NBA Standings By Road Record
The NBA season has reached its halfway point and the championship landscape has become clear. The top three seeds in each conference are in a tier of their own, yet there is no obvious favorite. It is a tremendous time to be an NBA fan.
As we attempt to peer into our crystal ball and predict who will emerge victorious at the end of the playoffs, learning how a team performs on the road is a useful tool. Road performance is reflective of how teams play under pressure and how they can battle through tough circumstance as they spend night after night in unfamiliar territory. Great teams find ways to win under less-than-ideal circumstances, especially on the road. Bad teams, well, don't.
Here's how the NBA standings would shake out if they were determined by road record and road record alone.
