1. MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES10-11
   Put up 119 against the best defense in the league.
2. HOUSTON ROCKETS9-22
   Got taught a valuable lesson about toughness against Memphis.
3. GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS8-23
   East road trip looms as big test, although not the stiffest competition.
4. TORONTO RAPTORS8-24
   Huge test awaits versus Memphis. Will need big night from backcourt.
5. CHICAGO BULLS8-35
   Beating Clippers in LA, without Rose and Pau, was awesome.
6. WASHINGTON WIZARDS7-26
   Dallas and Cleveland up next, although both at home. Gets tougher.
7. DALLAS MAVERICKS8-311
   When clicking, offense is almost impossible to stop.
8. PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS8-315
   Damian Lillard puts team on his back without Aldridge and Batum.
9. SAN ANTONIO SPURS6-48
   Wonder if Pop will play Big 3 against LeBron and company on Wednesday.
10. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS5-49
   4 guys go for 20-plus, and they lose to the Nuggets. Gonna take time.
11. NEW ORLEANS PELICANS6-416
   Great record and Eric Gordon is scoring under 10 ppg. Imagine what if...
12. MIAMI HEAT6-57
   Josh McRoberts has been an impact signing yet, huh?
13. SACRAMENTO KINGS6-510
   DeMarcus Cousins sounds like a changed man. Defense is so critical.
14. LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS5-412
   Long road trip, and 1st time out of CA, will help these guys.
15. MILWAUKEE BUCKS6-517
   Brandon Knight for the All-Star Game. Who's with me?
16. PHOENIX SUNS6-514
   Alex Len is wearing his big boy pants now.
17. ATLANTA HAWKS5-518
   They'll always be a .500 team. Gonna have some good wins and bad losses.
18. BROOKLYN NETS4-613
   Struggling badly, but should get boost in Jason Kidd return. Boooooo
19. CHARLOTTE BOBCATS4-720
   Lance Stephenson returns to Indy on Wednesday. Boooooo
20. UTAH JAZZ5-721

22. INDIANA PACERS4-726
   AJ Price is a medical exemption steal.
23. BOSTON CELTICS3-619
   Hung in with good teams, but always find a way to cough it up.
