(-) Tie breaker not needed (better overall winning percentage)
(1) Division leader wins tie from team not leading a division
(2) Head-to-head won-lost percentage
(3) Conference won-lost percentage
(4) W-L Percentage vs. Playoff teams, own conference
(5) W-L Percentage vs. Playoff teams, other conference
(6) Net Points, all games


...and yet they're reporting the Bucks haven't clinched on account of a worse div record than the Pacers. Bucks have the better record (rule 2). I always though rule 1 meant winner of a division (i.e with two teams in opposing divisions). The Cavs won the Central division. Confused

H2H record tied -thought the bucks had it but was looking at ATS rec! Rule 4 I guess.

Two-team tiebreaker:

Division winner (this criterion is applied regardless of whether the tied teams are in the same division)
Better record in head-to-head games
Higher winning percentage within division (if teams are in the same division)
Higher winning percentage in conference games
Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in own conference (including tied teams)
Higher winning percentage against playoff teams in opposite conference (including tied teams)
Three-team tiebreaker:

Division winner (this criterion is applied regardless of whether the tied teams are in the same division)
Best head-to-head winning percentage among all teams tied
Highest winning percentage within division (if all tied teams are in the same division)
Highest winning percentage in conference games
Highest winning percentage against playoff teams in own conference (including tied teams)
Highest point differential between points scored and points allowed


Left out Higher winning percentage within division (if teams are in the same division) on the nba.com page. Rule change? Confused
