1. The Bucks are 48-15 (1) ranked last week in brackets, the same as below.
Bresso and Brogden were absent at the same time. The Bucks sent out a large team. Ato Kunbo and Middleton played guards against the Jazz. The lineup played Jazz 29-7 in more than eight minutes. However, with Ilia Sova in foul trouble, the Bucks had a net minus 26 points in the presence of at least one substitute. This is the second game they have lost in the past eight weeks. Blaises effective shooting percentage (55.5%), real shooting percentage (58.4%) and loss-to-help ratio (2.6) are all at the highest level in his career, so he got a contract extension before playing against the Lakers, and then he scored a season high of 31 points to help the team win.
2. The Warriors 44-19 (2)
The Warriors began to take turns off players, and Cosins, Durant and Igodara all took a back-to-back break last week. But Thompson had some knee injuries in Orlando. They have been double-digit behind in 11 of the last 13 games, in which Cosins scored 17.6 points per 100 rounds when he was absent. However, depending on Lees excellent performance, the Warriors played a small climax in the third quarter, reversed 14 points behind, and also relied on the good performance of big men in the interior. They won in Philadelphia.
3. Raptors 46-18 (5)
The Raptors remained unbeaten (9-0) on Wednesday after last weeks victory over the Celtics, beating the other four best teams in the East 8-7, relying on the most effective lineup available several seasons ago: Lori and the substitutes at the beginning of the second quarter. The second line-up included Gasol, who started against the Blazers and Pistons, missed a chance to lock in victory in Detroit, where he had only 51 minutes to play with two All-Star teammates. The team continued to manage Leonards load, but he scored a winning goal against the Blazers on Saturday. He has scored seven times in the fourth quarter or the last minute of the overtime this season, leading the league in data.
4. Nuggets 42-20 (3)
Every game works, but some games are more important than others. The Nuggets won one of the most important games of the season. Yorkick scored 36 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists. The Nuggets rewrote their record against the Thunder team to 3-0. However, the team lost at home to Jazz and Pelicans, and the substitution line-up is becoming a problem. Yorkick had nine consecutive games of positive efficiency, but during his absence in 144 minutes, the team lost 10 points in the 100 rounds. The Nuggets didnt attack very well in Morristime with Thomas, with 97 points in the 100-round. The Nuggets still lost just one more game than the Warriors, and they will meet directly on Saturday, and they will meet twice in the regular season.
5. Trailblazers 39-24 (6)

Hood scored 27 points in the second half against the Hornets, and their starting line-up won 31.2 points per 100 rounds in six games. The Blazers still ranked fourth in the West. They had an important match with the Thunder on Friday. The Thunder team won the first three games of the season.
6. Rockets 38-25 (8)
In Houston, they dont have load management. Harden leads the league in efficiency, ranking fifth in total playing time. Paul also made his debut in back-to-back last week. The second back-to-back game was their third reversal when they were more than 20 minutes behind. Harden scored 58 points against the top 10 defenses in the league. Although Paul, Harden and Capella were present at the same time, they still lost points, but the team has won five consecutive wins. During the winning streak, the trio netted 1 point in 84 minutes, giving their opponents more than 116 points per 100 rounds. Their success was attacked and they scored 118.1 points in the leagues best 100 rounds since February 1.
7. Jazz 36-26 (9)
During the three toughest games in the remaining three games, the Jazz won three games and lost none. They suppressed the top 11 offensive teams and allowed the Clippers, Nuggets and Bucks to score 102.6 points per 100 rounds. On the offensive side, Kovo and Fervus have helped the team a lot. Mitchell has also shouldered the heavy burden, averaging 34 points in three games. Mitchells effective shooting percentage and real shooting percentage decreased compared with last season, but when his effective shooting percentage exceeded 50%, the team won 24-4. They lost only two more games from the top four in the West, and 17 of them are winning less than 50% in the next 18 games.
8.76 people 40-23 (11)
Enbid continued to be absent, Harris averaged 26 points in four games after the All-Star, with 58% shooting percentage and 8 points in a row at the critical moment of victory over the Thunder. However, since the All-Star era, the 76ers ranked 25th in offense, with Butler and Reddick scoring only 33% of the total. Only five of the remaining 19 games are currently winning more than 50%, but this week there will be two. Next Monday, their game with the Pacers will be the third in the Eastern Conference.
9. Thunder 39-24 (4)
West 4, 5, 6 seeds are in seasons best condition, so Georges shoulder injury is a bad time for the Thunder team, they can hold third, thanks to the difficult reversal of the Grizzlies game. After Georges absence, the Thunder attacked badly and their team felt cold outside the three-point line. The past five games were the earliest offensive feeling for the Thunder team since the first five games of the season, with 101.7 points in the 100 rounds. In the west, the Thunder team has only 8 wins and 12 losses. They will have a four-company visitor, including the Blazers and Jazz.
10. Clippers 36-29 (13)

Bauers absence was one reason. Their defence began to decline in four games between Bauers injury and LeBrons return. LeBron is expected to surpass Jordan to No. 4 in the history scoring table this week. He only needs 40 points, so Thursdays game against the Nuggets could be a milestone. The teams ranked 11th to 30th are the Walkers, Celtics, Spurs, Pistons, Kings, Magic, Pelicans, Nets, Heat, Wolves, Hornets, Lakers, Rangers, Eagles, Bulls, Wizards, Cavaliers, Grizzlies, Suns and Nikes.
