Power Rankings: Spurs Remain Atop NBA, Lakers Continue To Slide

30. Cleveland Cavaliers (Last week’s ranking: 29): It didn’t seem possible for things to get worse in Cleveland; but when Mo Williams is your best player and he goes down with an injury, things apparently can. The only conceivable way morale in Cleveland could drop any lower is if they don’t have a top three pick in the draft.

29. Sacramento Kings (30): Improved play from rookie DeMarcus Cousins (21.6 PPG and 10.6 RPG over his last three games) has been the only recent bright spot for these young Kings, who sport a league-worst 7-24 record.

28. New Jersey Nets (25) They’re losers of five in a row, but that’s not surprising considering four of those L’s have come against New Orleans, Orlando, Oklahoma City and Chicago. On the bright side, they seemed to have found a gem in former-Laker Sasha Vujacic, who put up 22 points in New Jersey’s 15 point loss to Minnesota on Saturday.

27. Washington Wizards (27): John Wall is finally back and a return to the small forward position has allowed Rashard Lewis to return to his true form; but this team is too immature and too young to make a splash right now.

26. Minnesota Timberwolves (28): The Timberwolves better enjoy the services of Love and Beasley now, because when they become free agents, you best believe that the T’Wolves will be worse off then they are now – which is almost impossible to believe considering their dismal 9-25 record.

Next: 25-21
