Pro Basketball Power Ratings


Last updated: Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - final ratings

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!
