NBA Southwest Division Power Rankings: Grizzlies Continue to Dominate
By Jay Desai
We’re a little over three weeks through the NBA season and the NBA’s division races are shaping up quite nicely, especially the Southwest Division.
The Southwest Division continues to flex its muscles as the NBA’s best division with all teams currently holding records above .500.
This weeks action saw a bunch of wins for Southwest Division teams but left confusion as to who was the division’s best team.
Anyways, with that said, let’s check out the Southwest Division power rankings from week three! As always, let us know your thoughts on the rankings below in the comments section!
Dallas Mavericks 8-3 (1-1 DIV)
Last week: 4-0 Last rank: 4
Finally, a ranking that Dallas Mavericks fans can be somewhat happy about. Dallas is in a similar position to Houston as a team that could be the best team in another division.Mavericks fans should be ecstatic about the team’s play recently with four wins in a row for the franchise. The only issue about those four wins was that three of them were at home and the win on the road was against the struggling Charlotte Hornets. While some might be tempted to place Dallas over Houston, it is important to take into consideration perspective. Houston won three of its games on the road and its only loss was to the team with the best record in the NBA. The Mavericks do have a shot at moving up some more for next week though with games against stiff competition upcoming.
Up Next This Week: Nov. 19 @ Washington, Nov. 21 vs. Los Angeles Lakers, Nov. 22 @ Houston
