Using Regression Analysis To Detect Outliers In this activity, students will use the Illuminations <A HREF="ActivityDetail.aspx?ID=146" target=_blank>Line of Best Fit Activity</A> to plot the data from two teams during the 2004 -05 NBA season. In particular, students will look at the data for total points and minutes played by each of the starters on the Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Pistons. The data suggest that Laker Kobe Bryant is an outlier he scores more points per minutes than his teammates, which is part of why some sportswriters have described him as &quot;selfish.&quot; But through further investigation, students will also notice that Piston Ben Wallace is also an outlier, because he scores fewer points than his teammates.
