Unsurprisingly, the Houston Rockets are still No.1 in the NBA power standings for week 22. But what other teams moved around in the top 10 last week?
Week 22 is already in the rear-view mirror for the 2017-18 season. This year has absolutely flown by, and now there is about a month left until the end of the regular season.
The Rockets, Warriors and Pelicans had their lengthy winning streaks slashed last week. Now, the Blazers own the league’s longest streak with nine consecutive wins. The Raptors have the longest winning streak in the east at eight. Dwane Casey’s decision for the Raptors to play with more pace and take more 3’s has paid off.
The third seed and the 10th seed in the west are only separated by 3.5 games. An untimely losing streak from the third, fourth or fifth seeds could put them on the outside looking in come playoff time.
Without further ado, lets checkout the power rankings for the top 10 teams in the NBA for week 22.
