NBA power ranking even if Damian Lillard is having a significant impact in Milwaukee, Anthony Edwards is playing at a breakneck speed in Minnesota. But where does their team stand this week?.. NBA Power ranking.

1. Timberwolves

To what extent has Anthony Edwards made a solid start? Through ten games, Edwards has accumulated 276 points, 60 rebounds, and 53 assists. Among the 22-year-old players, who else has ever accumulated such a set of figures? Michael Jordan with Luka Dončić.

2. Celtics

The Celtics aren’t the only winning teams. They’re hidden behind a covering. Boston’s scoring margin is now the highest in the NBA (+10.6) and is on track to be among the largest in league history, after suffering through victories over Toronto and Memphis the previous weekend and an upset defeat to Charlotte on Monday. In contrast, Jayson Tatum may bolster his MVP credentials with a 45-point margin in total plus/minus. Beantown, oh, what good times.

3. 76ers

Joel Embiid is averaging an NBA-high 31.9 points per game and pulling down 11.2 rebounds per game. And now he’s penning plays? His career-high 6.2 assists per game are seen by Ebriid’s Sixers teammates as a conscious effort to act more of a facilitator. “He’s not worried about scoring 50 every night,” stated Daniel House Jr. He wants to win.

4. Bucks

The Bucks are 10-2 overall when Damian Lillard starts, and he has helped them win eight of the last nine games. Even better, Lillard is starting to get hotter from three points beyond the arc. He has hit at least 36% of his threes and cracked 50% twice in the last four games.

5. Thunder

There is thunder. Though Shai Gorgeous-Alexander is leading the league in steals and has improved upon his efficiency numbers from the previous All-NBA season, Chet Holmgren is getting a lot of credit for his outstanding start. Oklahoma City’s top-five defense and the NBA’s most accurate three-point shooting squad make them unbeatable.

6. Nuggets

In Monday’s victory over Detroit, Michael Malone and Nikola Jokic were both benched in the first half, presumably as a result of their growing annoyance after a 1-3 run. With his fourth straight game in double figures (15 points versus Detroit), Christian Braun has started to show signs of progress. Jamal Murray is not playing for the Nuggets.

7. Heat v

Jaime Jaquez Jr. was a rookie who was ready for the NBA when he was drafted by the Heat, and he still is. In less than 25 minutes each game, Jacquez averages 9.6 points while shooting 35.7% from three point range. Erik Spoelstra has also come to trust him, as he has amassed the highest fourth-quarter average (8.4 minutes per game) among rookies on a playoff contender.

8. Mavericks

Are the Mavericks back on Earth now? Dallas’s relatively easy early-season schedule helped them get out to a 9-3 start. However, the Mavericks’ back-to-back defeats to Milwaukee and Sacramento exposed their defensive flaws. issues that Dallas may not have the personnel to handle. The two games we’re going to Los Angeles for this week will be educational.

9. Kings

Even if New Orleans struggled against Sacramento on Monday, the team’s 3-1 road trip—which included wins against the Lakers and Mavericks—is something to be proud of. Thanks to his relentless attack on the rim, DE “Aaron Fox” is among the top 10 this season in both drives to the basket and points scored off of drives.

10. Lakers

Do you want a strange statistic? NBA.com reports that this season, Christian Wood (+7.6) is leading the Lakers in on-court net rating and behind LeBron James (+23.8) by a narrow margin in on/off differential (+16.2). The fact that the Lakers’ net rating (+0.1) is statistically greater when Anthony Davis is not playing than when he is (-2.6) makes the situation even more peculiar. With his left adductor injury, Davis may have to deal with this issue for the whole season.

11. Magic

Is Orlando’s defense the strongest in the NBA? The Magic are tied with Minnesota for the highest defensive rating in the NBA and force an NBA-high 17.2 turnovers per game. Orlando doesn’t allow offensive rebounds and restricts opponents to a league-low 21.8 assists per game. The NBA’s 25th-ranked offense must now provide more for the Magic.

12. Suns

Phoenix must be extremely concerned about Bradley Beal’s back problem, which has limited him to three games this season and likely keep him out until at least the end of the month. Devin Booker has picked up the load since returning to action last week, increasing his scoring and averaging just under 10 assists per game.

13. Pacers

Despite their wins over Milwaukee and Philadelphia the previous week, the Pacers’ Sunday setback to Orlando served as a reminder that they still need to strengthen their defense. Think about Obi Toppin. Toppin, who was acquired from the Knicks for practically nothing, finished with a field goal % in the top 10 in the league and scored 27 points against the 76ers.

14. Cavs

Raise your hand if you knew who Craig Porter Jr. was before to the start of the season. That was my thought. Porter Jr., who scored 21 points in a surprising victory against Denver on Sunday, entered Cleveland’s injury-ravaged backcourt and offered much-needed depth at backup point guard. Not bad for a 23-year-old rookie with a two-way deal.

15. Knicks

After spending $50 million over four years, Donte Vincenzo finally paid off for the Knicks last summer when he scored 39 points in back-to-back wins over Washington and Charlotte. Undoubtedly, New York’s offense requires all the support it can receive.

16. Rockets

received some criticism this week for suggesting that Allergen Engine is a reliable three-point shooter rather than a problem like to Nikola Jokic. It’s not, however, a ridiculous competition. Songun is a deep bag offensive player, a willing and improving passer, and an excellent rebounder on the defensive boards. Analyze Joke’s stats from his third year. Songuns are comparable. superior in particular categories. And no, he is 21.

17. Pelicans

On Monday, Jose Alvarado made his way back into the starting lineup as the Pelicans easily defeated Sacramento. The Pals held DE Aaron Fox to just 14 points in that contest, and over the previous five games, New Orleans has had a top-five defensive rating.

18. Clippers

Ty Lue was probably motivated to say that he wants James Harden to be James Harden after seeing how the Clippers defeated San Antonio in the first quarter, as Harden efficiently spread the floor and assisted on five of the team’s first eleven points. For the Clippers, Terrance Mann has to start playing right away. Mann was scoreless against the Spurs and has just one point in his last three outings.

19. Hawks

The Hawks are now 1-3 overall; their lone win in their last four games came against Detroit. Once again, the Hawks defense (ranked 24th) is a total shambles, while Atlanta’s offense (ranked sixth in efficiency) is quite potent. Atlanta had high hopes for their first full season under Quin Snyder, but so far, it appears to be more of the same.

20. Warriors

Warriors win! The Warriors win! I’m going to embrace my inner Michael Kay (you know, New Yorkers), and I’m going to proclaim that Golden State’s six-game losing run is ended thanks to the Dubs’ victory over a weary Rockets team. Klay Thompson (20 points) looked really well in that game; the Warriors are hoping that this can spark Thompson, whose shooting numbers are at an all-time low.

21. Raptors

Doesn’t it seem like a lifetime ago—that season-opening win over Minnesota? The Raptors have struggled to score this season, especially in the half court, despite outscoring Detroit by 142 points (does anybody really knock the shit out of Detroit?). Original The resurgence of annuities ought to help. Annoy is making 37.1% of his threes this season.

22. Nets

Lonnie Walker IV is making a compelling case for the Sixth Man award and leads all scorers who played fewer than 25 minutes per game. Off the bench, he averages 16.6 points. But what’s hurting Brooklyn is that their defensive rating (115.3) is worse than Detroit’s.

23. Hornets

Since coming back from suspension, Miles Bridges has scored ten or more goals in each of his last three games. He scored 14 points and pulled down 15 rebounds in Charlotte’s win over Boston on Monday. Furthermore, Steve Clifford isn’t reintroducing him to the team piece by piece: Bridges’ job against the Celtics was to play 45 minutes.

24. Bulls

Zach LaVine, the problematic guard for the Bulls, attempted just 19 shots altogether in the two games he played against Miami after attempting 20 shots on Friday against Orlando. Interesting. Alex Caruso, the man everyone is trying to trade for, is hitting up to 50% of his threes.

25. Jazz

Keynote George performs admirably. In just 13 games, Utah’s rookie point guard has racked up an astounding 70 assists. Since entering the starting lineup, George has averaging 10.2 points and 8.8 assists in 30.0 minutes. Landing a mid-first-round pick is important, people.

26. Grizzlies

A 2-2 week that featured a win against the Clippers offered some hope to Memphis, which is currently without Marcus Smart due to injuries. Santi Aldana has made a career-high 37.5% of his three-pointers and given the Graz some variation in the frontcourt as a result of an extended role.

27. Blazers

On the one hand, DeAndre Ayton is collecting rebounds and playing strong inside defense. But this season, he has only attempted nine free throws! His scoring production has decreased, and his shooting percentage is still enigmatic.

28. Spurs

In the NBA, the Spurs are only lagging behind Denver and Indiana in terms of assists. On the other hand, it seems like Victor Wembanyama would benefit from playing with a traditional point guard.

29. Wizards

Jordan Poole has had a dismal start to the shooting season. Furthermore, Poole’s percentage of made threes (28.4%) and shot percentage (39.6%) is at an all-time low, matching his rookie season. Poole’s leading man debut has not gone well, despite the support of his teammates.

30. Pistons

Fascinating fact: The Pistons have chosen six players in the top seven in the draft since 2018. Funny fact: Detroit is now on a 12-game losing run and their offense is incapable of scoring on anyone. Cade Cunningham said, “We’re not good.”
