NBA POWER RANKINGS: Where all 30 teams stand at the All-Star break
The West is mostly locked up, with the Warriors leading the way, the Spurs trailing, followed by the Rockets, Clippers, Jazz, Grizzlies, and Thunder. There is a race for eighth place to see who will be knocked in four games by the Warriors in April.
But out East, things get interesting. The Cavs are vulnerable, with Kevin Love and J.R. Smith out and LeBron James shouldering a worrisome workload.The Raptors just swung a deal to land Serge Ibaka to make things tighter. The second-place Celtics have chips to cash, and the Wizards have given the Cavs their toughest test of the season. Oh, and there are six teams within 4.5 games of each other jockeying for playoff position.
With the All-Star Break here and the season more than halfway over, take a look at where each team stands now.
