The Dubs reclaimed the top spot ( again, at just about the perfect time… ) as Milwaukee stumbled a little.  Those two teams have been trading the number one spot back and forth between them since I started publishing this years ranking.


Other than Atlanta and Memphis swapping places, and the Lakers continuing free fall, the bottom quarter of the list remains the same.


San Antonio remains an enigma; they continue to have better numbers then their win loss record alone would indicate.

Denver climbs up all the way up to #2 while last fortnight’s hottest team, the Rockets, come back down to earth a little.


    1. Hey Gail, great question!

      Our algorithm uses many evaluation criteria – winning percentage is import statistic but it is not the only one that we evaluate to create our rankings.
