 1086. High Five

 Given a list of scores of different students,
 return the average score of each student's top five scores in the order of each student's id.

 Each entry items[i] has items[i][0] the student's id, and items[i][1] the student's score.
 The average score is calculated using integer division.

 Example 1:

 Input: [[1,91],[1,92],[2,93],[2,97],[1,60],[2,77],[1,65],[1,87],[1,100],[2,100],[2,76]]
 Output: [[1,87],[2,88]]
     The average of the student with id = 1 is 87.
     The average of the student with id = 2 is 88.6. But with integer division their average converts to 88.


     1 <= items.length <= 1000
     items[i].length == 2
     The IDs of the students is between 1 to 1000
     The score of the students is between 1 to 100
     For each student, there are at least 5 scores


There may be many scores for a person in the input array, but all you want is the average score of the highest five scores for each different id.

So the method is to create a hashmap, the key is the id of each person, and the value is a priority queue to store each person’s top five scores.

For this question, you need to traverse the array and store the data; then traverse the hashmap keyset, calculate the average score of each person’s top five scores according to each key, and then output it as a two-dimensional array.

Time O(nlogn)
