Pro Basketball Power Ratings

Last updated: Friday, June 18, 2010 - thru games of June 17

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.  Enjoy!
