NBA Power Rankings, 2/10

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On February 10, 2011 @ 8:28 pm In General | No Comments

A quick explanation of the top four: While the Celtics [1] and Lakers have fallen prey to the annual February malaise at times, the Spurs continue to separate themselves in the standings, establishing a 5.5-game lead for homecourt throughout the playoffs.

Meanwhile, neither the Heat nor the Lakers have proven this season they can beat the Celtics, although that could change when both come to town in the next four days. While the Mavericks have won 10 straight and swept the C’s this season, I’m still not confident they’re any better than the third-best team out West. There you have it.

Now, it’s time to unveil this week’s full NBA Power Rankings. In a tribute to Ray Allen [2]‘s chase for Reggie Miller [3]‘s all-time 3-point record, we give you the best current and former long-distance shooters on each of the league’s 30 teams …
