I’ve been wondering if there is any easy way to view points per game started? I’ve seen analysis recently separating P/G vs P/GS and was looking for a way to do this myself for all players. I’m wondering if there an easy/readily available way to do this or if would require a more manual approach (spreadsheet manipulation or player-by-player drill down). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
It’s not easy, in large part because FG doesn’t provide a starter vs sub split. You can get those data from BBRef, but you either need to scrape their site or possibly use Stathead (subscription required) to get data for every player. Or alternatively compile player-game-level data from Savant and then aggregate once you’ve secured all of those data.
Fortunately, for most players, it’s not going to matter much.
