Top Playoff Scorers by TS%
This scatterplot tells us a few things: Kevin Durant is
amazing, Kawhi is also amazing, and Donovan Mitchell is
struggling as Utah's only offensive threat. Other notable
standouts: Steph Curry, James Harden, and D'Angelo Russell.
It's important to note that I used all playoff players to calculate the mean TS%.
I changed the parameters slightly, increasing the limits to include the
top 30 scorers. Then, I organized the scorers by their Z-scores. This revealed
a few things: Montrezl Harrell has been monstrous as a medium-volume high-efficiency
scorer for the Clippers. Eric Gordon's efficiency also stands out.
Like in the previous chart, the standard deviation and mean were based on
all the players in the playoffs.
Plans: I want to recreate both of these charts at multiple points throughout next regular season.
