Spurs and Heat as reliable as ever in the early going. It's the Knicks, Grizzlies and Timberwolves who have been serving up a surprise.

6-1 - 1/6
Spurs still tricking us into believing they’re going to win title No. 5. One of these years, they might be right.

4-0 - 2/12
Carmelo Anthony succeeding without Amar’e Stoudemire. Maybe the Knicks finally have their solution.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

5-1 6 1/10
Rudy Gay says Grizzlies can be last year’s Thunder. So far, the man is looking like Nostradamus.

4

6-2 1 1/4
Defending champs not quite as crisp as they were last year. Read: Still good enough to win it all.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
5

6-2 7 1/12
Kevin Martin not as good as James Harden, but Martin scoring around 18 ppg off bench. That’s good enough when you start Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

4-3 2 4/18
Rajon Rondo again a legitimate MVP candidate. Again, he probably won’t win. Either way, Celtics coming along slowly.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

5-2 - 1/9
Jamal Crawford has been the difference-maker. On a team with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, that’s saying something.

3-4 3 3/21
The long-running Hollywood drama continues. But look out once everything settles. It’s likely to be among the most-watched shows of all time.

5-2 9 9/23
No Kevin Love. No Ricky Rubio. No major player at any position. Just a whole lot of teamwork and pieces that have meshed very well.

4-2 5 5/20
Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings make Bucks Must-See TV. Oh, and suddenly Central Division favorites.

3-2 3 5/17
Team of No. 2 options. That’s not an insult, either. Nets could go places.

4-3 8 8/22
Remember when the Sixers had Andrew Bynum? Actually, just need to stay afloat for another five weeks.

3-4 3 5/21
Not as impressive without Danny Granger. Can’t blame them, but have to find a way to survive.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

4-3 1 8/19
Bulls pretty much what we figured they’d be minus Derrick Rose -- a .500 (or slightly better) team.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

4-4 11 4/22
O.J. Mayo has been league’s most underrated story of early season. But Dirk Nowitzki had better hurry up and heal.

3-3 1 7/18
Have beaten the Thunder and Clippers. Already better than anyone expected.

3-2 4 13/29
Anthony Davis makes them matter. Someone should tell that to Eric Gordon.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

4-4 6 4/24
Among that group of Western Conference teams who have a chance to make some noise when it matters -- or could slip into basketball oblivion.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

4-4 4 13/23
Jazz fans learning all about life with Mo Williams as your starting point guard. Up one minute, down the next.

4-4 6 20/29
Shannon Brown for sixth man of year? So far, the first year of the post-Steve Nash era is every bit as good as the last.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

3-4 5 4/21
Talented enough to beat anyone. Now all Warriors need to do now is really believe it.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

3-4 16 6/26
James Harden has come back down to earth a little. That means everyone else needs to start overachieving.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

2-5 4 13/23
Lots of promise here, but Blazers need to find a way to convince LaMarcus Aldridge to get closer to the basket once in a while.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

2-5 2 22/30
Starters look great and Dion Waiters looks like gold. But man, that bench is killing ‘em.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

2-4 4 21/30
Not as atrocious as everyone assumed might be the case. Question now is, what can they get for J.J. Redick?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

2-3 1 17/30
Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and a few others making them loads of fun to watch. They’ll get wins at some point.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

2-5 2 21/29
When the biggest story is DeMarcus Cousins acting like a tough guy after the game and getting suspended … well, welcome to Kings basketball.

1-6 3 20/29
Raptors playing OK, and look like they have some promise. But just not winning. In this business, that’s the bottom line.

Can’t be judged until John Wall and Nene are back and completely healthy. Just had better hope they’re not too far out of it when that happens.

0-8 - 21/30
Worst start in franchise history. That dates back to Fort Wayne, Ind., and 1948. Or 13 years before Isiah Thomas was born.
