I have been taking a look at the stats released by the NBA using their new SportVu cameras, including Drives to the basket, Pull Up shots and Catch and Shoot jumpers. All of them have given some interesting insights into the game. This time I am looking at their rebounding stats.
- A slight negative correlation for the percent of team rebounds contested and the percentage of opportunities grabbed.
- A small positive correlation with Contested Percentages and total rebound %
- No correlation with defensive rebounds and contested rebounds.
- A significant (statistically and practically) correlation between number of contested rebounds per game and offensive rebounding percentage and correlation between the percent of team rebounds contested and team offensive rebound percentage. The R2 for all 30 teams being .29.
