Clarification/Change of the Day
With the log
jam in the East, I want to tighten up the conference
tiebreaker rules. I find this detail legal-ese annoying,
but since it may determine who gets into the playoffs, I
want it to be air-tight.
current Article 6.4 from the Bylaws on this subject...
6.4. Teams are ranked in each conference (1
through 8) by their number of victories during the
regular season. In the case of a tie (an equal number
of victories), the tiebreakers are: 1) head-to-head
competition, 2) team-score's in head-to-head
competition, 3) total team-score during the entire
regular season, 4) a flip of the coin."
I want to
clarify the tiebreaker and also make the coin flip less
likely. Therefore, here's the new (improved?) Article
6.4. Teams are ranked in each conference by
their winning percentage during the regular season.
If two or more teams are tied (having the same
winning percentage), then the tiebreakers are:
two teams are tied, then the tiebreakers are:
1) better record in head-to-head games, 2)
higher team-score in head-to-head games, 3)
higher winning percentage in conference
games, 4) higher average team-score in
conference games, 5) higher average
team-score in all games, and 6) a flip of the
more than two teams are tied, then the
tiebreakers are: 1) best winning percentage
in games among all teams tied, 2) highest
average team-score among all teams tied, 3)
highest winning percentage in conference
games, 4) highest average team-score in
conference games, 5) hightest average
team-score in all games, and 6) a flop of the

Rules Clarification of the Day
Also, I want
to clarify the rule about bad dates in your lineup.
Here's Article 5.10...
If a lineup mistakenly includes a date in which a
player does not actually have an NBA game, then this
date is replaced with the NBA player's lowest score
of the remaining games during the game-week. If both
dates are bad, then the two lowest scoring dates are
No change to this rule,
but just to clarify... if one of your guys lowest scores
for the week is a zero, then you get a zero score and the
6th man does not kick in. Hey, you screwed up, so you
shouldn't be rewared for putting in a bad lineup. Get it?
