NBA Stats Data

This import uses an IDS data file supplied by the scoring system in the NBA. It is rarely used any more as their are better alternatives now available.

The key to this import is to create a 48 minute video for the game. This means editing the video down to only when the official game clock is running. The time stamps that used to create the instances are those found in the file marked by time on the game clock. The import then does the calculations to adjust the game to the video time.

There are a number of imports that rely on this, so it can be tedious editing the video and matching up the instances. It takes a little practice to learn where to lose and make up time in the editing of the file, so the data matches the video. Once this procedure is mastered, the data that comes from the import is extremely powerful.
