Western Conference

The Western Conference of the National Basketball Association contains fifteen teams divided evenly between three divisions: the Southwest Division, the Northwest Division, and the Pacific Division.

The Western Conference teams, in recent history, are generally the stronger teams in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs winning multiple championships apiece in the last decade. Western Conference teams generally play more than two games with each of the other teams in the Conference with a higher percentage being played with teams in the same division. Teams from the Eastern Conference are only played twice: once at home and once away.

Players on Western Conference teams are generally larger, and the teams usually run more and have higher scoring games.
