NBA Power Rankings Update: The Orlando Magic Are Making a Push
Teams Ranked 30th to 21st
The bottom-four shuffles around a bit, while the Los Angeles Lakers continue their epic collapse.
|28||New York Knicks||14-58||25.7||27||-1|
|22||Los Angeles Lakers||31-40||45.2||21||-1|
The Cleveland Cavaliers have won two in a row, including one over our top-ranked team, the Milwaukee Bucks. It seems that's enough to get them out of dead last in our rankings -- at least for one week.
The New York Knicks have the worst record in the NBA since February 28th at 1-10, as well as the worst net rating over that span at -13.1. Their ability to stay out of last place in our rankings each and every week is actually kind of impressive.
The Los Angeles Lakers are bottoming out in epic fashion. Not that long ago, they were a team with playoff aspirations. Now, they're 10.5 games back of eighth place in the Western Conference and on the brink of elimination on the heels of a brutal 1-9 stretch.
