I've been telling Kevin Pelton to do this for more than a year now... but now that someone actually did it, and did it far bigger and better than I imagined possible, it's time to sit back and marvel at the basketball nerd's Stonehenge.
The stonemasons in this case are analyst Joe Treutlein and programmer Matt Nolan, the brilliant minds behind HoopData.com. Joe and Matt have put together a next-generation box score for every NBA game that tracks the normal stats, the slightly advanced stats, the advanced stats and the really advanced stats. If something, anything, happened during a basketball game, their boxscores now stand as the official record.
Take a peek: here's their box of Portland's win over Miami. As you can see: raw numbers, locational breakdown of shots, usage and other rates, true shooting percentages... literally everything you could possibly want to know about a game.
This information is available for every NBA game that's taken place this season. I recommend you get to browsing.
