NBA Power 10 (3/15-3/21)

Ab Stanley

Last week in the NBA provided some tough games and wild finishes. It’s starting to feel like a playoff game every time a couple of top teams hit the floor. Which one of these teams are headed in the right direction?


1. Milwaukee Bucks (50-19)

Milwaukee had one loss in an overtime thriller and even in that game they looked like the favorite to win the championship.


2. Denver Nuggets (46-23)

Denver has a 4.5 game lead in the west with about 14 games left to play.They’re gonna need Jamal Murray and (the newly acquired) Reggie Jackson to get healthy.


3. Boston Celtics (47-22)

After a tough three game stretch, Boston got back on track winning, two out of their last three. The one loss was to Houston, which wasn’t a good showing by the Celtics at all.


4. Philadelphia 76ers (45-22)

The 76ers have pushed their win streak up to six games. They’re averaging 125.8 points per game during that stretch.


5. Cleveland Cavaliers (44-27)

The Cavs will head out on a tough two game road trip with games against the Philadelphia 76ers and Washington Wizards. They’ll follow that up with a two game home stand against Brooklyn.


6. New York Knicks (41-30)

Julius Randle has pushed his average up to 25.3 points per game and he’s shooting just under 46% on the season.


7. Golden State Warriors (36-33)

The Warriors have won two out of their last three, including that epic game versus Milwaukee on Saturday night.


8. Phoenix Suns (37-32)

Phoenix has lost two in a row, allowing 125.5 points per game. Their season average in points allowed per game is 111.3 (68 games).


9. Sacramento Kings (40-27)

The Kings went 2-1 versus New Orleans, New York and Phoenix, respectively. Their next three opponents should be a bit easier to handle.


10. Memphis Grizzlies (41-26)

Memphis has won three games in a row after snapping a three game losing streak. They’ll have to keep this momentum up, as they continue to play games without Ja Morant.


Player Of The Week: Trae Young- Atlanta Hawks


Young has averaged 34.6 points per game in his last three games. That includes a 35 point (13 assist) game versus Boston agdca 41 point game against Minnesota.
