An Analysis of NBA Spatio-Temporal Data

Abstract This project examines the utility of spatio-temporal tracking data from professional basketball games by fitting models predicting whether a player will make a shot. The first part of the project involved the exploration of the data, evaluated its issues, and generated features to use as co-variates in the models. The second part fit various classification models and evaluated their predictive performance. The paper concludes with a discussion of methods to improve the models and future work. iv
