NBA Power Rankings: Fearsome Celtics still on top, but Cavs creeping up; Warriors starting to look like champs

1

Celtics

The Celtics ran their winning streak to nine games by beating the Pelicans on the road before losing to the Bulls on Monday night. They bounced back quickly, however, to handily defeat the Mavs on national TV on Wednesday, as Jayson Tatum went off for 37 points, 13 rebounds and five assists. Boston now has the best offensive rating in NBA history, so yeah, safe to say things are clicking on that end. The scary part is that they’re 17th in defense, which we know won’t be the case as the season progresses and Robert Williams potentially returns to the lineup. Marcus Smart praised Jaylen Brown on Wednesday night, saying he’s an MVP-caliber player, along with Tatum, when he’s at his best. This team is a juggernaut, plain and simple.

14-4

Cavaliers

After a brief skid, the Cavs are back to their winning ways, rattling off four straight this week against the Hornets, Heat, Hawks and Blazers. Last week JB Bickerstaff called out the defense, and the Cavs responded by allowing just 102 points per 100 possessions this week, while scoring 118.8. Darius Garland and Donovan Mitchell each averaged over 27 points per game and shot over 40 percent from the 3-point line, while Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley both averaged a double-double. Cedi Osman had two big games off the bench, putting up 21.5 points per game against Miami and Atlanta.
