NBA Power Ratings

Filed under: Uncategorized — wwinston @ 7:55 am

It’s early yet but here are power ratings for the NBA based on games through Saturday November 6. Teams have played against schedules that are dissimilar in schedule strength so this should help you get a better idea of what is going on. Note that despite being winless, Houston is still a better than average team. The Heat are 16 points better than average on defense while the Wolves are 15 points worse than average on defense. The Hornets great start is primarily due to their defense.  The Thunder’s poor defense is the primary reason they are not as good so far as they were last season. Despite being unbeaten, the Hawks have not played very well.

Team Off Def Overall
Miami Heat 0.52 -15.79 16.31
Denver Nuggets 6.71 -4.58 11.30
New Orleans Hornets -1.29 -12.17 10.88
