As you known, I put up stats for every game in the 2011 playoffs.
This allows me do some fun things.
I can take the top 6 players by minutes for each team and each series. Then I can work out:
- The Classic Wins Produced stats (explained here)
- My own opponent adjusted Wins Produced Stats (explained here) to adjust for opponent production.
- My own do it Yourself Offensive Point Margin Stat Combined Margin Combined Point Margin (explained here) to adjust for opponent point differential.
I can work them out per 48 minutes then convert Combined Pint Margin per 48 to wins ( CPM48/15.5 +.100 if you’re curious) average all three numbers for a combined barometer statistic (calling it combined wins per 48).
For fun, I can convert the result to Point Margin per 48 ((CWP48 -.100)*15.5 again if you’re curious).
The result by series looks like so:
Dwade? Still the best player in the Finals. Chandler? Finals MVP.
Lebron & Kidd? below average
The Miami bigs really sunk the Heat though. It was the big two and a half indeed for Miami but the cast was Wade,Chalmers, Lebron not Lebron,Wade and Bosh.
For the Playoffs it looks like so:
Miami really did waste and epic Wade Finals (good job by Bosh,Anthony and Haslem). Terry (DAL-LAL), Ray(BOS-NYK) and Dirk(DAL-LAL) top the list. Russell Westbrook, Bill Walker, Marvin Williams and DeShawn Stevenson bottom it out.
Was it good for you? 🙂
