Great resource...


For example,

We can see how Wade and Lebron do with each other on the court vs. off the court. Both guys are pretty consistent across the board. In the playoffs, Lebron is shooting 47% overall, 47% with D Wade on the court and 47% when D Wade is on the bench. For D Wade, he's shooting 48% overall, 48% when Lebron is on the court and 47% when Lebron is on the bench. You can also see +/- numbers. Plus, they have shot location numbers for when D Wade or Lebron are on the bench vs. when they're on the court.

Another example,
http://www.nba.com/statscube/player.html#LeBron-James|2544;season=p;splitType=clutch;splitValue=al l

We can see Lebron's #'s in the clutch in the playoffs. For example, Lebron's TS% actually goes down in the clutch (from 57.5% to 55.8%) while his Usage goes up (30.8% to 43.1%). In addition, we can see shot location data for in the clutch such as Lebron is shooting 46% from mid-range in the clutch (5-11) vs. 36% overall. Obviously, thats a pretty small sample size though.

Other features include looking at how a player does vs. a team or team vs. team. There's also a lineup comparison.

For example, the starting lineups of the Mavs and Heat:

As you can see, the starting lineup of the Mavs really struggles offensively, scoring only 79.0 points per 48 minutes.

Anyways, this is a really cool resource that can be used in many different ways. It's general awesomeness can not be understated.

I agree about it being a great resource and it's long overdue from the NBA.

That's an awesome feature - props to NBA.com. The interface is user friendly too, that's going to garner a lot of interest (and subsequently probably some more action in this forum) over the next year. Doesn't look like they kept data before this season, but that's what basketball-ref, hoopdata, 82 games, etc. are for.

Liking it.

It's great, I really like that statscube shows the difference in % from 22 foot 3PA and 23'9" 3PA.
