    • There are factual errors in the database. For example, "3pm-a" attribute is constant in the database, why it shouldn't. Some records contain wrong values, like the record for Stephen Curry (PlayerId=31) in a game of Golden State Warriors against Dallas (GameId=11). Action table in the database says that he scored 27 points, but the results at http://www.nba.com/games/20140331/MEMDEN/gameinfo.html says he scored 23 points. The difference is either caused by missalignment of lines during data preprocessing or by a late fix of the errors at nba.com. Unfortunatelly, this is not the only row with errors. Another error is in the line with James Harden (PlayerId=55) in GameID=12. Further differences are possible.
