An excellent analysis of the players from both teams. The colors map out where shots were taken from, and how accurate they were.

Very cool, but in this case I would have used green for high percentage and red for low. I’m accustomed to thinking green=go=good and red=stop=bad.

I love this. Now, where did he get the data from? Who records the specific square foot of the court each shot is taken from and all the data on that shot? Or, maybe he just watched hours and hours of basketball games on tape?
