Comparing Shot Charts (Updated 4/26/13)

The title image is the Pistons shot chart for the season via stats.nba.com. Sadly, as you can see, there's only one area where the Pistons shot above 40%, and that was in the paint. You can also see that we are the worst from the right side of the floor and right around the free throw line. But how does this compare to the league. There are 15 areas, and here's how I'll be referring to them (Hover over the "Area *" to see which section it's referring to).

Honestly, I think the stat that concerns me the most is our key play. We're 1st in the East in makes and attempts, 2nd in the League in makes and attempts, but 24th in FG%? Mind you, we did shoot better from there than we did the previous year. We actually shot better from half of the areas (Mid court prayers not included), improving the most in straight away 3's. We improved in 3 of the 5 area's pertaining to 3 pointers.

Well, again, here's data, you analyze it. Thankfully I didn't have to write a program for this one, just used Excel. I'm thinking of updating this sometime soon to show who the best and worst Pistons players were in each area.

Update - 4/26/2013

Here are the Pistons shooting numbers and percentages by each of the 15 areas order by shooting percentage largest to smallest. If a player isn't included, it's because they didn't attempt a shot from that area. I would think that ideally you'd want those who shoot the highest percentage in that area to also have at least the highest percentage of shots attempted in that area (with the exception of players who were 1/1 or 2/3 in that area, as that's a small sample size). As you'll see below, that's unfortunately not always the case. What team would be a good team to compare us to in order to see how far we are from shooting our way into the playoffs? I don't suspect the top teams like the Heat or Thunder would be good as we don't have that talent level. But we're better than the Bucks (at least we beat them 3-1 this season) and not sure if they'd be good to compare to since they made the playoffs with a sub .500 record.
