According to NBA.com during the 2018-19 season, here is how many dribbles were taken after the player catches the ball prior to shooting:

0 Dribbles – 44.1% of shots

1 Dribble – 13.1% of shots

2 Dribbles – 12.1% of shots

Nearly 70% of their shots come with two or fewer dribbles.

And….

Here are some additional analytics from NBA.com for the 2018-19 season.

This is how many points they scored per shot based on the number of dribbles they took.

0 Dribbles – 1.16 Points Per Shot

1 Dribble – 1.02 Points Per Shot

2 Dribbles – .95 Points Per Shot

3-6 Dribbles -.94 Points Per Shot

7+ Dribbles – .93 Points Per Shot

Think about that…..

Not only do shots with fewer dribbles (about 2 or less) tend to happen often during games, they are also more effective!
