From former NBA executive Ben Falk
Advanced NBA stats that are used across the basketball world, including by:
Why? Because Cleaning the Glass features stats that are:
Garbage time and heaves are filtered out by default. Possessions are counted directly from play-by-play.
Easier to use.
Others stats sites have tons of unintelligible numbers that make you work to learn what you want. Cleaning the Glass makes the interpretation as clear as possible with percentiles on every stat. 0 is the worst, 100 is best. Simple, right?
Data is summarized in ways that make it simpler to interpret. For example, breaking shot locations into the categories that matter: rim, short midrange, long midrange, corner three, non-corner three. Or position groupings that more closely fit the modern NBA: point, combo guard, wing, forward, big.
Hard to find elsewhere.
We estimate the context a play occurred in, so you can analyze how a team played in the half court vs. transition vs. off putbacks.
We estimate position played for all players, so you can view stats and filter and sort lineups based on when a player was playing a given position.
We break down the difference in how a team played with a player on vs. off the court so you can see, at a glance, what impact a player seems to be having on their team. We do this for even the most detailed stats, so if you want to know how a team's transition play changed when a player was in the game vs. not, it's simple.
Plus: tools to let you play armchair GM.
A cap calculator so you can see how a team's cap room changes under various scenarios.
An automated nightly email to keep you on top of the previous night's games, showing the most surprising performances.
And much, much more.
