Default Shooting Observations From 82 Games.com

  • Utah attempts 41% of their shots from the inside, and scores a league leading 38.7ppg from the inside. The points should increase when Carlos Boozer returns, and Deron Williams returns to health.
  • On the flipside, Toronto only scores 24.9ppg from the inside. This is the league's worst average.
  • Denver leads the league in dunks, and OKC is surprisingly third.
  • Charlotte, New Jersey, and Toronto lead the league in getting their inside buckets blocked.
  • Dirk Nowitzki and The Mavericks are the best midrange shooting team in the NBA.
  • 49% of OKC's shot attempts are midrange jumpers, they are only converting 34.3% of those attempts. Yuck. Keep taking it to the rack kids.
  • Philly is shooting only 29.3% from 3pt range. I knew they were suspect from deep, but that number jumps off the screen. The 6ers know their limitations and only 15% of their shot attempts are from deep.
  • The San Antonio Spurs only have 20 Dunks on the year. There will be no Spurs selected in the All Time Dunker Draft.
  • Boston leads the league in And1s, this is a testament to the greatness of Leon Powe.
  • Mike D'Antoni's Knicks are a doughnut team, they score a lot from deep and inside, but do not attempt or convert a lot of midrange Js.

  • Orlando is the league's most balanced team shot selection wise in the NBA. 32% of their shots are three point attempts, 33% of their shots attempts are midrange, and 34% of their attempts are inside attempts. With Dwight Howard downlow their percentage of inside attempts should be higher.

  • New Jersey's softness downlow is evident in the stats. The have the least amount of assisted inside buckets in the NBA. The majority of their inside buckets come from the drives of Devin Harris and Vincent Lamar Carter.

  • Utah has the highest percentage of it's shots being the result of assists. This is a testament to the ball movement that Jerry Sloan's offense stresses.

  • Golden State gets a high number of it's midrange jumpers rejected.

  • Millsap has been the main reason for this. In Boozer's absence Paul has been attacking the interior at a very high rate, even higher than Boozer.

  • The Raptors two supposed interior players JO and Bosh are shooting 64% and 60% of their shots from mid range respectively.

  • The skinny Durant has been a monster, he is 6th in the NBA with 43 dunks

  • Yeah this is mainly because of Dirk. He is getting a league high 13.8 ppg from mid range and is shooting a blistering .475%

  • It is funny because even Durant who has so many Dunks only takes it to the rim 26% of the time.

    Quote:
  • The San Antonio Spurs only have 20 Dunks on the year. There will be no Spurs selected in the All Time Dunker Draft.
  • The least flashy team in the league. This could also be because their top dunker (Duncan) is only going inside 37% of the time

  • Boston leads the league in And1s, this is a testament to the greatness of Leon Powe.
  • Powe and Tony Allen, who is leading the team with 17 and1's

Comparable to the Suns teams of the past of course.

What I take from this is that OKC would be a much better team if they started pennetrating.

  • Devin Harris' Usage rate has increased 5%, and his turnover percentage has dropped 5%.

  • Chris Paul is averaging 14.9 assists per48 minutes.

  • A:T on 82games is assists to bad pass turnover. So fumbling the ball out of bounds is not factored into this rating.

  • Devin Harris and Chris Paul lead the league in this rubric, with 8:1 ratios.

  • Steve Nash has a 2:1 Assist to turnover ratio. His 3.8 turnovers a game at first glance are not an increase over his D'Antoni numbers, but Terry Porter runs a slower paced offense than Mikey D. So his turnovers are higher when pace is factored in.

  • Joel Pryzbilla's rebounding ability is awesome.

Russell Westbrook and thier lack of quality outside shooting makes that a little difficult. As Russell and Jeff Green improve their shooting percentages, and number of inside shots should shoot up.

Well everybody knew that neither of the two can stroke it. Westbrook shot 35% from three in college which is like a NBA mid range jumper. Jeff Green also only shot 35%. Do you really expect those percentages to rise with their competition? I don't think so. They will always be bad shooters. They might get their shot down to where they can hit 37-39% from midrange on a consistant basis but they will never be three point shooters in any sense of the word. Kevin Durant is at best a midrange shooter. So if they can add a three point shooter like Curry in the draft and let Durant shot from midrange while Green and Westbrook attack the basket and dish out or finish hard then they will become a lot better of a team. They also need to finish a big man who can finish at the rim. I'm not sure how far Collison or Wilcox can stretch the defense but I think they are both servicable. But if they want to improve their winning percentage this season then they need to attack the rim. It's rediculous that they shoot that well inside but don't shoot inside as often as they should and thats a product of bad coaching.

Durant shoots nearly 50% from three. The improvement from Westbrook would come from his ability to key the offense. At the moment he is not a good facilitator, and the offense that OKC runs does not take advantage of his athletic gifts and the strengths of his game. Green is a great passer, and has an advanced knowledge of player movement from his time at Georgetown. As his confidence increases, he should be able to lighten the load on Russell, and improve the ball movement of The Thunder, which should increase their field goal percentage.

The ridiculous about this is Paul's number is actually down from last season which was 9.9:1.

Durant is the one of the top 3 point shooters in the league and is number 6 in the league with 47 dunks...

Curry is a volume shooter and would cause the Thunder to fall even lower in the defensive ladder (small lineup is a very bad idea).

What they need the most is a servicable big man, who can dominate the boards, score inside, and play some defense. By doing this it will increase paint scoring and put Green back to the perimeter (is playing PF lately) where he belongs.

Peja's continued injury woes are the main culprit for him drop. Steve Nash's ratio his disappointing, with fewer possessions he has to take better care of the ball.
