NBA power rankings, rating the entire league from top to bottom. Our NBA power rankings are based mostly on how good teams really are, with recent performances taken into partial consideration.

2014 NBA POWER RANKINGS
Updated December 16, 2014

NBA Power Rankings 1) Golden State (21-3) - On serious role this season. Finally lost while short-handed to Grizzlies

2) Memphis (20-4) - Rough, rugged and raw

3) Houston (18-5) - Kept winning through multiple key injuries. Good defense here now.

NBA Power Rankings 4) San Antonio (17-8) - Key players take days off for rest. Just focused on the postseason.

5) Portland (19-6) - Same as before

6) LA Clippers (17-7) - The usual.

NBA Power Rankings 7) Dallas (18-8) - Tyson Chandler seems reborn after his time on the KNicks.

8) Toronto (19-6) - Best of a super-weak East, though need DeMar DeRozan back

9) Washington (18-6) - More legit this year, especially by East standards

NBA Power Rankings 10) Oklahoma City (12-13) - Very alive now that their stars are back on the court.

11) Chicago (15-9) - Not defending like they used to.

12) Atlanta (17-7) - The Hawks are good. Going to have to accept this.

NBA Power Rankings 13) Cleveland (14-9) - They're starting to come together. But the defense still needs major improvement.

14) Milwaukee (13-12) - Just lost Jabari Parker for the season. A tragedy.

15) New Orleans (12-12) - Anthony Davis, but not enough else.

NBA Power Rankings 16) Miami (12-13) - Too experienced not to at least be decent.

17) Phoenix (12-14) - Still adjusting to offseason additions.

18) Sacramento (11-14) - Overachieved a bit, then DeMarcus Cousins got hurt, losses came, and coach Malone was fired

NBA Power Rankings 19) Brooklyn (10-13) - Just not much upside here. Plodding along.

20) Denver (10-14) - Hot for a while, now cold again.

21) Orlando (10-17) - Too young to seriously compete.

NBA Power Rankings 22) Boston (8-14) - Rebuilding phase.

23) Indiana (8-17) - Lance Stephenson gone, Paul George hurt, not enough else here

NBA Power Rankings 24) LA Lakers (8-17) - Kobe Bryant is proud.

25) Charlotte (6-18) - Where'd their defensive ability go?

26) Utah (6-19) - Thought they'd be a little bit better than this.

27) Minnesota (5-19) - So many injuries.

28) Detroit (5-20) - Chemistry disaster.

29) New York (5-22) - Team is in transition and focused on future free agency, but this is still a big disappointment

30) Philadelphia (2-22) - No chance of being competitive this season
