Shiny Contest Submission: 2018 NBA Finals Summary

#1

The 2018 NBA Finals was the fourth meeting between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. This app allows users to interactively explore all four games.

RStudio Cloud project: https://rstudio.cloud/project/191845
shinyapps: https://sdavis.shinyapps.io/nba_finals/

Filters in the app provide options to decide:

  • which game to explore
  • which plays to include/exclude (i.e. assists, blocks, made field goals, missed field goals, etc.)
  • which players to include/exclude

When reading through the play-by-play section, simply select a play(s) to highlight it in the visual.

Nice app @scottyd22 ! Appreciated the cleanliness of the GUI despite the high quantity of data that was represented. As a suggestion (for a non U.S nor NBA aficionado :smile:) I would have added the final score for each of the games.

Thanks for checking out my app, alessio! You make a good point about showing the final score. It can be found in the play-by-play section by scrolling all the way to the last entry, but making it more prominent (in addition to showing the score differential) is a good suggestion. I appreciate the feedback.

@scottyd22, I would expect an app about Syracuse Orange instead :wink: Good luck!

That was a close second :grinning: Thanks for checking it out!
