Were the Warriors just unlucky? Their opponents, the Cleveland Cavaliers, were not a particularly good defensive team during the regular season, either overall or against perimeter shooters, although they may be better with Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova and Tristan Thompson getting more minutes because of injuries. The Cavs forced the Warriors into some bad possessions, but the Dubs also missed on some good looks, shooting just 2-for-11 on corner threes.But there’s also the old adage: Live by the three, die by the three. If your shooters are going to get crazy hot on some nights, isn’t it inevitable that they’ll shoot a bunch of bricks on another, rendering a team’s offense more inconsistent and making it more upset-prone?Let’s look at some data from the 2014-15 regular season. In the chart below, I’ve sorted teams by the percentage of their field goals that were taken from 3-point range. Then I’ve looked at their game-by-game scoring, calculating their scoring range (as I’ll describe it throughout this article) as the span including the middle 80 percent of their games (that is, throwing out their top 10 percent and bottom 10 percent of performances).The Warriors, for instance, averaged 110 points per game in the regular season, while their scoring range ran from 98 points (at the 10th percentile) to 126 points (at the 90th percentile), a 28-point difference. That seems like a wide range … but it’s perfectly normal. The average NBA team this season had a 27-point scoring range. The average range since 1979-80 (when the 3-point shot was introduced) is 28 points.The Warriors weren’t the league’s most three-happy team, however. They were just seventh — behind the Houston Rockets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers and Portland Trail Blazers. So maybe the Dubs were pretty steady, but were those other teams inconsistent?The Cavaliers were inconsistent: Their scoring range spanned 33 points, tied for the second-highest total in the league after Oklahoma City.2Like the Thunder, who dealt with injuries to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, the Cavs went through numerous lineup changes and new “looks” over the course of the regular season. So that may reflect personnel changes more than inconsistency per se. But Houston, which took 39 percent of its attempts from long range (easily an NBA record), had a scoring range of just 25 points, below the NBA average. The three-happy Atlanta Hawks had a scoring range of just 24 points.What’s going on here? Are teams that shoot a lot of threes actually more consistent than others? (Maybe they’re more resilient when facing different types of defenses or benefit from having better floor spacing?)Actually, it’s mostly just because this data is pretty noisy. I ran a regression on all NBA teams since 1979-80 to predict their scoring range based on (i) the percentage of their field goal attempts that came from behind the arc and (ii) their per-game scoring average. Both variables have a positive and highly statistically significant relationship with a team’s scoring range. Teams that score more points have a wider scoring range, and, once you control for that, teams that shoot more threes do also.But statistical significance is not the same thing as practical significance. In the context of an actual basketball team, this result will make very little difference.Suppose, for instance, that a team scores 100 points per game and that 40 percent of its field-goal attempts are 3-pointers — higher, even, than this year’s record-setting Rockets. Its scoring range, according to the regression analysis, projects to be 29.7 points.What about a team that scores 100 points but does so with only 10 percent of its shots being threes? No team has shot such a low percentage of 3-pointers since the 1999-2000 Philadelphia 76ers, but we’ll run the numbers just for fun. That team, according to the regression, would have a scoring range of 28.0 points. So it’s more consistent, but only barely so; its scoring range is only 6 percent narrower. This just really doesn’t matter much.What matters a lot more, of course, is how effective a team is at scoring overall. The Oklahoma City Thunder, as I mentioned, had the most inconsistent offense in the regular season. But their 10th percentile score, 88 points, was still better than two-thirds of the league because they had a high per game scoring average.And Golden State’s 10th percentile score, 98 points, was better than what almost a third of NBA teams scored on average per game. The Warriors will have better shooting nights than they did Sunday, but their bad nights aren’t indicative of a fundamental problem — they’re just bad nights.CORRECTION (June 9, 11:45 a.m.): An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that if the Golden State Warriors had made 3-pointers at their regular-season accuracy rate, they would have won Sunday’s NBA Finals game 117-95. They would have won 111-95. “You’ll shoot your eye out,” I kept thinking while watching Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday. The Warriors hoisted 35 3-point attempts and made only eight of them en route to scoring just 93 points. It was a maddening, sloppy game full of what-ifs. So … what if the Warriors had sunk threes at their normal accuracy rate?1The Warriors shot .398 on 3-pointers during the regular season, which would equate to making 14 of 35 shots. They would have won 111-95.

Citation: Best of Last Week – A way to measure variations in the speed of light, a slower universe and plucking hair (2015, April 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-04-week-variations-slower-universe-plucking.html (Phys.org)—It was a big week for physics. First, a trio of researchers proposed a method to measure variations in the speed of light—in alternative theories of cosmology where it has been theorized that time and space can vary. Also, another team showed that the “quantum freezing phenomenon” is universal—this describes conditions in which quantum correlations can be “frozen” in a constant state and remain that way in the presence of noise. Meanwhile another team suggested that “unparticles” may provide a new path to superconductivity—the hypothetical form of matter, the researchers suggest, could play a key role in mediating superconductivity. Explore further Absence of gravitational-wave signal extends limit on knowable universe © 2015 Phys.org Also, a team of astrophysicists working at the DOE’s Fermilab suggested that the absence of a gravitational-wave signal extends the limit on the knowable universe—they are working with equipment capable of sensing gravitational waves at frequencies in the range of a million cycles per second. Also, work by two different teams suggested that the acceleration of the expansion of the universe might not be quite as fast as theorists have thought—new data has come to light indicating that supernovae used to measure distances in the universe are more diverse than thought.In other news, researchers at Stanford University have developed an ultra-fast charging aluminum battery that offers a safe alternative to conventional batteries—they say it is less expensive, too. Meanwhile another team at Virginia Tech announced a new discovery that may be a breakthrough for hydrogen cars—a new way to create fuel cells using a biological method. A team of bio-researchers discovered a master protein that enhances learning and memory—similar, they say, to other proteins that allow for enhanced physical abilities. And another team has built a fully functional computer that is about the size of a grain of rice, which portends a time in the near future when computers may be embedded in virtually everything around us.And finally, for those people worried about losing their hair as they age, a team of researchers is plucking hair to grow hair—they found that plucking hair in a certain pattern on mice induced new growth in the surrounding area—evidence of environmental circumstances causing the body to react in unpredictable ways.
