NBA Power Ranking by PVOA


Below is my updated PVOA, or "point value over average" NBA Power Ranking.

PVOA purports to show how a team is performing independent of wins and losses by comparing their points scored and points allowed per possession in each of their games to their opponents points scored and points allowed per possession averages.

The Power Ranking is ordered according to each team's combined offensive and defensive PVOA per game average.

1. Boston...... +17.44 (---)
2. Toronto...... +10.69 (up 4)
3. LA Lakers...... +9.05 (down 1)
4. San Antonio...... +8.93 (up 7)
5. Detroit...... +8.54 (---)
6. Houston...... +8.43 (down 3)
7. New Orleans...... +6.85 (up 1)
8. Portland...... +4.82 (up 11)
9. Denver...... +2.73 (up 3)
10. Orlando...... +4.32 (down 1)
11. Phoenix...... +2.35 (up 2)
12. Dallas...... +1.78 (down 5)
13. Atlanta...... +1.38 (down 9)
14. Utah...... +1.42 (up 1)
15. Cleveland...... -0.12 (up 5)
16. LA Clippers...... -1.50 (down 6)
17. Washington...... -2.40 (down 3)
18. Miami...... -3.16 (up 7)

28. Milwaukee...... -7.65 (down 7)
29. Chicago...... -8.46 (down 6)
30. Minnesota...... -10.26 (down 4)

Team playing worse than you feared: Your Milwaukee Bucks
Team playing as well as advertised: Boston Celtics

How do you factor in quality minutes vrs. garbage time? The bucks defense has improved and the offense is just a few bounce passes away from hitting a productive stride. forget the numbers and keep the faith

trigorin - Agreed that it isn't all about stats.

But...

Ty - This PVOA ranking is the best one yet. Very cool. Love the player efficency stats from the previous games, too. Keep up the good work, and the faith.

I feel like I've been keeping the faith for 10 years. Maybe the Bucks will improve this season, but the effort still seems straight out of the Terry Stotts years.

Something funny Bill Simmons over at espn.com wrote:

"Reason No. 12,350 why I love the NBA: Charlie Bell continuing to hold a grudge that the Bucks waited so long to offer him a fair contract before eventually matching Miami's $18 million offer. I was a key member of our 28-win team last season. I don't really have a position, and I don't do anything all that well … and that's how you treat me??? What a league. Let's add that to the "Where Amazing Happens" campaign, as well: "Where Charlie Bell Complaining About An $18 Million Contract Happens.""
