NBA Power Rankings

1. Miami Heat 25-7- Recently had a back to back to back and went 3-0, winning each game by double digits.

2. Oklahoma City Thunder 25-7- Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook became the first duo of teammates to score 40 points in a game since  MJ and Pippen in 1996.

3. San Antonio Spurs 22-9- 10 game winning streak for the old team that won’t win a championship according to the experts.

The injury bug hits Manu again. He’ll miss two more weeks with a strained oblique strain.

4. Chicago Bulls 26-8- Derrick Rose finally returns and they dominate the Atlanta Hawks.

5. Dallas Mavericks 21-12- Fell victim to the Linsanity on Sunday, but have won 7 out of 8.
6. LA Clippers 19-10- Weird game against the Spurs. Chris Paul turnover leads to a game tying three and then they lose in OT.
7. Philadelphia 76ers 20-12- That was an awful call to end the game.  That still isn’t a foul on Kevin Love.
8. Orlando Magic 21-12- When they don’t make their threes and Dwight doesn’t feel like playing, you have games like Sunday against Miami.
9. Houston Rockets 19-14-

Kyle Lowry is having a break out year, averaging 15 points, 7 assists, and 5 rebounds a game.

 10. Memphis Grizzlies 18-15- Have won 6 out of 8 with Philadelphia and Dallas coming up on a short home stand.

11. Los Angeles Lakers 18-13-Brutal stretch with Dallas, Oklahoma City and Minnesota coming up.

12.  Atlanta Hawks 19-13- A brutal stretch against Miami, LA, Phoenix, Portland and Chicago has gone 1-4 so far.  Knicks and Magic still left on tap before Golden State to end the month.

13.Indiana Pacers 19-12- Wins against New Jersey and Charlotte come after losing five in a row.

14.  Portland Trail Blazers 17-15- It’s been an up and down month for Portland. Wins over Denver and Atlanta are nullified by losses  to Washington and Sacramento.

15.  Denver Nuggets 17-15- Were apart of history Sunday…not in a good way.  The Nuggets were the first team to give up a 50 point, 40 point, and triple-double to a trio of teammates in NBA history in their loss to the Thunder.

16.  Minnesota TWolves 16-16- Rubio and Love are making it fun to be Timberwolves fan again.

22. Milwaukee Bucks 13-19- Brandon Jennings doesn’t want to be there and that’s not good news for Bucks fans.

29. Washington Wizards 7-25- A lost cause….

30. Charlotte Bobcats 4-27- Could go down as one of the worst in NBA history.
