Power Rankings - Back Down

The Nets two losses to the Knicks and Timberwolves dropped them a few places in this week's Power Rankings, down to the #22 - #26 range. Games where they might have had a chance if healthy turned into embarrassing losses.

As John Schuhmann writes, "The Nets' offense has been pretty good, scoring more than 104 points per 100 possessions, over their last nine games. But their defense has remained atrocious ... They let Nikola Pekovic (27 points on Friday) and Jeremy Lin (25 on Saturday) beat them over the weekend".

Marc Stein is a little kinder. "Going to take some pity on the Nets after a weekend of lost opportunities against the Wolves and Knicks and spotlight Anthony Morrow's entree Friday to an exclusive club," one with only five members this year. Morrow joined Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, LeBron James and Tony Parker in the 40-point club.
