NBA INSIDER TOM HABERSTROH: THE 3-POINT SHOT ISN’T THE BE-ALL AND END-ALL

Tom Haberstroh’s Column Available NOW on NBCSports.com/Haberstroh and MyTeams app
Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey Speaks With Haberstroh in New Episode of The Tom Haberstroh Show Podcast
STAMFORD, Conn. – December 7, 2018 – NBC Sports National NBA Insider Tom Haberstroh examines comments made last week by Gregg Popovich about the 3-point shot in the NBA in this week’s edition of his weekly column, available now on NBCSports.com/Haberstroh. Haberstroh takes a close look at every NBA game played this season, all 342, and breaks down the numbers to see which stats aligned with the win column most often. Haberstroh’s new column debuts each week exclusively on NBCSports.com/Haberstroh and on the MyTeams by NBC Sports app.
Highlights from this week’s column include:
- “The team that won the defensive rebound battle is the next-most likely to win, going 225-71 (.760) this season”
- “Even though teams are launching the deep ball more than ever, knocking down more 3s than your opponent doesn’t guarantee victory.”
- “Business in the NBA is booming and it’s hard to imagine a global obsession over Steph Curry without the advent of the 3-point line.”
Released Tuesday, NBC Sports newest podcast The Tom Haberstroh Show, features a candid interview Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey. In the podcast Morey discusses the Rockets’ rough start, the failed free-agent signing of Carmelo Anthony and Michael Jordan as the GOAT.
In October it was announced that Haberstroh signed an exclusive deal with NBC Sports Regional Networks as the National NBA Insider. In addition to a weekly column and biweekly podcast, he’ll make regular appearances on all NBC Sports Regional Networks for a weekly TV hit and The Big Number, a weekly analytics-based video series.
