Sparks First Round Statistics: Estimating player contributions to Sparks' first round games

Using David Spark's formula for estimating player contributions to team wins, you can see who was most responsible for the Los Angeles Sparks' wins game by game.

It's interesting to use plus/minus ratings as a complement to Sparks' formula -- typically the best players in a game will have both a large impact on the flow of the game (as indicated by plus/minus) while also being productive (as indicated by MEV%).
