NBA Playoff Power Rankings

With just eight teams left, I wanted to throw out how I would rank them in order of best to not so best.  Each round, depending on how teams do, I’ll re-rank based on performance.  After the first round, this is where I would put all eight teams.

1. San Antonio Spurs-  Top seed in the West and made easy work of the Utah Jazz

2. Oklahoma City Thunder-  Defeated the defending champs, Mavericks, in a sweep

3.  Miami Heat- Other than one game, no problems with the New York Knicks

4.  Indiana Pacers-  Lost the first game, but then won the next four to get the series win

5.  Boston Celtics-  Little bit of trouble with Atlanta, but still got the job done in 6 games

6.  Philadelphia 76ers-  Beat a Derrick Rose-less Bulls team, but beat them none the less

7.  Los Angeles Clippers/Lakers-  Both LA teams got in a best of seven that lasted seven games, and did just enough to get the series wins
