NBA Shot Location Visualization Update

We’ve been playing with a few different ideas to allow for users to specify the data set to visualize; in the meantime I threw together a version that allows for each quarter to be shown. The data is hard coded right now, not optimal but easy and fast.

The controls are the same as before (click for reminder) but by pressing 1,2,3 or 4 you can cycle quarter by quarter. There are some obviously interesting contrasts between Q1 and Q4. I’ll be looking to extend this to point differentials as well. I’d imagine the shot selection drastically changes when a team is down 1 and down 15.
