This small multiple set show the total Points Scored v Projected Total for NBA games 1995-2014.
Each dot is a game. The horizontal position is determined by the Vegas-projected total number of points to be scored in that game and the vertical position of our game-dot determined by the actual total number of points scored in that game.
The highest projected total was 246 and the highest actual total was 318 when the Suns beat the Nets 161-157 o December 7, 2006.
These scatter plots show the combined fantasy points of the starting guards v combined fantasy points of the starting forward for each NBA player-game in 2014: that is, each dot represents player performance in a single game.
