NBA Power Rankings: Jan. 24th

Mark MyersAnalyst IJanuary 24, 2008

Power Rankings provide a calculation of relative team strength based on their performance to date.

The strongest team is given a strength of 0.0, and all remaining team strengths are relative to this standard.

The difference between two teams' scores indicates the expected average point differential in a series of neutral-court games played between the two teams.

The Playoff Index for each team gives the probability (expressed as a percentage) that the team will make the playoffs.

These probabilities are calculated by simulating the remainder of the season while taking into account team strength, home-court advantage, and historical trends.
