PBT Extra: Breaking down Cavaliers lead, Lakers leap in PBT power rankings


The ProBasketballTalk Power Rankings came out Monday, and the top of the board has some familiar teams.

Of course, Cleveland is on top — they were the NBA’s only undefeated team at the start of the week — but the Clippers climbed to second based the best defense in the league through the first couple weeks (plus the fact Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are very good at basketball).

The biggest climber — the Lakers. Who are shockingly entertaining and are having fun in a post-Kobe/Byron Scott world.
