How to read NBA Standings

Records

After the team names on the NBA Standings, the first three columns are the most important to follow and they also dictate the order of the standings. Win and Loss are self-explanatory and Percent is the winning percentage of the team. The simple math formula for Percent is:

Win / Win + Loss

Ex. Boston Celtics 42-40
42 / 42+40 or 42 / 82 = .51 or 51%

The Records are updated Live on the NBA Standings after each game concludes. The GB is short for Games Back and it shows how far teams are behind the leader of the division. There are six divisions in the NBA, divided into three from both the Eastern and Western Conferences.

The Home and Away records in the NBA Standings are a great added feature and it shows how well a team plays as a visitor. It’s often been said in the NBA betting circles that if you want to find a great team, show me how well it produces on the road.

After the Home-Away records, the Conference record is available. Since the NBA Playoffs are split into two conferences before the NBA Finals, knowing how good a team has been versus the other 14 teams in each conference is huge.

The Last 10 column is clear-cut, just the record of the last 10 games for each team. The most resourceful feature is the Streaks, which shows you how many consecutive wins or losses a team currently has. Riding a team on a heater or a winning streak is never a bad idea nor is fading a club mired in a losing skid.
