I have 3-D matrixes of 2 variables, A and B. A contains measured values which are incomplete in space and time, and so has a large number of NaN values. B is a modelled value of A, with far fewer NaN values. I would like to have an equation in the form B = mA + c, where I can see what the predicted value of B would be for a given value of A. I have used the regress function, first converting each matrix to a column as so:
v = reshape(A,[],1);
onez = ones(length(v),1);
v_regress = horzcat(onez,v);
u = reshape(B,[],1);
[w,x,y,~,z] = regress(u,v_regress);
I have also made a scatter plot (using the scatter function) of my column versions of A and B (ie. v and u), and then applied a linear fit in the basic fitting toolbox. The resulting linear fit line looks wildly different (and much better) than plotting the line from the regress function. Additionally, the regress function gives a numerical R^2 value, and the fitting toolbox gives an R^2 value of NaN.
What does the linear fit option on basic fitting toolbox compute differently to the regress function?

They both produce the same results: R2 is the same for both. See e.g.:
A = randi([-13, 13], 20, 5);
B = randi([-130, 130], 20, 5);
IDXA_1 = randi(10, 7,1);
IDXA_2 = randi(5, 7,1);
for ii=1:numel(IDXA_1)
A(IDXA_1(ii), IDXA_2(ii)) = NaN; % A contains some NaNs
end
IDXB_1 = randi(10, 5,1);
IDXB_2 = randi(5, 5,1);
for ii=1:numel(IDXB_1)
B(IDXB_1(ii), IDXB_2(ii)) = NaN; % B contains some NaNs
end
v = reshape(A,[],1);
onez = ones(length(v),1);
v_regress = horzcat(onez,v);
u = reshape(B,[],1);
[w,x,y,~,z] = regress(u,v_regress);
R2=z(1);
disp(R2)
