Finding the best NBA games of the day

A mate of mine mentioned to me he has difficulties prioritising the NBA replays that he should watch first and wanted a way to do this without revealing the results of the games.

So I quickly put together some code that grabs the game and player results and summarises them in a way that allows you to decide which game interests you the most.

E.g., here [1] is the following metrics from yesterday's games:

- Game spread as percentage

- Comeback flag (down first three quarters but won)

- Overtime flag

- Number of players who double double

- Number of players who triple double

- Number of players who score > 25 points

- Number of players who score > 35 points


Does this interest anyone else or is my mate unique?

Interested for your feedback...

Friend of mine recently did something along the same lines, not sure if individual statistical milestones are included as well.
