is this really right?

Utah averaged over the season 92 ppg and allowed 95?   i suppose it's possible, but to win 50+ games out of 80, and trail the season stats by 3 ppg ?
 Huh?

Hmm. It's possible, as they won a lot of really close games and lost a few blowouts. I guess I have to trust the stat weenies to know what they're talking about.

{being lazy} i'm sure it could be right, but wow.

so, 3 ppg, 80 games (rounding)...  -240 points for the season
30 losses...  -8 per loss (average)

of course, they won 50 games (at least by 1 point each, and rounding)...
+50

so then, assuming a best case scenario for this...
differential of at least 290 then, so they actually lost those 30 games on average by at least 9.7 ppg

if they won games by an average of 3 points, then the differential goes to about 390, and then about 13 ppg in the losses...



again, i'm sure it is right... it is just an amazing stat.  (win 62% of your games close, lose 38% in blowouts ... on average...)

It would be very tough to win 62% of your games and be outscored by an average of 3 PPG. On the other hand, it is apparently possible to lead the conference in scoring differential yet finish in 3rd place in your own division.

Witness the Chicago Bulls, who finished behind Detroit AND Cleveland, but lead the Eastern Conference in scoring differential with a +5.0.  How did they do it? They beat Miami 108-66 on 10/31/06, beat Memphis 111-66 on 01/13/07, beat New York 98-69 on 04/10/07, and beat Washington 101-68 on 04/15/07--four games in which the opponent scored less than 70. I'm surprised I didn't hear about any controversy over the Bulls running up the score.

OTOH, the Spurs lead the league in defense AND scoring differential, yet they didn't hold any opponent to under 70 points. IOW, they probably didn't try to rub it in the faces of their opponents when the game was in hand.
