In honor of this past weekend’s MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, let’s take a look at some stats that may surprise. The new NBA.com stats database provides a deeper look into traditional statistics, and offers new ways to illustrate the data.
First, we’ll take a look at the NBA’s leader scoring, Carmelo Anthony, and how he’s getting it done in the first quarter. Then we’ll see just how many of Tyson Chandler’s attempts come near the basket. Finally, a look at how reliant the Knicks are on the three-point shot.
All stats and charts from NBA.com/stats.
