NBA Power Rankings Week 2

  1. Cleveland Cavaliers (3-0) — Lebron James and the Cavs started off the season the way they ended last season, on fire. They are playing well, don’t expect them to falter with a slightly challenging game.
  2. San Antonio Spurs (4-0) – No Tim Duncan, no problem. Popovich is a master of adaptation and that is no more apparent than when he rests his aging stars and still wins on the road in hostile environments.
  3. Los Angeles Clippers (3-0) – The Clippers have been frequently in the top of the West over the past few years, but they can seem to get past the humps knows as the Spurs and Warriors.
  4. Chicago Bulls (3-0) – D Wade is playing very well for a player who chased the money for what is likely his final contract in the NBA. The team is rather impressive in comparison to what their roster looks like.
  5. Golden State Warriors (2-1) – Smacked. Destroyed. Annihilated. Pick a word to describe what the Spurs did to the Warriors in the first game of the season and you’d be rather accurate, no one should have expected the Warriors to get off to an amazing start, but that was embarrassing.
  6. Toronto Raptors (2-1) – The second best team in the East. They stayed with the Cavs until the end. They have great scoring and they’re fast on defense. If it wasn’t for the very dangerous Cavs, they would be the favorite in the East.
  7. Boston Celtics (2-1) – Beating the Hornets is the only reason they remained in the top 10. They weren’t what was originally thought they would be to start to season, luckily there’s still almost a full season to go.
  8. Charlotte Hornets (2-1) – Steve Clifford and defense go together like parents and weekends away from their kids. One loss makes them look human, but MKG being back is powering this team to dangerous heights.
  9. Portland Trail Blazers (2-1) – Damian Lillard, Damian Lillard, and Damian Lillard. These team was thought to be left for dead once Aldridge left, but that one man, Lillard, is powering the Blazers, but for how long?
  10. Memphis Grizzlies (2-1) – The lack of health is frightening for the Grizzlies. Their role players are sorely needing to get better, but the Grizzlies are a good team. They can withstand the early season slate and comfortably make the playoffs.
  11. Atlanta Hawks (3-0)
  12. Miami Heat (1-2)
  13. Oklahoma City Thunder (3-0)
  14. Houston Rockets (2-1)
  15. Utah Jazz (1-2)
