## Consistency of Utah Jazz players

I have seen a few comments talking about consistency of certain players, and thought I'd try to quantify consistency to see how our players compare against each other.

Method:

* Chart Points against FGA for all games this season per player
* Find the line of best fit
* Find the r-squared value for the data (0 is no fit or inconsistent, 1 is best fit or perfectly consistent)

I have done line of best fit with no defined intercepts, and also with (0,0) intercept for comparison.

Data:

y = points
x = field goal attempts

No intercept:

 Name Equation R2 Murph y = 1.2705x - 1.1066 0.7314 Marv y = 1.6109x - 3.2361 0.7259 Jeremy y = 1.7169x - 0.0747 0.7217 Enes y = 1.4196x - 0.5335 0.6897 Alec Burks y = 1.32x - 1.0292 0.6671 JTins y = 1.047x - 0.425 0.6237 Al y = 1.3734x - 3.8086 0.6222 Sap y = 1.265x + 0.5353 0.5646 DFav y = 1.077x + 1.5147 0.5641 DMC y = 1.2512x + 0.0509 0.525 Mo y = 1.093x + 0.2883 0.5126 Randy y = 1.4952x - 3.0331 0.47 G y = 1.0636x + 2.6952 0.437 Earl y = 0.6504x + 0.2966 0.2795

0,0 intercept:

 Name Equation R2 Jeremy y = 1.696x 0.7214 Enes y = 1.3474x 0.6873 Marv y = 1.2051x 0.6725 Alec Burks y = 1.1911x 0.6588 Murph y = 0.9211x 0.6292 JTins y = 0.9792x 0.6198 Al y = 1.1418x 0.6035 Sap y = 1.3077x 0.5639 DFav y = 1.249x 0.547 DMC y = 1.2591x 0.5249 Mo y = 1.1154x 0.5123 Randy y = 1.1966x 0.4495 G y = 1.2934x 0.4145 Earl y = 0.7321x 0.2731
