The application of PCA and cluster analysis to the NBA match evaluateAuthor(s): Ronghui Pan
PCA is helpful to analysis the factors influencing the NBA match results. Cluster analysis can also, through classifying 30 NBA teams based on their own features and referring to the datum of the recent three seasons, make a scientific analysis of the match influences. Both PCA and cluster analysis can scientifically study factors effecting the NBA match, providing necessary datum for the team reform and adjustment. So PCA and cluster analysis can meet the new requirements that the traditional way of analyzing the team datum cannot meet, laying a solid foundation for the further study.
