not sure what it means - i mean there are ok giveaways when trying to make a play and then there's passing to an attacker in the slot
In a few other threads, there has been discussion about the liberal awarding of hits by the MSG scorers. Giveaways and takeaways are two stats that also vary pretty wildly in their awarding. It's a pretty subjective stat, really. I have no idea what it's like on an area-to-arena basis though. I've just never really put much stock in those stats.
