I have added the option to select one or more playoff rounds to the Player Game Finder on Basketball-Reference.com. At first you won't see anything different, but if you click on Playoffs under Game Type a new section will appear that allows the user to select the Playoff Round:
You may select any subset of playoff rounds that you wish. If you want to select a single playoff round, just click on the red text for that round. The tooltips below the checkboxes allow you to select all first round series, all conference semifinals, or all conference finals.
Here are a few examples to get you started (all results since the 1986 playoffs):
- triple-doubles in the NBA Finals
- most points scored in a conference finals game
- most double-doubles in the NBA Finals
I hope this addition to the Player Game Finder — as well as Tuesday's addition — prove to be helpful as you go about your research. Enjoy!
