1

25-7 - 1/9
Who cares that their winning streak was finally snapped at 17? Clips are still most athletic and cohesive unit in league right now.

24-6 - 1/12
All that talent and they make their free throws. When Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are both clicking in same game, Thunder continue to prove they’re championship material.

21-8 - 1/4
Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade aren’t quite as great this season, but still very, very good. LeBron James better than ever. Read: Will be top two or three all season.

Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and teamwork. You’ve probably heard this story before. What choice do you have but to believe they could win it all again?

5

19-9 1 1/10
Not dominating like they were early in the season, mostly because of an inconsistent bench. But starters such as Rudy Gay and Zach Randolph still give Griz reason to believe.

21-10 2 2/12
Amar’e Stoudemire is back following October knee surgery. Pressure’s on, as Knicks were one of league’s best without him.

21-10 - 4/21
Can just bury you via 3-pointers, but are so much more than that. Basically, no reason to doubt these Warriors are for real.

20-10 - 7/18
Won 20 of first 30 games. Most suspected it’d be the other way around. Most obviously forgot how good Al Horford and Josh Smith can be.

18-13 2 5/21
Slowly returning to the contending team we expected them to be. Most impressively, Pacers doing it without the still-injured Danny Granger. Time to give ’em some credit.

18-15 3 4/24
Danilo Gallinari could be most worthy All-Star who doesn’t play in the game. Either way, Nuggets should be dangerous with loads of home dates approaching.

17-14 6 6/26
Playing so well it’s easy to think GM Daryl Morey will make another deal for a playoff push. If not, Rockets may get there, anyway.

16-13 3 8/19
Bending their knees, shuffling their feet, hustling and sharing the ball. Should be no surprise for Tom Thibodeau-coached team. And most nights, it works.

16-14 6 13/23
Put together a winning record after 30 games in the West. Best of all, Blazers should be better toward end of season. Who woulda thunk?

15-16 4 3/21
A lot better than they were earlier this season (thank you, Steve Nash). But still make too many mistakes in deciding moments for such a star-studded, veteran team.

15

16-13 3 5/20
Monta Ellis quietly having perhaps his best season. Quietly because few teams are more ignored than the Bucks. That could change by season’s end.

14-13 2 9/23
Ricky Rubio being preserved for possible late-season run. Question is, will Kevin Love be around to join him, or are occasional trade suggestions completely unfounded?

16-15 5 5/17
Coaching change a dubious decision with questionable timing. Doesn’t seem likely that Avery Johnson was the only problem.

18

14-16 3 4/18
Eventually, they’ll need a center. Or at the very least, for Jason Terry to be the player Celtics figured he was.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

15-17 1 8/22
Jrue Holiday having career season and Spencer Hawes not far behind. Wherefore art though, Andrew Bynum?

15-17 4 13/23
Not really going anywhere, so it probably wouldn’t hurt to shake things up. Lots of teams would give Jazz something for Paul Millsap, too.

21

13-19 1 4/22
O.J. Mayo, Chris Kaman, Darren Collison and now Dirk Nowitzki. Easy to start wondering if all the newness will ever come together.

12-19 1 21/30
Continue to battle even without Glen Davis. J.J. Redick, Jameer Nelson and forever-underrated Arron Afflalo are three big reasons why.

12-22 3 21/30
How long before Andre Drummond starts alongside Greg Monroe in frontcourt -- giving Pistons set of Twin Towers that makes good sense?

11-20 - 20/29
Playing much better with Jose Calderon as starting point guard. Time to start the Kyle Lowry trade rumors?

DeMarcus Cousins trade talk won’t go away. Lots of teams would love to have him. Probably time for Kings to make it happen.

Just kind of floating in basketball nowhere land, waiting for next season and another reason to get excited. Just aren’t any right now.

Eric Gordon is finally in uniform and immediately makes the Hornets better. But is he totally happy? If not, trade rumors may become a distraction.

7-25 - 22/30
Will take the right deal for Anderson Varejao, but don’t mind keeping him, either. Before and after they figure it out, Kyrie Irving will keep them worth watching.

8-23 2 17/30
Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist may be the only two ’Cats still here in three years. Until then, they’ll probably have to just keep playing the lottery and changing coaches.

4-25 - 20/30
Well, at least Bradley Beal has been playing better lately. But if that’s all you have to get excited about, you might want to consider starting over -- again.
