Stats Analyst says Most Young NBA Teams Play Slow

New Orleans Pelicans

Adam Jacobs, an NBA enthusiast and analyst, recently looked at the pace vs. age relationship. The conclusion he found was that young losing teams actually had slower paces than the older teams. The only outlier in the young team, faster pace claim: Philadelphia 76ers. Some of these young teams move just as slow as the older ones. For example: New Orleans Pelicans’ pace is about the same as Miami Heat’s pace, which is the oldest team based on this information.
