Power Rankings for All NHL Teams
- Milwaukee Bucks 46-8
The Bucks are still the best team in the league right now, despite their loss to the Pacers in their last game. They won five straight before the loss
- Los Angeles Lakers 41-12
The Lakers won three-straight heading into the All-Star Break over the Nuggets, Suns, and Warriors. The offense has looked great in that span.
- Toronto Raptors 40-15
The Raptors took a loss to Brooklyn to head into the break. They had won fifteen straight before that game, so they remain one of the contenders in the East.
- Boston Celtics 38-16
Boston won a nice home game over LAC 141-133. They have won eight of their last nine games and are right behind Toronto.
- Denver Nuggets 38-17
Denver took a four-point home loss to the Lakers after winning four straight games before that.
- Utah Jazz 36-18
The Jazz are getting hot again, as they have won four in a row after their losing streak of four games.
- Los Angeles Clippers 37-18
The Clippers have lost two in a row and three of their last four. Kawhi Leonard was awarded the Kobe Bryant MVP award for the All-Star Game.
- Miami Heat 35-19
The Heat lost four of their last five games heading into the break, which is definitely a concern.
- Philadelphia 76ers 34-21
The 76ers won three straight at home before the break and will look to build on that. Their next game is at home against their division rival, Brooklyn Nets.
- Houston Rockets 34-20
Houston took down Boston at home 116-105 in their last game before the break.
- Dallas Mavericks 33-22
Doncic scored 33 points in his return from injury against the Kings in a winning effort. The Mavs severely need him every step of the way for the rest of the season.
- Oklahoma City Thunder 33-22
The Thunder took down Zion’s Pelicans 123-118 on the road. Chris Paul completed his first alley-oop dunk in the All-Star Game, which was very entertaining to see.
- Indiana Pacers 32-23
What better way to snap a nagging losing streak than to grab a win at home over the league’s best Milwaukee Bucks.
- Memphis Grizzlies 28-26
The Grizzlies took down the Wizards and Trail Blazers to head into the break. Every win is big for the rest of the season for Memphis.
- Brooklyn Nets 25-28
The Nets have won four of their last five and two of which were against the Pacers and Raptors. Is this the time that Brooklyn gets hot?
- Portland Trail Blazers 25-31
Portland lost two road games to Memphis and New Orleans, as their defense has struggled recently.
- Orlando Magic 24-31
Orlando got two much-needed wins over the Hawks and Pistons at home. Orlando is currently 3.0 games ahead of the Wizards for the last spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
- San Antonio Spurs 23-31
The Spurs have developed a big, 5.0 game hole for themselves for the 8th seed in the West after they lost five games.
- New Orleans Pelicans 23-32
The Pelicans are 5.5 games behind Memphis despite winning three of their last four games to head into the break.
- Phoenix Suns 22-33
The Suns snapped their two-game losing streak with a win over Golden State, 112-106.
- Sacramento Kings 21-33
The Kings lost two road games to the Bucks and Mavericks, as they were expected to.
- Washington Wizards 20-33
Washington won three of four including a 119-118 home win over the Mavericks. They find themselves only 3.0 games behind the Magic for the 8th seed in the EC.
- Charlotte Hornets 18-36
The Hornets won a game over Detroit by only scoring 87 points. Yeah, you read that correctly, 87 points.
- New York Knicks 17-38
The Knicks went on a four-game win streak but have fallen back to earth after losing to the Hawks and Wizards.
- Chicago Bulls 19-36
Six losses in a row for Chicago as their defense has played very poorly recently.
- Detroit Pistons 29-38
The Pistons have suffered on offense without Andre Drummond, and they have lost four straight.
- Atlanta Hawks 15-41
The Hawks’ defense makes it impossible for them to win consistently. They lost back-to-back road games to the Magic and Cavs to head into ASG weekend.
- Minnesota Timberwolves 16-37
The T-Wolves finally ended their historic losing streak with a win over the Clippers.
- Cleveland Cavaliers 14-40
The Cavs have the worst record in the Eastern Conference and are two losses away from clinching an under .500 season.
- Golden State Warriors 12-43
From an NBA Finals appearance to the worst record in the NBA, the Warriors are looking forward to the 2020-21 season.
