By Jim Brighters, NBA Editor

TeamRecordPrevious Rank
1. GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS64-151
   Think they're going to sweep all awards but ROY and 6th Man.
2. ATLANTA HAWKS59-192
   Oh, would I be displeased with Thabo Sefolosha. Steam.
3. HOUSTON ROCKETS53-253
   Donatas Motiejunas out for season with back injury. No luck.
4. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS51-275
   David Blatt should sneak into top 5 in Coach of the Year voting.
5. SAN ANTONIO SPURS53-266
   Everyone, and I mean everyone, but me is going to pick them in West.
6. MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES53-254
   Rugged team should be OK in playoffs, but timing stinks.
7. LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS53-267
   11-1 in last 12, but 4 vs. teams with winning records.
8. PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS51-288
   I almost forget LaMarcus Aldridge was a free agent this summer.
9. DALLAS MAVERICKS47-319
   Chandler Parsons' injury lingers before playoffs.
10. CHICAGO BULLS47-3210
   Rose is back. Give it a go with full roster, Thibs.
11. WASHINGTON WIZARDS45-3313
   4-game winning streak. They could get to No. 3. I'm so confused.
12. TORONTO RAPTORS46-3211
   DeMar DeRozan is fantastic. Lowry could return Friday.
13. NEW ORLEANS PELICANS42-3614
   Tyreke Evans isn't getting much credit this season. Very steady.
14. OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER42-3612
   "You're going the wrong way."
15. BROOKLYN NETS36-4217
   Brook Lopez and Deron Williams are turning back time. I like it.
16. MILWAUKEE BUCKS38-4015
   Jason Kidd's refusal to explain Giannis Antetokounmpo's DNP was poor.
17. PHOENIX SUNS39-4016
   Jeff Hornacek doesn't like Gerald Green. That's a solid summation.
18. BOSTON CELTICS36-4219
   Isaiah Thomas wrapped up Sixth Man of the Year award.
19. UTAH JAZZ36-4220
   Best defensive team in the league in terms of opponents' scoring.
20. INDIANA PACERS35-4322
   Tough to make playoffs with everything swirling around Copeland.
21. MIAMI HEAT35-4418
   Might miss playoffs and lose their first-round pick. Ouch.
22. CHARLOTTE HORNETS33-4521
   Whole starting frontline is out with injury. Try again next season.
23. DETROIT PISTONS30-4823
   Re-sign Monroe, pass on Jackson, improve KCP and Drummond. Getting there.
24. DENVER NUGGETS29-4924
   Melvin Hunt has an enthusiasm I like.
25. SACRAMENTO KINGS27-5125
   DeMarcus Cousins is getting plenty of rest at the end of the campaign.
26. ORLANDO MAGIC25-5326
   Good for them playing well for their interim coach.
27. LOS ANGELES LAKERS20-5827
   I don't know what to say about them.
28. PHILADELPHIA 76ERS18-6128
   18 wins was WAY more than I thought preseason.
29. MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES16-6229
   I'd still vote for Andrew Wiggins for Rookie of the Year. It's tight.
30. NEW YORK KNICKS15-6330
   Don't re-sign Andrea Bargnani. You'll thank me later.
