A Couple Small CBB Additions

Posted by David Corby on May 6, 2014

If you've clicked around our college basketball site recently, you may have noticed that we've added player high schools and uniform numbers for all D-I players that have played during the last two seasons.

It's a general policy to list the last high school or prep school that a player was at before attending college, so please let us know if you find any mistakes.

DNP/Inactive Players on Boxscores

Posted by David Corby on May 6, 2014

Just a note that we've added some new info to the bottom of our boxscores, for the current season onward. Last week we added DNP and Inactive records to our player gamelogs.

We've added the same information to all of our 2013-14 boxscores. Players that didn't enter the game or dress get a DNP record, and player suspensions are noted when known.

Below the boxscore we note the players on the respective teams' inactive lists.

DNP/Inactive Records For Player Gamelogs

Posted by David Corby on May 1, 2014

Just a note that we've added DNP and Inactive records to our player gamelogs, beginning with the 2013-14 season.

If the player was active but didn't appear in the game, or didn't dress for the game, that's indicated with a 'Did Not Play' record. In cases when the player was active and suspended, the record will be 'Player Suspended'.

In all cases when the player is on the inactive list the record will be 'Inactive'.

Please let us know if you have any questions or catch any mistakes in the gamelogs.

Team Streak Finder overtime option

Posted by David Corby on April 25, 2014

Just a note that we added overtimes as a query option for our Team Streak Finder.

 

tstreak

 

 

New Orleans has the longest current win streak in regular-season overtime games with 6; they also have the longest streak of the last 10 years when they won 13 in a row between April 2, 2006 and February 6, 2008.

Improved Team Game Finders for the Playoffs

Posted by David Corby on April 17, 2014

Just in time for the playoffs we've added some new functionality to our Team Game Finder search tool. In particular, you can search for playoff games by team and opponent seed, and also series best-of format.

Search for all Game 1 opening-round 8-seed wins vs. top-seeded opponents in the modern playoff era, or find out how well 1-seeds have fared in decisive game 7s during that same period (26-4!)

We have seeds going back to the BAA playoffs, and also for the ABA. The NBA has employed several playoff formats in its history - including some complex ones with divisional seeds and re-seeding schemes, though it's been pretty stable since 1984 when it inaugurated the 16-team format. Nonetheless, if you know what you're searching for, we have all games and all seeds going back to 1947.

As always, you can get to our Team Game Finder by clicking on Play Index in the top left corner of any page on our site, and then Team Game Finder. Here's what's new...

Historical Standings Finder

Posted by David Corby on April 10, 2014

Just a note that we've unveiled a new search tool that lets you look up standings for the NBA, ABA, and BAA on any date in history, as well as team and opponent stats as of that date.

Recall those halcyon days when the 4-2 Sixers led the Atlantic Division, or marvel at the post-All Star collapses of the '04-05 season, when the 30-21 Cavaliers, 28-24 Magic, and 26-24 Lakers would all eventually miss the playoffs.

You can reach the search tool by going to www.basketball-reference.com/friv and clicking Historical Standings...

 

standings_link

 

Simply enter the date on which you want to know the standings, choose the league, and click Find Standings. Teams with asterisks were eventual playoff teams.

D-League Recalls and Assignments

Posted by David Corby on April 7, 2014

Just a note that we've added D-League assignments and recalls to our player pages and also to our team transactions pages.

Also, links from the text will take you to the affiliate's team page on our D-League site, where you'll find a transactions log that shows all players that have been recalled to and assigned from the NBA during the season.

We have player recalls and assignments going back to the 2005-06 season, when the affiliate system began.

WNBA and D-League Updates

Posted by David Corby on April 1, 2014

Just a note that we've updated our WNBA stats to include the 2013 season. Likewise, we've updated our D-League stats for the current year through yesterday's games, and will continue to update these daily through the rest of the season (which ends this month, yes!)

You've probably noticed that we maintain separate pages for a player's D-League stats. You can get to each by searching the player's name in our search box - we'll show you both results. We also link to a player's D-League page from their regular NBA page:

You can get to both our WNBA and D-League sites by mousing over the More [+] link at the top of our site...

BBR Feature Add: Practice Shot Charts

Posted by sean on April 1, 2014

Practice Shot Charts.

NBA.com has really upped the level of detail they've added, so we're trying to respond with the latest and greatest data we can get. We've recently come to an agreement with a number of franchises for access to their practice film and have begun breaking down scrimmage data.

Practice shot charts seem to us the next frontier in basketball analytics. This data will show you who's improving, who isn't, and who is working on new aspects of their game. It's especially useful for players without a lot of playing time.

Before we roll it out sidewide, we've prepared some sample charts.
