Stand­ings have been ar­ranged to re­flect how the teams will be determined for the play­offs. The three di­vi­sion win­ners from each con­fer­ence will be the top three seeded teams and the next five teams with the best records will be seeded fourth through eighth. How­ever, if the fourth-seeded team has a bet­ter record than the sec­ond- or thirdbest di­vi­sion leader, it will move up to sec­ond or third. The top eight teams in each con­fer­ence make the play­offs, and the top-seeded team would play the eighth-seeded team, the sev­enth team would play the sec­ond, etc. Head-to-head com­pe­ti­tion is the first of sev­eral tiebreak­ers, fol­lowed by con­fer­ence record. (West­ern Con­fer­ence di­vi­sions: S-South­west; P-Pa­cific; N-North­west; Eastern Con­fer­ence di­vi­sions: A-At­lantic; C-Cen­tral; S-Southeast)
