Three pointers are worth more than two pointers. This breath taking realization has been the focus of the NBA for the last few years. Since the 2011-2012 lockout teams are taking and making more three’s at about the same percentage made. The teams that really embrace this ethos and the advanced analytics that support it are taking more 3's, less long 2's and more free throws and apparently cashing in. The Rockets have two superstars but they also have a system. Rocketball has helped propel the team to great regular seasons.
I just listened to Bill Simmons’ new podcast “Bill Don’t Lie” and it’s very good. They are obviously taking a more advanced stats approach on topics which should have r/NBA salivating. Their analysis is great but they of course do some pretty serious speculating, it’s still Bill’s show.
