one interesting thing about the celtics though is they only returned one starter from last year and have played 6 rookies which might lead one to believe that while they are due for some regression they may also improve over the course of the season more than say a more settled team typically would

pelton was a big collins guy predraft:

5. Zach Collins

Gonzaga
Center
Big Board: No. 9
Stats: No. 5

Consensus: 2.1 WARP

Despite coming off the bench on a deep, experienced Gonzaga team that lost in the national championship game, Collins rated as the best Zag on a per-minute basis.

He's a high-percentage finisher with good touch at the free throw line. The limited need for traditional bigs hurts Collins, but he's skilled enough that he might be able to play both frontcourt spots in the pros.

lag∞n, Thursday, 28 December 2017 17:45 (one year ago) link

this is true but I was referring to making stats easy to find for fans, like for baseball you basically just need fangraphs, baseball reference, and statcast to be fluent in baseball stat conversations. with basketball half of the stats dudes like zach lowe talk about are either proprietary, you have to pay for it, or it’s spread out over like 20 sites

k3vin k., Thursday, 28 December 2017 17:48 (one year ago) link

where baseball is just more a natural fit for statistical analysis so its flourished there, and even long before the analytics revolution baseball was always more numbers minded

lag∞n, Thursday, 28 December 2017 17:53 (one year ago) link

with basketball stats always need to be contextualized and the best of the new breed are the more granular infos like shot distributions player tracking etc so it makes sense that its filtered through writers to make sense of it all, in contrast to baseball where u can throw out a good catch all stat like WAR thats actually useful, having said that it wld be cool if that granular data was more available and presented in good visualizations etc

baseball has so many isolated, individual actions (batting and pitching) that happen thousands of times in the exact same way over there course of the season

football seems like it's even more difficult for analytics than basketball, like an individual running play - did the back make a great move or power through contact? did the blocking scheme result in a big hole? did an individual o lineman overpower someone? did someone take a bad angle? tackle poorly? misread the play? seems nearly impossible to use analytics in meaningful ways

heaves?

micah, Thursday, 28 December 2017 21:46 (one year ago) link

this is an interesting discussion

part of the problem as alluded to upthread is that the baseball stat revolution happened before anyone including teams realized such information was worth being commodified, so bill james, tom tango etc were just working in the public sphere bcuz they had no choice. so pretty much the entire foundation of advanced stats in baseball is publicly available formulas. basketball came after that commodification... ben falk's site is a great example of something that would have been free if it started even 5 years ago.

i do wonder if there's some market for a fangraphs of basketball, basically... a place that centralizes the main advanced stats and publicizes some proprietary info (fangraphs buys info from firms) while also running an editorial site that contextualizes all of that w/ articles. maybe this exists and i don't know about it but it seems like the current relationship b/w basketball writing and basketball stats are sites that publish the stats and then writers that contextualize on mainstream sites or smaller blogs.

J0rdan S., Friday, 29 December 2017 18:41 (one year ago) link

seems like "the analytically minded basketball fan" has kinda moved on from advanced stats to understanding basketball plays which is interesting in that it runs contrary to numbers guys hierarchy of knowledge

lag∞n, Friday, 29 December 2017 18:51 (one year ago) link

but i think its correct as far as how basketball functions the scheme is the most fundamental thing its the context on which everything else depends

lag∞n, Friday, 29 December 2017 18:52 (one year ago) link

statistic strives to normalize the scheme in order to make an apples to apples comparison across the league but its just really hard, maybe impossible, and maybe not that useful from a teams perspective for actual basketball business which is interesting

lag∞n, Friday, 29 December 2017 18:56 (one year ago) link

the big catch all stats are failures but the granular data is easily understood within the context of the scheme and is translatable across schemes if you understand the schemes

lag∞n, Friday, 29 December 2017 19:01 (one year ago) link

like is some blackbox defensive metric saying the giannis isnt that good of a defender for who knows what reason, well when we examine the player tracking data it says he is a very good defender in all aspects of the game except on the perimeter, when we look at his perimeter defense it says hes excellent when matched up with his man but struggles when switching, what do we know about the bucks defensive scheme, we know that it encourages tons of chaotic double teams and switching which doesnt work good, from out investigation we can conclude that giannis contrary to what the fancy advanced stat says in is fact likely an excellent defender who is playing in a bad scheme and would thrive in a good one, which not coincidentally is the same conclusion one wld reach by watching him play, thank u this has been my nba stats fan fic

lag∞n, Friday, 29 December 2017 19:09 (one year ago) link

now u cld try to create a stat which notices when everyone on a team tends to struggle in certain areas and labels it scheme and tries to account for it but it prob wldnt work and whats the point anyway like maybe its a scheme issue or maybe its a personnel which is a differentiation which is easy for a human to understand and very difficult for a computer to and youre never going to have a 100% quant basketball team so why not let the computers do the stuff theyre good at and let the humans do the stuff they are, humans are gonna make the decisions anyway

like understanding all the movements and battles away from the ball in football help contextualize the action that draws your eyes, whereas in basketball when i read about that stuff the game starts to feel orchestrated and motorized in a way i find dispiriting

huh weird wldnt have thought of that i feel like it helps me see the game better and plays in basketball are so much more wide open than in football anyway, theyre just sketches really, also the best nba players consistently destroy all schemes employed against them which is a neat feature and a good argument against stats tendency to value efficiency above everything and glorify role players who like hit a lot of open threes

reading about nba at a granular level has def improved my understanding and enjoyment of the game, but i think it's mostly about the way pick and rolls playout, defensive coverages generally etc. reading about set plays and that kinda stuff doesn't appeal to me much right now, tho it can be fun to recognize plays happening in real time

could be why:

Last season, DeRozan took 31% of his shots from 16 ft to the 3 pt line. 8% of his shots were 3s.

So far this season (before tonight's game), the long 2s are down to 18.7% and 3s are up to 16.3%.

Josh Jackson shot 0-of-13 from the field on Sunday, scoring two points with four rebounds and one turnover in 22 minutes.

According to Basketball-Reference, Jackson is the 21st player since 1963-64 to attempt at least 13 shots without a single make. He's also just the fourth bench player to hit that dubious mark, joining Derrick Favors (2012), Dino Radja (1993) and Junior Bridgeman (1984).

The thunder will probably be more fun to watch without roberson but:

How much will the Thunder miss Andre Roberson's defense? In 539 minutes with Roberson joining Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony and Steven Adams on the floor, the Thunder allowed a measly 95.9 points per 100 possessions. In 402 minutes for the Thunder's four starters without Roberson, they allow 114.5 points per 100 possessions.

The Cavaliers are 2-4 since the All-Star break and are allowing 109.7 points per 100 possessions over that span (they gave up 109.8 points per 100 possessions before the break). But a bigger head-scratcher could be the lineups the Cavaliers use. The grouping of LeBron James along with new arrivals Rodney Hood, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and George Hill has recorded a point differential of plus-15 since the break but has played only 12 minutes together. -

Let's talk about confounding variables. In this case, minutes played is a confounding variable. When Westbrook plays fewer minutes, naturally he shoots less.
