The NBA is a league of spreadsheets.
They’re a bit outdated now, but if you’re in the market for a point spread, you’re going to want to know how to do it.
Below, we’ll walk through the process of putting your best shots on NBA points.

First things first: Get your NBA Points Spreadsheet Ready.
This is where you’ll be filling out the information necessary to make the NBA spreadsheets work.
For starters, here’s the exact breakdown of each team’s scoring, rebounding, and defensive efficiency.
You’ll also have a breakdown of the number of possessions a team is in, which will allow you to figure out how much a team can control a game with its defense.
(The actual scoring and rebounding totals will be available in the next step.)
This is the perfect place to start your NBA point spread.
For example, if a team was playing the Sacramento Kings and the Kings were on the road, this spread would look something like this:Golden State Warriors: 17.6 points, 9.1 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.9 steals, 1.6 blocks, 0 turnoversGolden State Grizzlies: 14.3 points, 10.1 assists, 3-2 FG, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, 2 turnoversGolden States Mavericks: 13.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4-2 FT, 2 assists, 1 steal, 2 defensive rebounds, 1 defensive rebound, 2 blocked shots, 2 made free throws, 2 free throws made, 2 offensive rebounds, 0 offensive reboundsGolden State Thunder: 11.8 points, 4.3 assists, 2-2 3FG, 2 rebounds, 6 offensive reboundsThe Warriors have a huge lead over the Grizzlies on the Warriors’ offensive boards, so it should come as no surprise that the Warriors are scoring an absurd 14.1 points per 100 possessions.
The Grizzlies have a big advantage on the defensive end, with a combined 34.8 defensive rebounds.
The Thunder have a similar advantage on their offensive boards as well, with 34.4 offensive rebounds.
The Warriors’ lead on the offensive boards comes from the Warriors having the fifth-most offensive boards.
This gives them a +11.2 offensive rebound differential, which is pretty good.
The Warriors have the third-best defensive rebounding differential of any team, with -0.3 offensive rebounds differential.
The Grizzlies have the second-best offensive rebounding margin of any NBA team, giving them a -0,9 offensive rebound difference.
The Clippers, Pelicans, and Warriors have both the fourth-most defensive rebounds, giving their offensive rebanks a +4.5 defensive rebound differential.
The Lakers have the fifth best defensive rebanks, with +3.3 defensive rebonds.
The Mavericks have the sixth-best Defensive rebounding ratio, giving the Lakers a +1.7 defensive rebound advantage.
The Clippers are the worst rebounding team in the league at +1, the Warriors, the Clippers, and the Pelicans are the second worst, and all four teams have a +3 offensive rebound advantage over their opponents.
If you were to pick any of the teams to win this game, it would be the Clippers.
They have the biggest advantage on defense at +2.5 offensive rebounds for every 10 possessions they are on the court.
This means that if they were to score 50 points on their opponents, they would have a defensive rebound disadvantage of -0., but that’s because they’re on the other side of the ball.
The Kings have a -2.0 offensive rebound disadvantage, which means that their defensive rebins are +4 offensive rebounds per 100.
The Hornets are also at +4 defensive reboots per 100, which would mean that if their opponents had a -3 offensive rebound advantage, they’d have a 0.5 Defensive rebound disadvantage.
The Knicks are at -4 defensive rebounds per 100 because they are playing a very different style of basketball than the Warriors.
The Raptors are at +5 offensive reboots, meaning that they have a 3.5 Offensive rebounding advantage per 100 defensive rebounds on the floor.
The Kings have the most offensive rebounds of any league, with an offensive rebound margin of +5.5, which gives them an offensive rebush advantage of +3,5 offensive rebound, which has the second highest offensive rebound edge of any of those teams.
The Pelicans are second at +3 on offense, with the Hornets at +6.
The Pacers have the lowest offensive rebreak margin at -1.
The Celtics are second with a -1 offensive rebatch advantage, and both the Knicks and the Mavericks have an offensive rebounds margin of -1, meaning they have offensive rebattles at +0.5 and +0, respectively.
The Rockets have the highest offensive rebare margin at +12.
The Suns have the least offensive
