Power Rankings for All NBA Teams
- Milwaukee Bucks 52-8
Of course, the Bucks had a perfect 4-0 week featuring three road wins against fellow Eastern Conference opponents.
- Los Angeles Lakers 46-13
The Lakers won three games this week, including a nice road win against Zion and the Pelicans.
- Boston Celtics 41-18
The Celtics won back-to-back road games against Portland and Utah but dropped a home game vs. Houston in overtime by one single point.
- Denver Nuggets 41-19
Denver took care of Detroit at home and managed to win big against the Raptors in a 15 point victory.
- Toronto 42-18
This was a bad week for Toronto, as not only did they lose to Milwaukee and Denver, they also dropped a home game against the lowly Charlotte Hornets, ouch.
- Houston Rockets 39-20
Houston extended their win streak to six games, as they have been red hot as of late. This is the best time of the year to be playing at your best.
- Los Angeles Clippers 41-19
The Clippers needed this rebound week, as the Clips took down the Suns, Nuggets, and 76ers throughout the week.
- Miami Heat 38-22
The Heat continued their weird tendency of losing to awful teams with losses to the Cavs and T-Wolves, but they managed to beat the Mavericks and Nets at home to salvage the week.
- Utah Jazz 37-22
Utah dropped two home games to the Suns and Celtics but ended their four-game losing streak with a 10 point win over the Wizards.
- Oklahoma City Thunder 37-23
OKC took a bad, 47 point loss to Milwaukee in their most recent game. That loss snapped a five-game win streak for the Thunder.
- Dallas Mavericks 37-24
Dallas won three of their four games this week, including two road victories against Western Conference teams.
- Philadelphia 76ers 37-24
The 76ers took a bad loss to the Cavs but took care of business against the Knicks and Hawks to break even this week.
- Indiana Pacers 36-24
This was a good week for Indiana, as they managed to have a clean, 3-0 week albeit the games being against weaker teams.
- Memphis Grizzlies 29-31
Memphis really needed that win over the Lakers at home, as they have struggled badly prior to that. It is put up or shut up time for the young Grizzlies.
- Orlando Magic 27-33
Orlando has now won five of their last seven games, as the Magic have played well as of late. Can they keep it up with an upcoming four-game road trip? We will see.
- Brooklyn Nets 26-33
The Nets lost their first three of the four on their current road trip, and it does not get any easier against the Celtics in TD Garden on Tuesday.
- New Orleans Pelicans 26-34
The Pelicans lost both games to the Lakers this week, which brings up the question of whether this Pelicans team can compete with the big boys quite yet.
- Sacramento Kings 26-34
The Kings won three of their last four, and their upcoming schedule features six of seven games at home.
- San Antonio Spurs 25-33
The Spurs had a light schedule with only two games this week, in which they split with a one-point win and a six-point loss.
- Portland Trail Blazers 26-35
Portland lost all three games they played this week, including a road game to the Hawks on Saturday.
- Phoenix Suns 24-37
The Suns’ true colors showed once again as Phoenix lost all three home games this week.
22. Washington Wizards 22-37
The Wizards won two of three games this week and Bradley Beal continues to dominate on the scoreboard.
- Charlotte Hornets 21-39
Charlotte won perhaps their biggest game of the season, a road victory over the defending champion Raptors who were red hot going into that game.
- Chicago Bulls 20-40
Chicago lost to the Thunder and Knicks this week as their recent woes continue.
- Atlanta Hawks 19-43
The Hawks lost to the Magic but defeated the Nets and Trail Blazers at home. Trust the process.
- Detroit Pistons 20-42
The Pistons managed to win a game this week, which is always a positive for this team.
- New York Knicks 18-42
The Knicks introduced their new team president, Leon Rose. God bless his soul.
- Minnesota Timberwolves 17-42
The T-Wolves took down the Heat on the road and then went back to normal and lost to the Magic and Mavericks.
- Cleveland Cavaliers 17-43
The Cavs beat the 76ers at home and dropped the following two games. Their upcoming schedule does not look too bright.
- Golden State Warriors 13-48
The Warriors beat the Suns on the road which snapped an eight-game losing streak. Hoorah!
