    Default NBA.com Power Rankings

    1 Dallas (1)44- 9Barring any letdowns to the Heat, Nuggets, Hawks or Timberwolves, the Mavs could stroll into March on a 13-game win streak.
    2 Phoenix (3)41-13Eric Piatkowski may have said it best, "As long as Superman stays healthy, we could win a championship."
    3 Detroit (4)34-19Don't plan on seeing Rasheed Wallace Friday night. The Pistons outspoken big man sounded off one (or 15) too many times and gets an automatic one-game sitdown.
    4 Utah (2)35-18You never want to suffer any injuries in an exhibition, but that's just what the Jazz got from Deron Williams' participation Friday. He sat Tuesday -- a loss.
    5 San Antonio (7)37-18Manu Ginobili 24, Atlanta 23. Go ahead, watch all 24 points straight by the Spurs star.
    TEAM (LAST WK) REC.BREAKDOWN
    6 Houston (5)34-19Including Wednesday's win over Miami, the Rockets are 11-0 this season when shooting 50 percent or better.
    7 Washington (8)30-21With Antawn shelved, the Wizards are fortunate Arenas didn't hurt himself horsing around Sunday. That said, if you missed his trampoline dunk, on NBA.com.
    8 Toronto (9)29-25If the Raps want to prove they belong in the division lead, they'll have to do so beating the likes of San Antonio and Houston this week.
    9 Cleveland (10)32-22The Cavs have held six of their last eight opponents to 90 or fewer points. They've also won six games during the span.
    10 Miami (6)26-27Riley's return to the bench will do little for this team if Wade is sidelined for up to six weeks, as speculated when he left Wednesday's loss with a shoulder injury.
    11 Chicago (12)30-25Despite sitting tied for third place in their division, the Bulls actually have the best in-division record among all Central teams.
    12 Indiana (14)29-24Distractions aside, the Pacers have won three straight. They play the Raptors, Kings and Suns before the month's out.
    13 L.A. Lakers (11)30-25No Phil Jackson-led team had ever dropped six straight games until his Lakers did just that, falling at home to Portland on Wednesday.
    14 Denver (13)26-26Injury woes continue for the Nuggets, who will be without J.R. Smith for the next few weeks after arthroscopic surgery in his left knee.
    15 NO/Okla City (17)26-29Chris Paul looks to be nearing his pre-injury form, averaging 16.2 points and 8.2 assists through the month of February.
    16 Minnesota (16)25-29If the Wolves hope to play beyond April 18, they'd do well to pick up a few wins on their current homestand. Suns, Wiz, Mavs, Jazz and Lakers await.
    17 Orlando (15)27-28The Magic get a second shot at Detroit on Friday, but this time in its own gym where Orlando is 18-10 (compared to 9-18 on the road).
    18 New York (20)24-31Watching David Lee post double-doubles nightly and take MVP honors in Friday's Rookie Challenge, it's easy to see why the Knicks might hesitate to include him in any trades.
    19 L.A. Clippers (18)25-29The break did nothing to snap the Clippers losing ways. The team has now dropped seven of the last eight.
    20 Golden State (23)26-29J-Rich returned from a seven-week layoff to notch a double-double for the Warriors. His presence could help the Warriors stay in the playoff picture.
    21 New Jersey (19)25-30At this point, it looks like the division could go to the Raptors regardless what happens with Kidd and Carter.
    22 Sacramento (21)23-29The Kings tip off a four game road trip at Washington tonight. Stops at New Jersey, Indiana and Philly await.
    23 Portland (24)24-32Believe it or not, the Blazers are a mere 2 1/2 games back of the eighth and final playoff spot in the West.
    24 Atlanta (22)21-33The Hawks have won four of six on the road in February. They play at Dallas and Oklahoma City this week.
    25 Charlotte (25)21-33The Bobcats have won three straight and could add many more Ws if Adam Morrison continues to play like he did Wednesday in Minnesota.
    26 Seattle (26)21-32The Sonics went 8-14 with Rashard Lewis sidelined; 3-1 since he returned, including three straight (and counting) wins.
    27 Philadelphia (27)18-3615 of the Sixers' 18 wins have come when holding an opponent under 100 points.
    28 Boston (29)13-40The Cs are 1-5 this season in road-road back-to-back sets. They visit the Lakers and Jazz on consecutive nights this weekend.
    29 Memphis (28)14-42Memphis is the only team in the league yet to string together back-to-back wins this season.
    30 Milwaukee (30)19-36Michael Redd seems to have shaken off the rust after a lengthy layoff, but the Bucks can't shake the Ls.

    If last night and the Detroit game are any indication, Milwaukee is out of place at #30.

    Don't plan on seeing Rasheed Wallace Friday night. The Pistons outspoken big man sounded off one (or 15) too many times and gets an automatic one-game sitdown.
    NBA.com can't even do their own research. Hilarious.

    Last night was Sheed's 14th, not his 15th. His last tech was rescinded by the league.

    I would hope someone who works for the league itself could at least stay informed.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    How in the world is Boston ahead of two teams? They've lost, I think, 19 out of 20 or something close.

    They have the worst record in the league, and had a HUGE losing streak. They're playing horrible.

    I agree.


    And man has this trip to Toronto turned into a gut check. Time to find out where the new version of the Pacers really stand. Beat an East playoff team on the road like you did in Detroit prior to the deal. That says a lot more than a double OT win over MIL, even if they aren't 30th.
