NBA teams have made it past the midpoint of the season, as every team has played at least 48 games. Here are the 16-game splits for games 33-48 (asterisks placed on teams that would make the postseason if only six teams made it per conference):

I’ll go through each team’s offensive and defensive rankings (efficiency) from January 1 through February 1, and I’ll add in the most used lineup for that time span. I’ll also add each team’s record after the first 41 games of this season and the team’s record from the 2014-2015 season. Players that will participate in All-Star Weekend in some capacity will be listed as well:
