NBA team defense visualizations

Select a team from the drop down below to see that team’s defense visualized for the 2013-2014 season. There’s nothing fancy going on with these visualizations–just raw, unadjusted comparison to the average. Blue squares indicate that the team defended that location better than league average, while red squares indicate that the team defended that location worse than league average. The numbers give FG% from that location for the opposing team. I talked about these visualizations previously here and here, and explained how I make them here.

I will have adjusted defensive impact for all players in the NBA soon-ish. It’s actually ready to go but I got gun-shy and decided I needed to test alternate model specifications. It might be a couple weeks before I get them all up, but it will be a more reliable product.
