BKN--NBAExpandedGlan

April 18, 2002

The standings have been arranged to reflect how the teams will be determined for the playoffs. The two division winners (P--Pacific; M--Midwest; A--Atlantic; C--Central) from each conference will be the top two seeds and the next six teams with the best records will be seeded third through eighth. If the playoffs started today, the top eight teams in each conference would make the playoffs, and the top-seeded team would play the eighth-seeded team, the seventh team would play the second, etc. Any teams tied are listed in order of best conference record.
