put together a full post on this topic, which talks about the potential benefits of breaking down a team’s performance in this way.
