In case you need to figure out what everything means.

Yeah, so:

I probably should've thought of that myself. Anyway, this is what everything means:

Record: Duh.
Adj.Off. Eff.: Adjusted Offensive Efficiency. This is the rate at which teams score goals per possession, adjusted for defenses played.
Adj.Off. Eff.: Adjusted Defensive Efficiency. This is the rate at which teams allow goals per possession, adjusted for offenses played.
Adj.Eff. Margin.: Margin between adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency.
Pyth. Win Exp.: Pythagorean win expectation. If you want an explanation, Google it.
I used adjusted efficiencies as the basis.

Opnt. Unforc. T/O per 100 Def. Opps.: Opponent unforced turnovers per 100 defensive opportunities.
Caused T/O per 100 Def. Opps.: Caused turnovers generated per 100 defensive opportunities.
