This is a simple data aggregation project. We are analyzing basic NBA basketball statistics, and we are looking to pull information from ESPN.com.
Here is how you get to the page:
- url: [url removed, login to view]
- for each individual team, click on the schedule tab
- under the results heading, click on one of the score outcomes (ie L 88-86)
- click on the box score tab, and all the prevalent data from that game should be listed
What we are looking to do:we want to automatically go to one of these pages and to the following
-there will be two teams listed. Find the difference in statistics between the bottom team and the top team (ie top minus bottom).
-we want to find the differences for the following total statistics (which are clearly marked on the page) in the following order:
-field goal percentage (percentage under fgm-a)
-three point percentage (percentage under 3pm-a)
-three pointers made (first number to the left of the dash under 3pm-a)
-free throw percentage (percentage under ftm-a)
-free throws made (first number to the left of the dash under ftm-a)
-offensive rebounds (OREB)
-defensive rebounds (DREB)
-two highest scorers (two maximum values for individual players under the pts label)
-Record (team's wins/total games played---> the number of wins and losses can be found at the top of the page
underneath each team's name by subtracting the right team's record from the left team's record
-We want all of this data aggregated into excel into a single row in the exact order of categories listed above.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We were told this would be a relatively simple operation, and we look forward to hearing your bids.
