The ESPN.com blog True Hoop, by Henry Abbott, had a major write-up the other day about the study of streak shooting in basketball (including a cite of the Hot Hand blog). The accompanying hot-hand study from Sportsmetricians is also worth reading.

Hi alan,

Nice blog; I appreciate all the links. I spent part of this weekend looking through NBA data for evidence of the hot hand, in part using a "correlation function" technique from physics. I had no luck, so my wife and I went to the gym and recorded data there with fairly interesting results.

I wrote up the results here if you're interested: http://gravityandlevity.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/finding-the-hot-and-cold-hand-at-a-local-gym/
