# 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)

Relevance

w: wins,

l: loses...

pct: winning percentage...take home many games uve won divide by ur loses...like is ur 10 and 10 ur winning % is 500....

GB: games behind..how many games u are behind the 1st place ranking....

CONF: your confrence record...the recrod u have agasint team in ur confrence...i.e.(southwestern, northeastern)

DIV: ur record agasint ur division...i.e. (eastern or western), HOME: your home record...

L.10: ur record in the last 10 games ur team has played...

STREAK: how many gamesi n a row uve won or lost
