Each of these eight teams has been playing well enough to separate itself from the rest of its NBA colleagues as of Tuesday morning.
But just because each team is currently in the top third of the NBA in terms of winning percentage doesn't mean they are all without their warts.
The latest red flags for each of the NBA's top teams include rising turnover rates, an inability to defend the three-point line, the tendency to play down to the level of a team's competition and everything else in between.
These red flags represent each team's trend that must be corrected moving forward.
These are not fatal flaws for any one team necessarily. If each red flag is not eventually addressed, however, they could become that.
