Power Rankings: Rising Above NYK

One loss can hurt you in the power rankings. Chris Sheridan posted his before the Nets' 21-point loss to the Raptors and had the Nets at #20. Anyone who posted after that game had them lower. But still everyone, starting with Sheridan, had the Nets ranked above their soon-to-be New York rivals, the Knicks.

As John Schuhmann wrote, "The Nets had turned the corner with a 4-2 stretch, and Deron Williams finally looked like the star point guard they traded for with a ridiculous performance in Philadelphia on Wednesday. But somehow, they were satisfied with a two-game winning streak."

Schuhmann and Marc Stein of ESPN have the Nets at #22; Kurt Helin of NBC Sports and Tom Ziller of SB Nation have them at #23.
