Synergy Recap: Warriors vs. Bulls

Warning: This post contains advanced stats. Proceed with caution.

Just renewed my Synergy subscription so I'll be able to provide "real-time" game recaps this season for you guys. The idea is that we'll be able to see patterns emerging over the course of the season. Has our post offense improved? Are we still one of the best spot-up teams? Those are the some of the "advanced" questions that Synergy can be used to answer.

If you haven't already, make sure to read my Advanced Stats Primer to get up to speed on PPP, Synergy, and other terminology you may not be familiar with.

Offense

Our offensive efficiency was good overall at 0.98 PPP. The PNR play was almost equally effective whether the ball handler or big took the shot. As usual, the team excelled in transition. Spot-up shooting was a weak spot, though.

Defense

We held Chicago to 0.81 PPP overall, which is very good. We effectively stopped them on almost every play type, save for POST plays (no surprise there, really).
