The Brooklyn Nets are ranked as the fourth best team in ESPN.com’s latest NBA Power Rankings, released earlier this week. In last week’s edition, the Nets moved up two spots as he was ranked as the sixth best team in the league.
Since last week, Brooklyn has defeated the Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks. This is his 14.25-point winning percentage average for the Nets in four games, and the most impressive win in that span was against the Cavaliers, as the Warriors, Bucks, and Hawks lacked key his player.
At this point, Brooklyn are on a 10-game winning streak and have won 14 of their last 15 games. The last time the Nets achieved his 10th straight win was during the 2005–06 season.
ESPN’s Nick Friedell said of the current state of the Nets:
“The hottest team in the league has won nine straight times in 13 of the last 14 games and continues to play with confidence. Kevin Durant is playing like an MVP and coach Jack Vaughan has simplified its message to teams contributing up and down the roster: Everything is going well in Brooklyn right now.”
Brooklyn’s next game is Saturday against the Charlotte Hornets.
