I found Josh and Adam's work on streaks and how it pertains to basketball after looking for a rationale for the Sydney Kings substitutions. 
During the Finals I started tallying the Kings substitutions and noting the patterns of them and then went looking for a possible reason as to why they were the way they were (30:39).  
It was never a question posed to Coach Weaver in the press conferences. 
What I found was a great study into getting 'on fire' and finding 'the hot hand' which I think related quite closely.
