Calculating pace from boxscore - accuracy 

Post#1 » by D-Wins-RingsIMO » Sun Nov 15, 2009 6:47 am

If I was to estimate the # of possessions using say Dean Oliver's formula or something similar, what is the standard deviation for

a) 1 quarter
b) 1 half
c) 1 game

I assume this formula is pretty spot on when you look at 82 games, but how off can it get for smaller sample sizes?
