NBA Power Rankings: LeBron James, Cavaliers' Free Fall Continues

NBA Power Rankings: LeBron James, Cavaliers' Free Fall Continues

19/01/2018, USA, Basketball, NBA (Basketball), Article # 25526042

If it felt like sacrilege when the Cleveland Cavaliers fell out of the top five in our power rankings a few weeks ago, what do we call this?

LeBron James' team is struggling, and several other Eastern Conference squads (one of which LBJ used to play for) are on the come-up, possibly jeopardizing the Cavs' home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs and sending them tumbling down the rankings.

Elsewhere, the Oklahoma City Thunder are righting the ship (for now), and the New Orleans Pelicans are riding a red-hot Anthony Davis to their highest position of the season.

As always, the goal is to organize all 30 teams into an order that reflects the league's current power structure. Recent play gets extra weight, but now that we're more than halfway into the season, we have to consider the last week alongside the larger sample. Is a rough three- or four-game stretch indicative of a team's true worth? Or is it a blip?

We make those tough calls and several others in this edition of power rankings.
