NBA 2016-2017: END

The 2016-2017 NBA regular season is over, so here are the 16-game splits for games 65-80, plus the amount of wins for games 81-82 (asterisks placed on teams that would make the postseason if only six teams made it per conference for this split only):

As I did for the START, OLD YEAR, ALL-STAR BREAK/MIDSEASON, and POST-TRADE DEADLINE reviews, I will run through each team’s offensive and defensive rankings (efficiency); the time period here will be from March 12 through April 12, the final day of the regular season. I’ll add in the most used lineup during that timespan, with net efficiency and minutes played.

Most used lineups for this split that were also the team’s most used lineup for the entire season are highlighted.

Here are the offensive and defensive efficiency rankings for the entire 2016-2017 regular season all in one place:
