    Here is the link to conference standings on NBA.com

    I'm not positive, but believe the NBA had a rules change that only guarantees a 4th seed to a division winner to allow the two best teams in a division to meet in the conference finals.

    Also on sports.yahoo.com on the NBA link, they show the standings by both division and conference.

    You're right about the rules change regarding the seedings, WeRDevos. I knew there had been a change, but wasn't sure what it was.
