Default BA stat on NBA.Com

What is this? It appears right next to blocked shots and leads me to believe that a player had his shot blocked?

EX Jarret Jack is 0-2 and has two BA's.

Is this accurate?

Looking at http://www.nba.com/games/20071030/PO...scoreboardhome
and see it but I don't know

Anyone here know?

If no one knows, I'll call one of my nba.com friends and ask

I think you might be right.

I looked for a legend, but I couldn't find one.

Maybe BA means "blocks against"

which would mean you're right, it's how many times the player got blocked.

Has jack really been blocked 3 times? I've been working on stuff and haven't really seen this game

BA must mean "blocks against"

Because the spurs have 3 blocks

and the blazers have 3 BA's (all on jack)

Well the spurs have 3 blocked shots and jack has 3 BA's so it would make sense jack was rejected not once not twice but 3 times.

Which is why I said blocked attempts...meaning 3 of the 4 attempts Jack took were blocked...I don't understand what "blocks against" mean at all.

Blocks the Spurs Defense has made against him. It's gotta be that because Oberto swatted him around the 5 minute mark and it went from 2 to 3. So thats interesting that they are recording this and the new +/- stat should be looked into by some ISH stat junkies.
