NBA Power Rankings: Week 14

Another week has gone by, and another set of Power Rankings are up. The Spurs have taken the top spot in the Rankings and Bobcats hold up the backend. The Hornets leaped three spots whereas the Timberwolves dropped three spots in this week’s Power Rankings.

 

Power Rankings Week 14:

(W-L Season) followed by (W-L From previous week)

Ranking from previous week in parentheses. 

(3). San Antonio Spurs (36-11) (4-0) – With Ginobli healthy, and the rest of the team relatively healthy, the Spurs should cruise for a long time.

(1). Oklahoma City Thunder (34-11) (2-2) – They just finished their tough road trip which did not finish like they wish it would have (3-3).

(2). Los Angeles Clippers (33-13) (1-3) – Struggled this week without Chris Paul. They go on a 8-game road trip now and no word on when Paul should return.

(4). Miami Heat (28-13) (2-1) – Only loss was against a Rondo-less Celtics. The Heat seem to go into a “non-want” mode and just go through the motions when playing against weaker opponents.

(5). Memphis Grizzlies (28-15) (2-2) – Trade rumors keep swirling around the Grizzlies with names like Randolph and Gay being mentioned.  Read the rest of this entry

NBA Power Rankings: Week 13

Another week has gone by, and another set of Power Rankings are up. These rankings were made YESTERDAY morning, so none of the games played yesterday were taken into account. The Thunder and Bobcats bookend the rankings. The Jazz climbed give spots and the Rockets and Trail Blazers each dropped four spots in this week’s Power Rankings.

 

Power Rankings Week 13:

(W-L Season) followed by (W-L From previous week)

Ranking from previous week in parentheses. 

(1). Oklahoma City Thunder (32-9) (3-1) – Back-to-back overtime games can hurt them this upcoming week, especially with the Clippers on the schedule on Tuesday.

(2). Los Angeles Clippers (32-9) (3-0) – No CP3, no problem for the Clippers. Bledsoe has proved to be a legitimate option at PG if CP3 has to miss more games.

(3). San Antonio Spurs (32-11) (3-0) – No Ginobli last week and still a 3-0 week. They will be without him for around another week.

(4). Miami Heat (26-12) (2-1) – Big road wins against the Warriors and Lakers for a team that has struggled on the road this year.

(5). Memphis Grizzlies (26-13) (2-2) – Lost to two better teams this week, and beat two worse teams. Trade rumors brewing all around this team. Read the rest of this entry

NBA Power Rankings: Week 12

Another week has gone by, and another set of Power Rankings are up. The Thunder and Wizards continue to bookend the rankings. The Celtics climbed three spots and the Hawks and T-Wolves each dropped four spots in this week’s Power Rankings.

 

Power Rankings Week 12:

(W-L Season) followed by (W-L From previous week)

Ranking from previous week in parentheses. 

(1). Oklahoma City Thunder (29-8) (3-1) – Sure they lost to the worst team in the league, but still the best in the NBA.

(2). Los Angeles Clippers (28-9) (1-1) – Just 3-3 now since their big winning streak.

(3). San Antonio Spurs (29-11) (2-2) – Stat line of the week – Tim Duncan – 29min, 12pnts, 9rb, 5 asts, 7blk, and 3 steals.

(4). Miami Heat (24-11) (1-2) – Couldn’t close the deal against the Blazers which continued their weak road play this season.

(7). Memphis Grizzlies (24-11) (3-1) – Back in the top five after another good week. If they continue their strong play will it lead to Rudy Gay being taken off the block? Read the rest of this entry

NBA Power Rankings: Week 11

With another week in the books, here are the updated Power Rankings as we head into week 11. The Thunder and Wizards continue to bookend the rankings. The Nets climbed four spots and the Lakers dropped four spots in this week’s Power Rankings.

 

Power Rankings Week 11:

(W-L Season) followed by (W-L From previous week)

Ranking from previous week in parentheses. 

(1). Oklahoma City Thunder (26-7) (3-1) – Rare home loss to the Nets, but still atop the NBA.

(2). Los Angeles Clippers (27-8) (2-2) – The streak had to end, but an impressive two wins without their main bench threat in Jamal Crawford.

(3). San Antonio Spurs (27-9) (3-1) – Boring team to watch, however they still win and at a high rate.

(4). Miami Heat (23-9) (3-1) – Just recently cut Jorts, so it appears as if they have a few extra roster spots. Maybe gearing up to make a move to bolster their bench?

(5). New York Knicks (23-10) (2-1) – Carmelo keeps playing at an MVP level and has just been named player of the week in the East. Read the rest of this entry

NFL Playoff Preview and Prediction

What a great season it has been so far. Surprises like the Redskins and Colts led by their rookie quarterbacks, disappointments by the Panthers, Steelers, and Eagles. Coaches and GM’s already being fired as we head into our first week of the playoffs. This past season has been great, but it’s not quite over with yet.
