Who’s Best in the 4th Quarter?

Filed under: Uncategorized — wwinston @ 1:52 pm

Who are the NBA’s top performing players in the 4th quarter? To answer this question we have developed 4th quarter Adjusted +/- ratings. These ratings look at how a player helped his team in the 4th quarter, after adjusting for who he played with and against. For example, after adjusting for who Frye played with and against we find he has made the Suns 35 points better (per 48 minutes) than an average NBA player. Note the Pistons are amazing in the 4th quarter. They have 4 of the league’s best 4th quarter players.

  1. Can you adjust these to factor out blowouts and just account for close games?

    Where are Roy, Duncan, T Parker, KG, Bosh and
    B Gordon?

  6. Not to be a spelling stickler in a site about numbers, but it’s “Villanueva” not “Villenueva” and “Jerebko” not “Jeretko”

  7. Where’s Brandon Roy?

  8. These are seriously piece of shit stats that you came up with, because Lebron James killed the Sixers in the 4th quarter, Killed Boston in the 4th quarter, also killed Chicago in the 4th and even killed Dallas the first 2 games in the 4th! So just cuz he had 3 bad games in the 4th do not mean that you have to put players that didn’t do shit for their teams on top of James! That is just ignorant and tells that you just personally do not like L. James. He’s obviously in the top 3 in the 4th this year in the Playoffs like it or not sir…
