PBT Extra: Breaking down the NBA Power Rankings top 10 with Denver on top


When putting together this week’s NBC NBA Power Rankings — actually, the past few weeks of power rankings — it’s been clear there is very little separation between the top five teams. Usually, at this point in season, a team or two (or, three) has separated themselves from the pack. While the Warriors may ultimately get healthy and do just that, as of right now the top slot goes to the hottest team that past couple of weeks.

Right now that’s the Denver Nuggets.

Which is why the Nuggets top this weeks Power Rankings. They just won on the road against Raptors, Warriors, Trail Blazers, and Timberwolves — that’s impressive. Nikola Jokic is playing at an All-NBA level but getting real help from Jamal Murray, Paul Millsap, and others.
