Data Mining with STATISTICA

Building a Linear Model in STATISTICA for NBA Team Basketball Data

10th of December, 2013

I have lost my voice so I am not going to produce a video this time around.  I would like to throw out a challenge problem.  I will discuss the results in a blog post next weekend.

I collected some team statistics for the current NBA basketball season from the ESPN website that was current on December 4th.  I paired up the winning percentage  for the games up to that same day.  I propose that you create a linear model predicting the winning percentage with the given statistics as inputs.

Here is the data file in csv format:

NBA Team Statistics from ESPN up to 12-4-2013

Post your model or questions in the comments section below.

Have some fun and be on the watch for a new video next week demonstrating how I used STATISTICA to create the linear model.
