Pro Basketball Power Ratings

Last updated: Monday, June 3, 2019 - thru games of June 2 Welcome to my NBA power ratings! I will be updating this page every Monday and Friday. To determine the approximate point spread for a game, simply take the difference between the power ratings of the two teams in question and add 4 points for the home team. These ratings are based on several factors, including won-lost record, schedule strength, and margin of victory in games. The most recent games are given slightly more weight than those played earlier in the season. Enjoy! LR = Ranking in Last Ratings
