Top 5 NBA Teams....

I don't know what to think about this, but the most viewed post on my blog in its seven month history is the post on my NBA predictions. In light of this, I have decided to post once again on the NBA. Anyways, enough about my rationale. This weeks top 5 NBA teams are as follows:

5. Utah Jazz--(4-1 in their last five and 11-5 overall). With recent victories over New Orleans and Detroit the Jazz are starting to show that last season was no fluke. Ronnie Brewer is having a fantastic 2nd year in the league. Jerry Sloan has done another great job of coaching by getting Kirilenko more involved in the Jazz's offense. This definitely helps them on the floor, but more importantly deals with what could have been (and still might become) a locker room nightmare.

4. Phoenix Suns--(3-2 in their last five and 11-4 overall). Steve Nash is playing out of his mind. He is shooting better than 55% from the field scoring almost 20 points per game and averaging almost 11 assists per contest. Don't be surprised if Nash wins his fourth straight, I mean his 3rd MVP.

3. Boston Celtics--(3-2 in their last five and 11-2 overall) I still think the Celtics are the team to beat in the East. But Orlando's recent victory over them and the lack of production from the bench puts the Celtics in at #3.

2. Orlando Magic--(4-1 in their last five and 14-3 overall). Dwight Howard's numbers on the year: 23.5 points 14.5 rebounds 2.7 blocks 61.2 fg %

1. San Antonio Spurs--(4-1 in their last five and 13-3 overall) Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker are showing everyone in the league why they are still the team to beat. Not to mention the fact that Brent Barry is shooting over 50% from 3-point range. They may not end up with the best record in the league, but this team was built for the playoffs.
