Which Teams Shoot The Best From What Areas?

NBA Stats counts shots from five areas:

  • the restricted area
  • in the paint, but not in the restricted area
  • mid-range
  • corner 3-point
  • above the break 3-point

So which teams have the five highest field goal percentages from each of these areas?

See anything interesting?

  • The Miami Heat are the only team to have a top-five field goal percentage from every single area.  Think about that — they are basically as effective at shooting the basketball from any part of the court as any team in the league.
  • Holy crap can Steph Curry the Golden State Warriors shoot well from three-point range.  They shoot 45.8% from the corner three are, and nearly 40% from the above the break three area.  This is simply phenomenal given the volume of shots coming from three point range too.
  • San Antonio shoots well close to the basket: 64.2% from the restricted area, 41.2% from the paint (non-restricted area), and 43.7% from mid-range.
