Below are the NBA Week 13 Power Rankings.

T1. Golden State Warriors (33-9)

  • Kevin Durant scored his 20,000th career point Wednesday night in a loss to the Clippers. Still only 29 years old, KD ranks 44th in all-time scoring, and he can pass current players Joe Johnson & Pau Gasol this season. – Joe Morris

“I’m actually thrilled. Bob Myers and I had a conversation this morning and I said you know Gruden has 1 title and I’ve got 2. $100 million over 10 years… I don’t know, maybe we need to talk Bob.” – Steve Kerr on Gruden’s new contract

T1. Boston Celtics (34-10)

  • They’ve won seven in a row, including this afternoon’s comeback win in London, and it looks like the hot start that the Celtics got off to early in the season was no fluke. – Joe Morris

“I’m not saying Isaiah shouldn’t get a tribute video… But on February 11, the night I get my jersey retired, I’m not sure I want to look up at the jumbotron and see Isaiah highlights.” – Paul Pierce on the timing of IT’s tribute video

3. Toronto Raptors (28-11)

  • I don’t think dinosaurs should be fighting. – Matthew Jones

4. San Antonio Spurs (28-14)

5. Minnesota Timberwolves (27-16)

6. Houston Rockets (29-11)

7. Cleveland Cavaliers (26-14)

  • The Cavs still rank in the bottom ten of just about every defensive category, and the Cavs’ current streak of six straight games allowing 100+ points reflects incredible defensive shortcomings. – Joe Morris

8. Miami Heat (24-17)

  • The Heat continues to climb up the list slowly. This week, Goran Dragić and James Johnson got into a fight with Serge Ibaka and DeMar DeRozan of the Raptors. Fire. – Matthew Jones

9. Washington Wizards (23-18)

10. Milwaukee Bucks (22-18)

  • The NBA All-Star Break is coming up pretty fast, and Giannis has now gone on record saying he would take LeBron James as his first non-teammate pick in the All-Star Draft. Huh. – Matthew Jones

11. Detroit Pistons (22-18)

  • The Pistons better be ready for the Bulls on Saturday as a returning Zach LaVine is making his season debut after tearing his ACL last year. – Matthew Jones

12. Portland Trail Blazers (22-19)

  • Apparently, Damian Lillard and Chris Paul have some bad blood. Lillard felt disrespected by Paul’s layup at the end of their game this week. Let it go, man. There’s so much ego in the sport that it can get to everyone’s head. – Matthew Jones

13. Oklahoma City Thunder (22-20)

14. Indiana Pacers (21-20)

15. Denver Nuggets (21-20)

16. New Orleans Pelicans (20-20)

T17. Philadelphia 76ers (19-20)

  • I understand everyone wanting to trust the process, but did you really believe that they would have a shot at the playoffs this year? – Matthew Jones

T17. Los Angeles Clippers (19-21)

  • Lou Williams scored a career-high 50 points in the Clippers’ surprise win over the Warriors. Williams, who has mostly been a sixth-man type of player his whole career, has had plenty of starting time with the myriad of injuries to the Clipper backcourt. – Joe Morris

19. Sacramento Kings (19-22)

20. Utah Jazz (17-24)

21. Phoenix Suns (16-26)

22. Chicago Bulls (15-27)

  • Dirk Nowitzki gave some pretty high praise this week to rookie Lauri Markkanen of the Bulls. Dirk said that the kid out of Arizona will be great for a long time. That’s a pretty awesome thing to hear from a guy like Dirk. – Matthew Jones

23. Dallas Mavericks (15-28)

  • It’s been an up and down stretch for the Mavs, but two wins on a back-to-back stretch have the team sitting in playoff contention. If they’re ever going to get off the ground, however, they’ll need Seth Curry to get healthy soon. – Joe Morris

24. Charlotte Hornets (15-24)

  • Malik Monk seemed like such a steal in the draft, yet the rookie has only managed 5.6 ppg and has already spent multiple stints in the G League. He’s still a project, but his future as a contributor looks bleak at the moment. – Joe Morris

25. Los Angeles Lakers (13-27)

  • Some Big Ballers might be making some headlines in Lithuania, but Lonzo has had a pretty impressive rookie season despite all the noise surrounding him. Averaging 10-7-7, Ball might just be able to wrestle the Rookie of the Year away from Ben Simmons. – Joe Morris

26. Brooklyn Nets (15-26)

27. Memphis Grizzlies (13-27)

28. Sacramento Kings (13-27)

29. Orlando Magic (12-29)

30. Atlanta Hawks (11-30)
