The Celtics and Hornets mounted impressive weeks and landed in the top 10 of this week's NBA Power Rankings.
Alright, the Warriors lost. Let’s get on with the season.
It probably won’t be quite that easy to focus your attention elsewhere as Golden State’s historic season rolls on, but perhaps we can give a little more love to what’s going on around the league.
With the omnipresent streak over, take the time to check out stifling San Antonio, healthy Cleveland, or surging Oklahoma City and Toronto. The Celtics and Hornets have crashed the East’s upper tier as the Pacers, Heat and Bulls tread water, creating a murky, intriguing landscape. Meanwhile, the rest of the West is a gigantic mess. When someone tries to make a point about abolishing conference-based seeding, remember these things go in cycles.
But anyway, in case you’re tired of hearing about the soon-to-be 81–1 Warriors, we ranked the other 29 teams again this week, just for fun.
