Power Rankings for All NBA Teams
Another week has been played in the NBA. With playoff battles developing, it should be quite an exciting finish to the regular season. Let’s take a look at the power rankings as of now.
- Milwaukee Bucks 48-8
The Bucks are the first team in the league to clinch a playoff berth. They have a 6.5 game lead on Toronto for the first seed in the Eastern Conference.
- Los Angeles Lakers 43-12
The Lakers have won five in a row, including a two-point home victory over Boston in their most previous game.
- Toronto Raptors 42-15
Toronto has won two straight games at home against the Suns and Pacers as they prepare for a home game against Giannis and the Bucks on Tuesday.
- Denver Nuggets 39-18
Denver took care of business against Minnesota at home, which snapped a two-game losing streak.
- Boston Celtics 39-17
Boston lost a close one to the Lakers at the Staples Center on Sunday. They currently are the third seed in the Eastern Conference.
- Houston Rockets 36-20
Houston is starting to heat up after three straight wins, two of which being on the road.
- Miami Heat 36-20
Miami has the luxury of playing a home-and-home against Cleveland, in which they already won the first half at home.
- Los Angeles Clippers 37-19
The Clippers have dropped their last three games, which is very unlike them. They have also lost four of their last five overall.
- Utah Jazz 36-20
The Jazz seem to get really hot and then freeze after a while. Two straight losses for Utah at home.
- Oklahoma City Thunder 35-22
Watch out, here comes OKC. They are on a three-game win streak against solid Western Conference teams.
- Dallas Mavericks 34-23
Dallas received a tough loss on the road against Atlanta, but are still in a good position in the West.
- Philadelphia 76ers 35-22
Philly lost by 21 to Milwaukee on the road, which snapped their four-game win streak. They have to be able to compete on the road, as they have lost their last six away from home.
- Indiana Pacers 33-24
Indiana took a stinker against Toronto on the road, 127-81. Losses like that are demoralizing for any team in any situation.
- Memphis Grizzlies 28-28
Back-to-back losses for Memphis put them right at .500 on the season thus far.

The Pelicans have won two straight road games against the Trail Blazers and Warriors. They have also won five of their last six overall.

Orlando dropped a home game to Dallas in their last game. That snapped a two-game home win streak for the Magic.
- San Antonio Spurs 24-32
The Spurs dropped their last game, 131-103, to the Thunder on the road. Their eight-game road trip finally has ended.
