On Wednesday, we debuted the Rankers and Tankers, the five best, and five worst teams in the NBA.
Here are your Rankers so far through the NBA season:
- Golden State Warriors: (41-15) Have won 16-1 in their last 17 1st in West
- Milwaukee Bucks: (42-14) 8-2 last 10 1st place in East
- Toronto Raptors: (42-16) 7-3 in last 10 2nd place in East
- Oklahoma City Thunder: (37-19) 9-1 in last 10 3rd place in West
- Denver Nuggets: (38-18) 7-3 in last 10 2nd in West
- New York Knicks: (10-46) have lost 17 straight worst in NBA
- Phoenix Suns: (11-47) have lost 14 straight
- Cleveland Cavaliers: (12-45) 3-7 in their last 10
- Chicago Bulls: (13-44) 2-8 in their last 10
- New Orleans Pelicans: (25-33) 3-7 in last 10
I would put the Jazz just outside the top 5 in the league’s best teams, having won 14 of 18 going into the All-Star break. Unfortunately the Jazz biggest tests against Houston, Portland (2x) and Golden State all resulted in losses. However, the Jazz did beat the Nuggets in that stretch.
