Power Rankings: Wins Don't Move the Needle

The Nets beat the Hawks and Grizzlies last week, but they remain stuck in the 24/25 slot in all the major power rankings.  Call it waiting for 'Melo, writes Marc Stein.

A good performance vs. New Orleans would have helped.  John Schuhmann writes, "The Nets' six-game stretch of good defense (94.4 points allowed per 100 possessions) came to a screeching halt in New Orleans on Wednesday." Both Schuhmann and Kurt Helin note the contributions of Sasha Vujacic in positive comments. 

Of the two stats guys, John Hollinger and Jeff Sagarin, Hollilnger ranks the Nets higher at #23, with Sagarin putting them at #25.
