NBA Power Rankings as teams prepare to end the All-Star break and resume play on Thursday. The Milwaukee Bucks are ranked first.

Home » NBA Power Rankings [Feb. 21st]: Milwaukee on top

The Milwaukee Bucks remain the top-ranked team in our NBA Power Rankings. Not much has changed since our last update, mainly because there were not a ton of games that were played due to the All-Star Break. However, there were some shake-ups toward the bottom of our top ten, with the Dallas Mavericks dropping out and the LA Clippers added in.

The Bucks, winners of twelve straight, continue to look very dangerous. It will be interesting to see if they stay in tip-top form after the break or if the other teams narrow the gap.
