  1. Curtis – was just turned on to your articles. Nice!

    At the start of the 2016/17 season the Warriors defense was extremely bad. While everyone agreed it would improve, most of our perceptions were anecdotal and based on individual (not team) performance.

    Looking for evidence-based criteria to evaluate in-game performance, I got interested in comparing the ORtg of opponent’s individual players for the game to their season averages. These numbers should give us a lens to look at the Dub’s defensive efficacity, evaluate their strategy, and focus on 48-minute performance instead of individual plays. I had help from Basketball-Reference; not only do they provide the data, they also suggested I also add Usage%.

    I post these results after each game on Adam Lauridsen’s “Fast Break” blog so all can use them *if they choose*. By reviewing my posting history, you may access results from earlier games this season. Your conclusions, however, will be your own.

    Hope you find them useful.
