NBA Power Rankings....12/14/10
Weekly Top 10 – 12/14/10
1. Spurs – Timmy and his sidekicks are on another nice win streak. Richard Jefferson’s improvement has been the difference this year in the fast start.
2. Celtics - Running away and hiding in the East this year. Doing it with a hole in the middle. Anxious to see how good this team can be when their bigs get healthy.
3. Mavericks – Are you serious, 12 wins in a row then lose at home to Milwaukee? Mavs have a couple gimmes then the schedule gets tough until the end of the month.
4. Lakers - Hit a bump in the road losing four in a row, but now seem to have weathered that storm and playing better. Favorable schedule doesn’t hurt.
5. Thunder - Durant is healthy and the Thunder now tied with the Jazz for the Northwest Division lead. Seven of their next nine at home will help keep that lead.
6. Heat - Winners of eight in a row by over at least 10 points in every game. Miami is beginning to live up to their preseason hype now.
7. Jazz – Struggled at home this losing five times this year in their friendly surroundings. Deron Williams averaging 23ppg and 10 assists is not to blame.
8. Magic – Underachieving ball club so far this year. Howard has been carrying this team on his back so far. Very inconsistent team as of last couple weeks.
9. Bulls - Winners of five in a row, just after getting embarrassed by Orlando and Boston. Rose averaging 25 a game this year and has been outstanding lately.
10. Knicks – Winners of 13 of their last 14, this club is rolling and Amare’ is playing lights out. Very nice upgrade over David Lee in the Big Apple this year.
And amongst the NBA's Bottom 10 is perennial doormat, the LA Clippers, whose owner deservedly hates and bashes one of his own players--one of the fattest, laziest, softest players in the NBA--Baron Davis.
