Factorized Point Process Intensities: A Spatial Analysis of Professional Basketball

  title={Factorized Point Process Intensities: A Spatial Analysis of Professional Basketball},
  author={Andrew C. Miller and Luke Bornn and Ryan P. Adams and Kirk Goldsberry},
We develop a machine learning approach to represent and analyze the underlying spatial structure that governs shot selection among professional basketball players in the NBA. Typically, NBA players are discussed and compared in an heuristic, imprecise manner that relies on unmeasured intuitions about player behavior. This makes it difficult to draw comparisons between players and make accurate player specific predictions. Modeling shot attempt data as a point process, we create a low… CONTINUE READING
