Remember that 9-8 start by the Miami Heat? That certainly seems like ancient history at this point. Miami has won 21 of its last 22 games, including 13 straight on the road.
This team certainly has its chemistry figured out on both ends of the floor, but have they risen to the top of the NBA?
The San Antonio Spurs still have the league's best record at 31-6, but lost back to back games in Boston and New York this past week.
Other teams that still look like legitimate title contenders include the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and Dallas Mavericks (if they can find someone to replace the injured Caron Butler).
How does every team in the league stack up right now? Let's found out in this week's edition of the official Bleacher Report NBA Power Rankings.
The Bleacher Report NBA Power Rankings are done by averaging individual featured columnists' tallies. This week's contributors were Allen Kim (NBA), John Friel (Heat), Brian Chappatta (Bulls), Andrew Bailey (NBA/Mavericks), and Bryan Toporek (NBA Team Leader).
