INSIDER – Moneyball basketball via shot charts

The entire premise of the Houston Rockets and moneyball basketball is to shoot the three (preferably the corner 3) or get to the rim and to avoid taking any midrange shots.

The logic of this is …
Shot at Rim: 1.28 pts per shot
Shots from 3 to 23 feet: .76 pts per shot
Three point shots: 1.08 pts per shot
