In this week's NBA Power Rankings by SI.com, the Warriors jumped 8 spots from last week, ending up at 15th in the NBA. Says si.com's Marty Burns,
The Dubs are surrounded by fellow western conference teams fighting for the 7th and 8th spots, with the Nuggets and Hornets coming in at 13th and 14th, respectively, with the Clippers right behind at 16th.
For the record, SI's power rankings are done somewhat NCAA style - meaning the ranking is based largely on how the team is playing at the time, not over the course of the whole season.
As far as other teams in the Western Conference hunt, the Lakers were 19th, the Kings 21st, and the T'Wolves 27th.
THROW UP THAT W TONIGHT! and move up more in the rankings next week. :)
