Star Golden State Warriors Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant are great shooters but they are not streak shooters. This conclusion is based on an empirical analysis of field goal and free throw data from the 82 regular season and 17 post season games played by the Warriors in 2016-2017.Our analysis is inspired by the iconic 1985 hot-hand study by Thomas Gilovitch, Robert Vallone and Amos Tversky, but uses a permutation test to automatically account for Josh Miller and Adam Sanjurjo’s recent small sample correction. In this study we show how long standing problems can be reexamined using nonpara-metric statistics to avoid faulty hypothesis tests due to misspecified distributions.
