SWEEP!!! The Bucks eliminate the Heat in the 1st round in a series completely different than last year’s Eastern Conference Finals. Middleton stepped up and Giannis was Giannis, while Jimmy Butler and Bam terribly underperformed. The first graph shows the average points vs the eFG%. The other two graphs are the results of a k=8 hierarchical clustering.
I had a lot of fun poking around and will probably share some more stuff comparing this season’s series to the last.
