NBA Power Rankings Week 16: Spurs, Heat Continue To Dominate


20. Dallas Mavericks (22-28): The Mavs are 5-5 over their last ten games.

19. Philadelphia 76ers (22-27): The Sixers have won four of their last five games, while Jrue Holiday continues his solid level of play. Andrew Bynum believes he’ll be able to finally play towards the end of this month.

18. Milwaukee Bucks (25-24): Milwaukee has lost three games in a row. Samuel Dalembert has emerged over the last few games, however, including a 35 point, 12 rebound performance on Tuesday.

17. Portland Trail Blazers (25-26): The Blazers have also lost three games in a row, and are 1-3 so far on their six-game road trip.

16. Utah Jazz (28-24): The Jazz have an outstanding record at home 19-6, but just 9-18 on the road.

15. Houston Rockets (28-25): The Rockets give up the most points in the league (103.2), but also average 106.1 points themselves.

14. Los Angeles Lakers (24-28): The Lakers still haven’t quite figured it out, and Pau Gasol likely being out for six to eight weeks with a foot injury is definitely bad news for the Lakers. However, the Lakers have managed to win seven of their last ten games since Kobe Bryant has stepped into the role of facilitator, for the most part.

13. Golden State Warriors (30-21): Having lost four games in a row–all on the road–the Warriors have lost some steam. They once had an excellent road record at the beginning of the season, but are just 14-15 now.

12. Atlanta Hawks (27-22): The Hawks are 5-5 over their last ten games.

11. Brooklyn Nets (29-22): The Nets’ up-and-down season has continued, as has Deron Williams’ inconsistency.
