Recap Week 17 of the 2022-23 NBA Season


Power Rankings

These are the only NBA rankings based on strength of schedule. It’s math, so you can’t be mad! You beat a good team at home, you get points. You beat a good team on the road and you get more points. The most points possible are if you beat a contending team on their home court. The least amount of points are given when you lose to a bad team on your home court.
