Question about the NBA standings?
In the NBA Standings... you know... where they have the columns: W, L, PCT, GB, CONF, DIV, HOME, ROAD, L 10, STREAK...
Is anyone able to explain sufficiently what each of these mean, and what the figures under each title represent? I don't quite understand what those numbers mean either. (Well... except W and L... that one is obvious for me)

Much of that stuff is used as tie breakers
