Shooting Hand Added to Player Season Finder

Posted by David Corby on May 16, 2014

Just a quick note that we've added Shooting Hand as a query option for our Player Season Finder.

We understand that any historical list like this contains some inaccuracies, so if you recognize any mistakes or omissions please let us know.

There are a few oddities like Tristan Thompson and DeAndre Jordan, who have switched shooting hands or who alternate depending on the type of shot attempt, that we can't fully account for. Though Jordan tends to dunk with his right hand, we consider him a left-hander.

Many thanks to former colleague Neil Paine and all of those whose research he referenced for compiling this list.

New League Shooting Table

Posted by David Corby on May 15, 2014

Just a note that we've added the same shooting table to our league season pages that we previously added to our player pages and our team pages. This is the easiest way to see team by team disparities in offensive approach. True to form, the Rockets take the fewest 2-point attempts in the 10-16 & 16+ foot range. In fact, league-wide those proportions have decreased every season except for one since 2000-01, the first season for which we have shot coordinates.

The easiest way to get to our league season pages is to click on (or mouseover) the 'seasons' link at the top of our site, then click on 'Summary', or a link for an individual season (e.g., '2013-14)

Maintenance Downtime (a few minutes), afternoon of May 14, 2014

Posted by admin on May 13, 2014

Due to a need to replace a faulty power supply the sites will be down for hopefully just a few minutes tomorrow afternoon as the power supply is being replace. The work is scheduled to occur sometime between 1 and 3 pm ET and should affect only our CFB, CBB and Olympics sites and this blog. Should a longer outage be necessary or any additional sites be affected, we will post any updates to our twitter accounts.

New Team and Opponent Statistics Tables

Posted by David Corby on May 12, 2014

Just a note that we've added several new features to make basic team and opponent statistics more accessible.

Most significantly, we've added year-by-year tables for team totals, team per-game, opponent totals, and opponent per-game statistics to our franchise section.

The easiest way to find these pages is to click to a team's season summary page or their Franchise Encyclopedia page and look for the "Year-by-year" links...

Once you've clicked to the new pages, notice the option to toggle between the totals (or per-game) statistics, and a summary of the team's ranking in each stat category, as well as a year-by-year summary of how each season compares to the season prior...

 

table_opts

 

We've made several other small changes, too. We've added per-game statistics and year/year %s to the team season summary pages, and added Top WS (Win Share) players to each season of our Franchise Encyclopedia, so that it's easy to scan through the years and identify, for example, the Jordan-era Bulls, or the Olajuwon Rockets.

Basketball-Reference.com is Ten Years Old

Posted by admin on May 10, 2014

Happy Birthday to us! It's been a good run and we'd be looking for that one last big veteran deal if we were an NBA player. Hopefully we have at least ten more years in us.

The vast majority of the credit for the site goes to Justin Kubatko, who you really should be following over at Statitudes.com. Thank you for all of your support through the years.

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...
