Tracking data shows which NBA players run the most miles per game

Since the 2013-14 season, the NBA has used player-tracking technology to collect all kinds of interesting data, including a player’s average speed, distance traveled, number of touches and more.

Second Spectrum is the NBA’s “official optical tracking provider,” and they’ve installed a player-tracking system in the catwalk of every NBA arena. Using multiple cameras, state-of-the-art machine learning and computer-vision techniques, the software identifies and locates every player and the ball 25 times per second. If something happens on the court, the player-tracking system catches it, and the data gets uploaded to NBA.com.

That’s how we know that five players — Mikal Bridges, Miles Bridges, Tyrese Haliburton, Tyrese Maxey and Scottie Barnes — ran more than 200 miles throughout the course of last season. And for the second-straight season, Fred VanVleet led all players in average distance traveled, running 2.82 miles per game. 

Which players are currently covering the most distance this season? And which players have the fastest and slowest average speed? Let’s take a look:

MOST MILES PER GAME

LaMelo Ball 2.8 miles per game
Fred VanVleet 2.77 miles per game
Terry Rozier 2.74 miles per game
Mikal Bridges 2.73 miles per game
Pascal Siakam 2.72 miles per game
Dejounte Murray 2.69 miles per game
Tyler Herro 2.69 miles per game
Scottie Barnes 2.68 miles per game
C.J. McCollum 2.64 miles per game
Zach LaVine 2.64 miles per game

MOST TOTAL MILES

Mikal Bridges 163.7 miles
Anthony Edwards 159.6 miles

Scottie Barnes 153 miles
Evan Mobley 151.5 miles
Jalen Brunson 150 miles
P.J. Washington 149.2 miles
