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...

re: NBA Hot Shots

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