TeamRecordPrevious Rank
1. GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS18-22
   10-point win in Chicago made me realize how awesome they are.
2. MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES17-41
   12 wins already in Western Conference.
3. HOUSTON ROCKETS16-45
   Respect how well they've played defensively without Howard and Beverley.
4. TORONTO RAPTORS16-63
   Wasn't always going to be easy for them. Lowry is shoo-in All-Star.
5. PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS17-46
   10-0 versus the East, which is what you have to do to survive out West.
6. SAN ANTONIO SPURS15-64
   Puzzling losses vs, Brooklyn & Utah. Missing 2 starters with Parker out.
7. LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS15-58
   8 consecutive wins and only 3 tough ones in next 10 on the docket.
8. DALLAS MAVERICKS16-77
   Monta Ellis is dinged up and there's no good replacement behind him.
9. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS13-713
   LeBron meets Prince William and Kate, but bench carried them.
10. WASHINGTON WIZARDS14-69
   John Wall's emotional breakdown after death of young fan was genuine.
11. ATLANTA HAWKS14-612
   Would be the No. 3 seed in the East right now.
12. CHICAGO BULLS12-810
   2-5 at home? Is that right? Circus trip, but that's not good enough.
13. PHOENIX SUNS12-1111
   I felt better about this group last season than this one.
14. SACRAMENTO KINGS11-1114
   To be .500 with DeMarcus Cousins gone so long is extremely impressive.
15. NEW ORLEANS PELICANS10-1016
   A shame because they'd have a chance to win a round in the East.
16. MIAMI HEAT10-1115
   Chris Bosh willed the Heat to a win against Phoenix.
17. MILWAUKEE BUCKS11-1217
   As bench guys get injured, Bucks will lose some momentum.
18. OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER8-1322
   Made up 2 1/2 games in a week. Getting to No. 8 might be a breeze.
19. DENVER NUGGETS9-1218
   Get the feeling Brian Shaw doesn't like being the head coach here.
20. BROOKLYN NETS8-1120
   Didn't even get to take pictured with Kate Middleton.
21. ORLANDO MAGIC9-1421
   3-3 on western trip and could've easily beaten Golden State.
22. BOSTON CELTICS7-1224
   Rondo sat out most of 2nd half and both overtimes against Washington.
23. INDIANA PACERS7-1419
   Effort and defense are great, but still need some skill guys to win.
24. LOS ANGELES LAKERS6-1625
   Moved up because everyone else has been truly putrid.
25. CHARLOTTE BOBCATS5-1526
   Should Steve Clifford be on the hot seat?
26. UTAH JAZZ6-1623
   Snap 9-game losing streak against the Spurs. Strange world.
27. NEW YORK KNICKS4-1927
   Didn't think it would be this bad. "Loser's mentality," per Phil Jackson.
28. PHILADELPHIA 76ERS2-1830
   Can't rank them lower than the 2 teams they beat in the last week.
29. MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES4-1628
   Only team allowing opponents over 50 percent from the field.
30. DETROIT PISTONS3-1929
   Lost 13 straight and Stan Van Gundy looks spent and lost already.
