Our NBA Power Rankings are updated weekly so that basketball fans and gambling enthusiasts can see how teams are performing in a more focused span of time. Is one team’s overall record disappointing? They might be on absolute fire over the past four days.
Every week our experts use analytics to compare all thrifty NBA teams to update this list, called the NBA Power Rankings. Visit here, every Monday in time for your weekly wagers!
Week 12 Highlights
Time must fly when you are having fun because we are now at the halfway point of the NBA season. The disparity between the top of the league and the bottom of the league continues to grow, as there is still no team within two games of a .500 record.
The Orlando Magic haven’t been on a heater, but they’ve finally separated themselves from the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference by a full five games. On a different note, the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs are trading blows in the battle for eighth in the West.
The Brooklyn Nets didn’t set the world alight last week where they had the easiest schedule in the league, but Kyrie Irving is back and seemingly on a mission.
The playoff race continues to heat up. As the season started in favor of the Eastern Conference, the West has finally caught back up and taken the lead in the interconference series now 117-95.
Teams of the Week
Utah Jazz (4-0): The Jazz are firing on all cylinders, going 4-0 last week to push their overall win streak to nine straight.
Golden State Warriors (0-4): The Golden State Warriors faced two top-tier teams, and two bottom-tier teams last week. They failed all the tests before them.

2019 NBA Power Rankings – Week 13
(#1) Milwaukee Bucks (35-6)
|Pace: 104.9 (1)||ORtg: 113.4 (3)||DRtg: 101.6 (1)||NetRtg: +111.7 (1)|
The best from The Greek Freak:
37 PTS | 9 REB | 4 AST | 71% FG | 22 MIN. pic.twitter.com/ytda1KoR2H
— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) January 15, 2020
The Milwaukee Bucks are on pace to win a whopping 70 games this season. Not only are they motivated by the incredible performance of Giannis Antetokounmpo all season, but their defense is also nothing to joke about.
The Bucks have the top defensive rating in the league, as well as the best defensive field-goal percentage allowed in the restricted area. Allowing only a 54% conversion rate at the rim, their closest competition is their rivals the Toronto Raptors who sport a 57% allowed conversion rate at the rim.
Milwaukee are lucky to have an incredibly easy January schedule. They only play two matches in the month against teams with plus-.500 records and one of them will be this week.
(#2) Los Angeles Lakers (32-7)
|Pace: 100.4 (15)||ORtg: 112.7 (4)||DRtg: 104.5 (4)||NetRtg: +8.1 (2)|
— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 14, 2020
The Los Angeles Lakers were very worried last week when both LeBron James and Anthony Davis had to sit out of their match on Saturday evening. Such is the beauty of a veteran roster though, their shorthanded match against the Thunder became an easy-win.
The oft-trade mentioned Kyle Kuzma and critical darling Rajon Rondo put up their performances of the season to contribute 57 points in their win. Their bench was also brilliant, as Los Angeles received double-digit contributions from Dwight Howard, Quinn Cook, Troy Daniels, and Alex Caruso.
Contrary to their usual pace, the Los Angeles Lakers have been running teams out of the gym. They’ve more than doubled their last three opponents in fast-break points, while also converting on 63% of attempts within the first five seconds of the shot-clock. Could they look scarier?
(#3) Utah Jazz (27-12)
|Pace: 99.6 (21)||ORtg: 110.1 (11)||DRtg: 106.1 (8)||NetRtg: +4.0 (8)|
— Utah Jazz (@utahjazz) January 15, 2020
Donovan Mitchell was missing in their match against the Washington Wizards, but it was no issue for the Western conference power as they extended their winning streak to nine straight matches.
After a sluggish start, Joe Ingles has come on for the Utah Jazz and now finds himself shooting 51% as a member of the starting five. His playmaking has also been brilliant, owning 38 assists to only four turnovers in the month of January.
To make matters better for the Jazz, their last loss was to an impressive Miami Heat squad who pushed them to lose by a mere three points on the road. Utah has the added benefit of their next three coming against sub-.500 teams.
(#4) Boston Celtics (26-11)
|Pace: 99.6 (18)||ORtg: 111.5 (5)||DRtg: 104.5 (3)||NetRtg: +7.0 (3)|
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) January 14, 2020
The Boston Celtics have finally been blessed with some good health at this point in the NBA season. Unfortunately for them, it has coincided with their worst run of form of the season. A three-game losing streak sees them drop in the rankings.
Jayson Tatum scored a career-high 41 points against the New Orlean Pelicans, despite the fact that the Pels were lacking three starters. His 16-22 shooting performance on the night was incredibly impressive.
Despite Brad Stevens’ desired method of play, the Celtics are not moving the ball as much as they’d like. The ball is sticking, and they are averaging only 271 passes per 24 minutes. They must re-find their rhythm.
(#5) Houston Rockets (26-12)
|Pace: 104.2 (2)||ORtg: 113.7 (2)||DRtg: 108.6 (16)||NetRtg: +5.1 (7)|
TUFF 😤 pic.twitter.com/nOGmzSo7WA
— Houston Rockets (@HoustonRockets) January 15, 2020
To nobody’s surprise, the Houston Rockets are scoring extremely efficiently as Russell Westbrook has improved his shot selection. Westbrook is shooting over 50% in nine of his matches played this year, giving positive results.
Amazingly, the Houston Rockets are still struggling with a number of injuries. Nene and Gerald Green aren’t expected back for a while and Clint Capela is dealing with a heel issue. Despite that, the greatness of Harden is leading them to victory.
The Rockets will have a four-game homestead that starts on Wednesday, to offer them a bit of reprieve. They will meet the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time this season and take on former point guard Chris Paul by the end of the week.
(#6) Denver Nuggets (27-12)
|Pace: 97.5 (29)||ORtg: 111.0 (7)||DRtg: 107.1 (12)||NetRtg: +4.0 (9)|
The Denver Nuggets are a curious team. They struggled against two of the NBA’s weakest defenses in Washington and Cleveland, but are still taking wins due to late, gritty play.
Since the holidays, the Nuggets are the second-worst defensive team in the NBA. In a six-game stretch, the Nuggets allowed their opponents to shoot over 50% from the field five times.
Despite some negative runs in play, the Nuggets still sit second in the Western Conference. Nikola Jokic continues to prove himself the best centre in the league, having shot 75% in go-ahead shots to give his team the lead or set up a tie in the last minute of the match.
(#7) Miami Heat (27-12)
|Pace: 99.0 (25)||ORtg: 110.9 (8)||DRtg: 107.5 (14)||NetRtg: +3.4 (10)|
Nice find and finish on the break! pic.twitter.com/mFI30bJ9v0
— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) January 12, 2020
Jimmy Butler continues to set the NBA world on fire, as he went face to face with TJ Warren in what could be an Eastern Conference first-round series with the Indiana Pacers. Hard-talk aside, the Miami Heat have some real issues that they need to manage.
While Miami have been brilliant at home, the Heat are now sub-.500 when they play on the road. While home needs to be a fortress, they are losing to teams above and below the .500 mark when they sit on the away end.
If Miami can find their defensive mentality again, they might be able to shoot their way back up the rankings. For now, they face a tough three-game stretch against the Thunder and Spurs twice.
(#8) LA Clippers (27-13)
|Pace: 103.3 (6)||ORtg: 111.5 (6)||DRtg: 105.8 (7)||NetRtg: +5.6 (5)|
It doesn’t look like health or load management will be in the favor of the LA Clippers for the remainder of the season. In their last four matches, one of the two has been missing in each.
The LA Clippers’ defense is nothing to boast about as of late. They continue to be late on rotations and miscommunicate on simple screens, enough to make Leonard dream of his old defensive outfit in Toronto.
The Clipper also struggled to put away the New York Knicks and the Golden State Warriors. Bottom-feeders, who lost to the Clippers by a combined 12 points. If the Clippers want to be considered top of the league again, they’ll need to improve on they 6-6 record against the top teams in the Western Conference.
(#9) Philadelphia 76ers (25-15)
|Pace: 99.6 (20)||ORtg: 109.1 (17)||DRtg: 105.8 (6)||NetRtg: +3.3 (11)|
Thank you. pic.twitter.com/2iXA4McKFw
— Philadelphia 76ers (@sixers) January 14, 2020
It seems that with every week that passes, the Philadelphia 76ers either soar or plummet in the power rankings. Such is the nature of the Eastern Conference, as a crucial few games separate second from sixth.
The Sixers continue to be brilliant at home. Much of their success is due to the performance of their starting five. Against the Oklahoma City Thunder, their starters shot 52% from the field and accounted for 89 of their 120 points.
Their bench is still lacking, but their performance in the absence of Joel Embiid has been admirable. Lacking their star, the Sixers seem to be coming together as a unit.
(#10) Oklahoma City Thunder (22-17)
|Pace: 99.3 (22)||ORtg: 108.5 (20)||DRtg: 107.1 (13)||NetRtg: +1.5 (13)|
Gone are the ideas of a tanking Oklahoma City Thunder team, in are the thoughts of a playoff-bound outfit. Chris Paul is leading his team to some brilliant victories with his young proteges Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Dennis Schroeder at his side.
If there is any weakness to the Oklahoma City Thunder, it is their play to open matches. First quarters are their bane, as they lose the first session by an average of 2.3 points per game. Not coincidentally, Paul, Schroeder, and Gilgeous-Alexander play their lowest amount of minutes together in that quarter.
Oklahoma have an up and down week as they face the Timberwolves, Raptors, and Trail Blazers. While they haven’t met the high of their post-Thanksgiving run, they can still separate themselves from the pack with a strong week and winnable week.
(#11) Toronto Raptors (25-14)
|Pace: 100.2 (16)||ORtg: 108.9 (18)||DRtg: 103.8 (2)||NetRtg: +5.1 (6)|
MA FUZZY MAN pic.twitter.com/prvI7YQlkk
— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) January 13, 2020
The Toronto Raptors lead the NBA in man-games lost due to injury. At a rate of 6.41 wins lost due to injury, no team in the league comes close to them. In that regard, their 25-14 record is astonishing.
On the other hand, the Toronto Raptors’ fatigue seems to finally be setting in. In all three of their matches last week, the Raptors forfeited their double-digit leads. While they overcame the Charlotte Hornets in overtime, losses to the Spurs and Blazers really hurt them.
(#12) Indiana Pacers (24-15)
|Pace: 99.1 (23)||ORtg: 109.8 (12)||DRtg: 106.7 (10)||NetRtg: +3.1 (12)|
Contrary to the style we usually see out of the Indiana Pacers, their previous two home games produced two of their worst defensive outings to date. While Malcolm Brogdon has been out for a significant period of time, they are also allowing teams to score 1.11 points per possession in each match he’s missed.
Their frontcourt has been a positive though, as Sabonis and Turner continue to command the paint. Aaron Holiday is a surprise contender for most improved this year, as he is leading the backup guard units 79 assists to just 18 turnovers.
(#13) Dallas Mavericks (24-15)
|Pace: 99.7 (17)||ORtg: 115.3 (1)||DRtg: 108.9 (17)||NetRtg: +6.4 (4)|
— Dallas Mavericks (@dallasmavs) January 15, 2020
Youthful exuberance can only carry you so far. The Dallas Mavericks were excellent offensively with Kristaps Porzingis out of the lineup. Luka Doncic was fantastic as well, averaging 30.6 points and 9.0 assists in that time. With support from Powell and Kleber, the Doncic-led pick and roll continues to be a dangerous weapon.
They’ve unfortunately not shown the same passion on the defensive side of the ball. Without Porzingis manning the rim, the Mavericks are allowing 114.6 points per 100 possessions.
(#14) Memphis Grizzlies (18-22)
|Pace: 103.7 (3)||ORtg: 109.1 (16)||DRtg: 111.5 (22)||NetRtg: -2.4 (20)|
The Memphis Grizzlies continue to surprise with Ja Morant at the helm. The point guard is running away with the Rookie of the Year trophy, as he has averaged more than 19 points and eight assists in his last eight matches.
Also coming on for the Grizzlies is 27-year-old Lithuanian pivot man Jonas Valanciunas. The center is having the season of his career and is putting up fantastic numbers in limited minutes per game. While the competition in their five-game win streak wasn’t the best, they were clinical in their finishing.
(#15) San Antonio Spurs (17-21)
|Pace: 101.4 (12)||ORtg: 110.7 (10)||DRtg: 111.5 (21)||NetRtg: -0.9 (26)|
No. 10 lit it up this week 🔋
— San Antonio Spurs (@spurs) January 13, 2020
The Spurs failed in their matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies that would’ve put them in playoff position over their rivals. They couldn’t stop the ball, allowing Memphis to score 22 points on the break and 25 second-chance opportunities.
On the plus side, Demar Derozan is rounding back into All-Star form. He is averaging 27 points per game on 63% shooting over his last 11. He was the driving force behind a 16-point comeback win over his former side the Toronto Raptors.
(#16) Orlando Magic (18-21)
|Pace: 98.6 (28)||ORtg: 104.8 (27)||DRtg: 104.9 (5)||NetRtg: -0.1 (14)|
There are two things that the Orlando Magic are good at – taking care of the basketball and stopping it from going into their rim. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any hope when it comes to putting it in the basket themselves.
Unfortunately for the Magic, when they do turn over the ball it is in clutch moments. Ranking 26th in the league in clutch minute turnover rate, the Magic must improve the way they execute their offense if they hope to take games late.
(#17) Brooklyn Nets (18-20)
|Pace: 102.5 (9)||ORtg: 105.5 (25)||DRtg: 106.8 (11)||NetRtg: -1.3 (17)|
— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) January 15, 2020
Kyrie Irving has finally returned to the lineup for the Brooklyn Nets and he looked incredible. In a win over a Trae Young-less Atlanta Hawks squad, Kyrie Irving put up 21 points on 10-11 shooting.
The Nets have their toughest stretch of games yet as they take on the Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks. It will be their toughest test of the year, but Brooklyn is finally looking like their healthiest.
(#18) Phoenix Suns (16-23)
|Pace: 102.4 (10)||ORtg: 109.7 (13)||DRtg: 110.5 (19)||NetRtg: -0.7 (15)|
The Phoenix Suns continue to own their up and down season. Devin Booker is on seven straight 30 points performances. With the improvement of Booker and the return of Ayton, the Suns may very well be looking like a buyers at the deadline and not sellers.
Speaking of Ayton, after starting with Baynes for a couple of games, he’s been sent back to the bench in favor of Saric and his shooting. Ayton is still averaging over 30 minutes per game since his return, to go along with 14.7 points and 11.1 rebounds.
(#19) New Orleans Pelicans (14-26)
|Pace: 103.2 (7)||ORtg: 108.6 (19)||DRtg: 112.7 (26)||NetRtg: -4.1 (24)|
ZO SWAGGER TRIPLE 🔥

— New Orleans Pelicans (@PelicansNBA) January 14, 2020
Since the holiday break, the New Orleans Pelicans have been producing one of the top ten offenses in the league. They even dished 30 assists in a game without Jrue Holiday on the court. It is all on the back of Brandon Ingram, who is a red hot 40$ from deep in January.
The Pelicans continue to struggle to protect the paint. Unsurprisingly they struggle most with Derrick Favors on the court, as opposed to athletic rookie Jaxson Hayes. Only the Bulls are allowing their opponents to shoot a better percentage at the rim.
(#20) Portland Trail Blazers (16-24)
|Pace: 101.5 (11)||ORtg: 109.5 (14)||DRtg: 111.8 (24)||NetRtg: -2.3 (19)|
The Portland Trail Blazers wake up in a new world every day. After coming back to defeat the Raptors after trailing by 14 points, they were blown out by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Their inconsistency comes with the territory when your defense is as weak as the Blazers’.
(#21) Chicago Bulls (14-26)
|Pace: 100.8 (14)||ORtg: 104.5 (28)||DRtg: 106.2 (9)||NetRtg: -1.9 (18)|
The Chicago Bulls put an end to their losing streak, but it didn’t come until they defeated the hobbled Detroit Pistons. Zach Lavine led the way for them, scoring 75 points between his two matches against the Pelicans and Pacers.
(#22) Minnesota Timberwolves (15-23)
|Pace: 103.7 (4)||ORtg: 105.8 (23)||DRtg: 108.5 (15)||NetRtg: -2.7 (23)|
🐯 GEAUX TIGERS 🐯 pic.twitter.com/NaEKf6awQF
— Timberwolves (@Timberwolves) January 14, 2020
Since Karl-Anthony Towns went down, the Timberwolves are doing their best to tread water in the incredibly competitive Western Conference. He’s missed 13 games and the T-Wolves are 5-8 in that time. They are getting by with a third-ranked defense since Towns joined the injured list.
(#23) Sacramento Kings (15-24)
|Pace: 98.7 (27)||ORtg: 106.7 (21)||DRtg: 109.1 (18)||NetRtg: -2.5 (21)|
Come the new year the Kings have reinvented themselves. After ranking last in the league in pace to open the season, the Kings are now leading the league in pace since the calendar turned to 2020. They’ll have a nice climb in competition as they face the Magic, Mavericks, and Jazz in that order.
(#24) Washington Wizards (13-26)
|Pace: 103.5 (5)||ORtg: 110.7 (9)||DRtg: 115.4 (30)||NetRtg: -4.7 ()|
The Wizards are finally coming back to health, but they are unlikely to make much of a difference in the grand scheme of their season. Ish Smith will finally get a break, as his spectacular run of play only last two games.
(#25) New York Knicks (11-29)
|Pace: 99.6 (19)||ORtg: 105.0 (26)||DRtg: 112.9 (28)||NetRtg: -7.9 (27)|
— NEW YORK KNICKS (@nyknicks) January 14, 2020
The New York Knicks’ defense is what failed them over the course of their five-game losing streak. While they looked promising since the appointment of Mike Miller, they were outscored 237-120 from deep last week. On the positive side, they scored a season-high 72 points in the paint against the Heat.
(#26) Charlotte Hornets (15-27)
|Pace: 97.1 (30)||ORtg: 106.0 (22)||DRtg: 112.9 (27)||NetRtg: -6.8 (26)|
The Hornets have played a shocking amount of games to this point in the season. Terry Rozier has been incredible in his first five games in January, averaging 27.4 points on 51% shooting. If only he could lead their defense as well, unlike in their overtime loss to the Toronto Raptors.
(#27) Cleveland Cavaliers (13-25)
|Pace: 98.9 (26)||ORtg: 105.7 (24)||DRtg: 113.9 (29)||NetRtg: -8.2 (28)|
The Cavaliers are leading the league in drama, but have also responded when it comes to their recent road trip. They took wins against the Detroit Pistons and the Denver Nuggets, aided by a career game bu Tristan Thompson who scored 35 points.
(#28) Detroit Pistons (14-26)
|Pace: 99.0 (24)||ORtg: 109.1 (15)||DRtg: 111.8 (23)||NetRtg: -2.7 (22)|
— Detroit Pistons (@DetroitPistons) January 14, 2020
With Blake Griffin out Derrick Rose has taken on the role of leader for the Pistons. He is averaging 24.2 points per game on 52% shooting in his last five matches. Despite coming off the bench, he is ranking in the top three in total points and assists of NBA reserves. Unfortunately, losses to the Cavs and Bulls show their shift over to tanking mode.
(#29) Atlanta Hawks (8-32)
|Pace: 103.1 (8)||ORtg: 103.0 (29)||DRtg: 112.6 (25)||NetRtg: -9.6 (30)|
Trae Young will likely be an All-Star this season, top five in points and assists per game. Unfortunately, the Hawks are one of the worst teams in the NBA. They score 16.6 points more per possession with Young on the court, but also allow 112.6 points per 100 possessions.
(#30) Golden State Warriors (9-32)
|Pace: 101.0 (13)||ORtg: 102.7 (30)||DRtg: 111.1 (20)||NetRtg: -8.3 (29)|
The Warriors are playing in 2020 with an eight-game losing streak. Only two players on the roster meet the league average in effective field-goal percentage. Thankfully, one of those players is D’Angelo Russell. They look more organized than ever before this season, but it doesn’t look to make a difference anytime soon.

Frequently Asked Questions
How are the NBA Power Rankings Calculated?
Over the course of an 82-game season, there are many factors that are diligently considered when our experts power rank all thirty NBA franchises each week.
Some of the factors include updated point spreads, the strength of schedule during that particular week, as well as recent trades and signings that might affect their roster and rotation in a given matchup.
WSN throws all of these factors into consideration and ranks teams accordingly, adjusting them each week when the inevitable change takes place.
What Role Do Injuries Play in the Power Rankings?
Injuries are the most unfortunate part of sports, where passionate athletes and competitors have put their bodies on the line for the sake of their teams’ success.
Depending on the value of a player, injuries will certainly affect the power ranking of a team. While one team may be on a hot trend, wins against a severely hobbled team are less rewarded in the rankings.
Do Trades and Free Agency Play Into a Team’s Power Ranking?
Whenever a team acquires new talent to their roster, it can certainly affect their power ranking.
Based on previous team composition, that can help or hurt a team’s chances going forward. We’re not surprised by blockbuster trades in today’s NBA, but that doesn’t mean it won’t shake the competitive landscape.
Roster movement during the regular season is more limited. However keep an eye on the February trade deadline and free agency deadline, as teams will be making their final moves to prep for the playoffs, or the NBA Draft.
How Does Schedule Affect a Team’s Power Ranking?
The schedule is one of the defining factors that go into a team’s success. Over an 82-game season, it is near impossible for a team to have the same consistency. Weeks of reprieve and hardship against opponents show team quality in high-pressure situations.
On the other hand, an 82-game season really helps to separate the strongest teams from those who are not at their level.
It may be frustrating to see some teams benefit from their schedule while others struggle, that is all taken into account by the experts who create the NBA Power Rankings.
What Measures of a Team Affects Their Power Ranking?
We are in an age of basketball where it seems like almost every team has a superstar. Their contributions and leadership, combined with team makeup and game plan, are summed up by a few key statistics.
- PACE: Pace Factor, the formula is 48 * ((Tm Poss + Opp Poss) / (2 * (Tm MP / 5))). Pace factor is an estimate of the number of possessions per 48 minutes by a team.
- ORtg: Offensive Rating, for players it is points produced per 100 possessions, while for teams it is points scored per 100 possessions.
- DRtg: Defensive Rating, for players and teams it is points allowed per 100 possessions.
- NetRtg: Net Rating, a stat to measure a team’s point differential per 100 possessions (offensive rating – defensive rating). On a player level, this statistic is the team’s point differential per 100 possessions while he is on the court.
Can Anyone Create Their Own NBA Rankings?
Absolutely! Power Rankings can vary depending on the factors that are taken into consideration.
Some rankings may consider defensive teams as more successful than offensive teams in a win. Perhaps a weaker team got an upset over a playoff-bound team, they may be rewarded differently.
Power Rankings are a fun and interactive way to engage the sports community in the trends of every NBA team. Our experts take into account the most overall factors in order to benefit the gambling experience of our players, in order to enhance the overall experience!
