Shooting Tables on Team Pages

Posted by David Corby on March 24, 2014

Last month we introduced shooting tables on the player pages. Just a note that we added these to our team pages last week, as well.

Here you can admire all of the Clippers that know what to do with the ball when they're near the basket...

Search for And-1s, Opportunities and Conversions

Posted by David Corby on March 24, 2014

Just a note that we've added searches for And-1s to our Play by Play Event Finder, and we've distinguished And-1 Opportunities from And-1s that are actually converted. Previously, we had only published And-1 Opportunities on our player page Play-by-Play tables.

As a reminder, you can find our Event Finder search tool by clicking on Play Index in the top left of our site, then Play Index+, then Event Finder.

In case you don't have time to check, through yesterday's games Blake Griffin is leading the NBA with 60 And-1 Opportunities while Kevin Durant is leading with 49 converted And-1s.

We've also re-formatted our conference standings page so that it's easier to follow. Each conference has its own sortable table, along with SOS, SRS, and a summary of AP rankings for all of the conference members, so you can see where every school stands as we head into conference tourney play...

For instance, in 1985, Rickey Henderson was driven in 56 times by Don Mattingly, 31 times by Dave Winfield and 24 times by himself.

Baseball Team Executives on Team/Year Pages

Posted by sean on March 4, 2014

If you look at a pre-2013 team season (back to about 1950) we now list GM, Farm Directors and Scouting Directors as applicable. This appears just under the team name in the top box, near where the manager can be found.
