John Hollinger’s Game Score equation was created to summarize performance in a box score for one game. Athletes that accumulate high numbers of points, assists, rebounds, steals…etc score the highest. Here is the Game Score Equation:

John Hollinger’s Game Score: PTS + (0.4 * FG) – (0.7 * FGA) – (0.4*(FTA – FTM)) + (0.7 * ORB) + (0.3 * DRB) + STL +( 0.7 * AST) + (0.7 * BLK) – (0.4 * PF) – TOV
