Hidden Within the Boxscore * Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs

Posted: 2019-03-05 07:53:54 (CT)    [ 32 views ]

Last night's game between Denver and San Antonio was the only game whereby a large differential in VMI existed.  Some of you know what that means, but for the rest, it means that Denver having just arrived from their home court, to play in San Antonio would naturally be shooting short on three point shots and needed to adjust their shooting.  

Many times a team does not adjust before the end of the game, so the average three point percent in this high minus VMI can be a disaster.  However, the Nuggets overcame that and shot 42.5% from three point range, only to lose by one point at game's end. 

However, hidden within the game's box score is that the Nuggets were 3 for 16 or 18.75% on three pointers in the first half prior to their valiant comeback effort in the second.  

We do not yet know the number of shots it takes for a player to adjust and, of course, each player is different and each game is different, so we may never reach that understanding.  

What we do know at this point is that the high minus VMI is identifying a struggle ahead of game time accurately.
