Picture sitting in a room for hours breaking down game film to prepare scouting reports for upcoming opponents. What type of offensive set is being run on each possession? A pick and roll, an isolation, a post-up, a dribble hand off? And which players are on the court and executing all of this action?
Picture doing this for every play...of every game...for every team!
Now picture getting the results of this work without having to put in the time to break down all of the footage. With the NBA's partnership with Synergy Sports Technology, scouting-level analytics are now available to view here on NBA.com/Stats.
How often does LeBron James post-up? How many points does James Harden score on isolation plays? Which teams score the most points in transition? Which teams are best at defending pick and roll? These play type statistics drill down to the details of each possession for a clearer understanding of the game.
