NBA 2012-13 Power Ranking (Week of November 19)
The New York Knicks finally lose a game and the Miami Heat are looking ahead to the playoffs. That means we have a new number 1 this week! Teams playing with a chip on their shoulder go a long way in these rankings…
After losing their opener the Grizzlies have rattled off seven wins in a row. Rudy Gay is playing like a stud and the front court is as tough as ever. Many had this team underachieving and being broke up by February. Take that NBA writers and bloggers!
2. Los Angeles Clippers
3. New York Knicks
They beat the San Antonio Spurs, but lost to the Grizzlies. Why not ranked higher? Still not a believer, but don’t worry, they will climb to the top if deserving. Please, no hate mail Knick fans.
4. Oklahoma City Thunder
5. Miami Heat
After leaving Boston, Ray Allen sounded like a scorned woman. We can now see why, Allen has a lot left in the tank and will be an integral part of this team. Now, if only Miami can keep their focus during the regular season.
6. San Antonio Spurs
You can’t lose to the New York Knicks at home and not drop a couple of spots. Again, please hold the hate mail Knick fans, it’s nothing personal.
7. Chicago Bulls
8. Brooklyn Nets
9. Milwaukee Bucks
10. Boston Celtics
The Lakers drop out of the top ten, but are number one in the “Drama” category. Still, until Steve Nash is healthy and able to run Mike D’Antoni’s “7 seconds or less” offense, this team is going to tread water with Steve Blake as the primary point guard.
DROPPED OUT: Minnesota Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers
