| NBA Power Rankings

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. Updated regularly during the regular season, InsideHoops.com's NBA power rankings focus on the big, season-long picture.

2013 NBA POWER RANKINGS
Updated October. 22, 2013

NBA Power Rankings 1 Miami Heat 66-16 The champions remain championship-level

2 San Antonio Spurs 58-24 The Spurs always do better than expected

3 Los Angeles Clippers 56-26 Doc Rivers may help these guys rise

4 Indiana Pacers 49-32 Very good last year, got deeper this year

5 Chicago Bulls 45-37 The world watches Derrick Rose's return.

6 Oklahoma City Thunder 60-22 Russell Westbrook is still healing, and OKC's bench is weaker this year

7 Memphis Grizzlies 56-26 Rugged team brings back their key parts, plus Mike Miller's shot is back in town

8 Brooklyn Nets 49-33 Loaded team but will the sum of the parts meet expectations?

9 Houston Rockets 45-37 Welcome to Houston, Dwight Howard

10 Golden State Warriors 47-35 Andre Iguodala is a solid addition. Can Andrew Bogut stay healthy?

11 New York Knicks 54-28 Carmelo Anthony is a star, but Amare Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani are question marks.

12 Denver Nuggets 57-25 Nuggets got weaker. Still solid, especially with that home court "air" advantage.

13 Minnesota Timberwolves 31-51 If they stay healthy, Wolves should be respectable.

14 Portland Trail Blazers 33-49 It's all about Damian Lillard, Nic Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge.

15 Detroit Pistons 29-53 Some talented yet flawed additions this summer, plus young talent = worth watching.

16 New Orleans Pelicans 27-56 Fun roster looks worth watching.

17 Atlanta Hawks 45-38 Hawks are sort of stuff in limbo. Not sure what direction they'll head in the coming months.

18 Los Angeles Lakers 45-37 Pau Gasol, old hurting Kobe Bryant, and limited support. Not much upside.

19 Cleveland Cavaliers 24-58 Kyrie Irving is terrific. Unclear how good/great Anthony Bennett will be.

20 Dallas Mavericks 41-41 The Mavs scrambled this summer to make sure their team is watchable.

21 Toronto Raptors 34-48 Good coach but team has lots of missing parts.

22 Washington Wizards 29-53 Fun backcourt, but limited talent up front and on the bench.

23 Boston Celtics 41-40 The Celtics are built to lose, but compete. Will Rajon Rondo eventually be traded?

24 Milwaukee Bucks 38-44 This is a rebuilding team.

25 Sacramento Kings 28-54 The team got to stay in Sacramento. That's the big win here.

26 Utah Jazz 43-39 These aren't your John Stockton, Karl Malone Jazz.

27 Charlotte Bobcats 21-61 Al Jefferson, an OK backcourt, and filler

29 Phoenix Suns 25-57 There's just not a lot happening here

28 Orlando Magic 20-62 A talented rookie, and question marks

30 Philadelphia 76ers 34-48 Hopefully the young players at least fast-break a lot and make these guys fun
