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  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...
