A Magic Number (MN) determines if a team makes the playoffs. If it is at 1, a team has at least clinched a tie for the playoffs. If it is at 0, they have clinched a playoff berth. Every win decreases the MN and every loss by the team in second place also decreases the MN. Only teams in playoff position have a MN.
x – Clinched Playoff Berth
y – Clinched Conference Championship
z – Clinched #1 Overall Seed
e – Eliminated from playoff contention
