    JR is getting back in the flow. he'll be fine for the playoffs.

    huge gm in BOS coming up. would be nice to secure homecourt.

    GS showing their utter lack of class yet again. what a bunch of crybaby wankers that lot is.

    Yeah JR "Swish" seemed hot against Indiana.

    I still don't know much but I like the Celtics team.

    Getting close to playoff time.

    GS loses Durant for over a month, go 13-5, to retain first place. Impressive.

    Say what you want about GS being emotional, but check out this argument between LeBron and Thompson, yesterday.

    13-5 is great? west is overrated...

    lebron is just getting his troops in order. thompson hasnt played D for months. he deserves to have his ass chewed out.

    AO, cant help myself because GS is the least likable team in the lg despite playing the most fun to watch brand of basketball. go figure that out

    The FRT of sport..... lamentable.

    Read this and weep. Cav's now rated 6th best. You really are a sore sport mate.

    NBA Power Rankings - Marc Stein's Week 24 rankings

    1. Golden State Warriors
    2016-17 record: 63-14
    Previous ranking: 1

    Steve Kerr never expected that resting his stars for one night in San Antonio would lead to an 11-game winning streak that all but clinches home-court advantage for the Warriors throughout the playoffs. But Stephen Curry acknowledged last week that he benefited from the one-night break mentally as much as anything; Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green have all played their best ball of the season since the night to spark this run. The Warriors sport the league's best offensive and defensive efficiency ratings over the course of the streak (115.2 points scored per 100 possessions; 97.0 points allowed per 100 possessions). And Golden State's next victory will break a tie with Michael Jordan's Bulls (second three-peat) for the most regular-season W's (204) over any three-season span in league history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, while also matching the club's longest winning streak (12) of the season to date (Nov. 7-28). Curry is up to 302 3-pointers for the season, Green has hiked his career record to 19-0 when recording a triple-double and, as a bonus, Golden State has registered 18 games with 10 or more blocked shots after all the fretting about how little rim protection it has. The Knicks are the next closest with just seven such games.

    Now lets look at the Cavs.

    6. Cleveland Cavaliers
    2016-17 record: 49-27
    Previous ranking: 7

    At the end of February, ESPN's Basketball Power Index rated the Cavs' chances of clinching the No. 1 seed in the East at 89 percent. Coming out of March, that figure was down to (yikes) 53 percent. The Cavs' 7-10 record in March saddled LeBron James with his first month to feature a double-digit loss total since his first full month in the NBA, when Cleveland went 4-11 in 2003. The malaise runs even if deeper if you rewind to the morning of Jan. 10, when Cleveland led Boston by a whopping 5 games. Since then? LeBron & Co. are 21-19. And going to double overtime Sunday night to turn back Indiana was obviously the last thing the Cavs needed, right at the start of a three-games-in-four-nights stretch that will end with a visit to Boston. The playoffs can't get here soon enough for the champs, who will need to reset even if they find a way to dig out the East's top seed. A ray of hope: Since 2011, when he made his first of six successive trips to the NBA Finals, James' teams have lost only two first-round games in 18 outings. So there's that.


    5555555555 countdown to the playoffs... Oh yeah, can you explain why the Warriors are the most watched team on the road? Selling out most every game they play on the road. Perhaps its just you and a few of your friends who are "Warrior Haters"

    ya, that response doesnt really work. you think peeps like the warriors these days? think again...

    oh no!#!#! not reg sea power rankings! omg whatever shall i do!

    the reg sea is beyond boring for me and the players. you think anyone on the cavs gives one iota about reg sea records? in 10 yrs will anyone even remember what happened last sea with the warriors since they choked? in the reg sea curry can get away with showboating all he wants. green can punch and kick and act like a complete stooge every gm. come the playoffs, however, steph will be throwing flash passes out of bounds to lose gms while green kicks people in the head and gets suspended.

    the real gms begin soon. we shall see how well mr. chokemaster no.2 durant combines his powers with mr. chokemaster no.1 curry when teams play D and stuff and actually try all gm. what excuses will the media darling curry have this yr? in no particular order:

    1. PMS
    2. hang nail
    3. sore gums from all that chewing
    4. too busy working on his wannabe thug voice

    Winning 72% of your games, after losing your best player to injury, is great actually.

    Another thing about 72% ... its better than the winning percentage of all Eastern conference teams.

    Golden State Warriors won the Western Division of the NBA today. In doing so they won their 65th game of the year. The first team in NBA history to win 65 games 3 years in a row. It was their 13th straight win.

    3 games at home to finish the season. Durant returns in Saturday nights game.

    The regular season does mean something. We have home court advantage throughout the playoffs. One more home game in each series.

    DUBS!!!

    Kudos to your Warriors, AO. Yes, home-court helps.

    I watched part of the Celtics v. Cavs game.

    Don't know who will come out on top out of the top Eastern teams for Champsionship.

    Last year, the semis were GSW-OKC, and CLE-TOR. The 1 and 3 seeds from the west, and the 1 and 2 seeds from the east.

    So, the regular season last year was a good indicator.

    both conferences are top heavy. so no surprise there. only about 4 teams have a shot of winning the title any given season. everyone knows this. the reg sea could be shortened to 30 gms and the result would be the same.

    Football, american football, hoops, hockey, baseball, etc .... they could all cut their number of games in half. Tis modern sports ... $$$.

    Though I shudder to think what would be on TV, if sports were cut in half. More game shows? More "news"? More fiction of various types? I still regularly enjoy watching a game, just for the game itself, the skill/athleticism, the in-game strategy, the crowd scenes, etc.
