NBA Stats counts shots from five areas:
- the restricted area
- in the paint, but not in the restricted area
- 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 Currythe 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.
