Description

Stephen Curry is a player in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and he plays as a point guard for the Golden State Warriors. The overall purpose of this project is to predict, based on a number of factors (independent variables) from the 2015-2016 season, the amount of points Stephen Curry will score in any given game. The independent variables (regressors) chosen that could have an effect on the number of points scored are minutes played in a specific game, field goal percentage, three point percentage, free throw percentage, rebounds, assists, blocks, steals, fouls, and turnovers. The data was obtained from the ESPN website. The statistical software package, SPSS, was used to analyze the data and obtain a good prediction model.
