So, basketball reference has a new research tool called Play Index +. This was referenced in Alex's post from earlier. I wanted to create a separate post for all of the cool things found with this awesome tool. You can think us "statheads" suck all you want, but this tool is fantastic. They should win some sort of award for creating it. Here are just some of the cool things I found so far.
- Rose's 3pt percentage was closer to 35.5% last year.
- Final 2 minutes of 4th quarter and overtime last season. MVP
- Bulls starters, even without RIp, dominate. Check out #12 too. And not too upset Billups is injured.
What cool stuff can you find?
