Yes, the NBA standings table is ordered by games back/winning percentage. I'm going to change this issue to an improvement to implement NBA tie-break ordering. It can get complicated. See the tie-break rules on this page: http://www.nba.com/statistics/playoff_picture.html

Hi - thats right. Just to make sure, that we are on the same page: Division leaders are always put into top4. Today, look at Boston. So besides the ordering on win% the division rank is also a factor.

I've done a reranking in my end now, so no hurry. In each conf. I've picked out the leaders of each division and put in a "top4" array. Then created an array of all 2nd ranked teams, and sorted it bt win% to get the best. I put the best 2nd ranked team, into the top4 array. Sortet the top4 array by win% - and there I have the correct top4. Afterwards I connect the rest of the teams, ordered by win% Hope maybe this can be usefull for you.
