NBA: The Best Home Teams / Franchises of All Time

The San Antonio Spurs Are The Best Home Team In NBA History

The San Antonio Spurs Are The Best Home Team In NBA History

Only two teams have over a 70 percent all-time home winning percentage: the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. The Spurs have quite the lead up top, though: 0.736 to 0.700. The Utah Jazz round out the top three at 0.693.

So much for the “Mecca of Basketball.” The New York Knicks languish in 20th.

There’s something about the Western crowds, actually – home teams out West do A LOT better. How much? Western Conference teams make up the top seven below and eight of the top 10.
