15. New York Knicks are 6-8 and look like they are enjoying the services of Amare Stoudemire.
14. Golden State Warriors are 7-6 and are the last team in the rankings to have a winning record at this moment. However their stock has fallen after last night’s blowout loss to the Lakers.
13. Phoenix Suns are 6-7 and have been having trouble filling in the shoes Amare Stoudemire left at center. Robin Lopez suffered a injury a week ago too. The Suns suffered blowout losses in Florida against Orlando and Miami. It’s a work in progress in Phoenix.
12. Denver Nuggets are 7-6 and have been having problems with injured players. Carmelo Anthony has been producing well for the team despite wanting to be traded.
11. Portland Trail Blazers are 8-6 but will have to play without Greg Oden, who will be out another full season with another injury. Brandon Roy has been hurt of late too, but the team is hanging on tight in the young season.
