While the Knicks slipped one spot to seventh, the Nets jumped up three spots to No. 6 in this week's NBA Power Rankings, compiled by ESPN NBA writer Marc Stein, who writes:

On the Knicks: "A win in Milwaukee is a good win these days, but the Knicks wouldn't dare suggest that they're all the way back to their early November best in terms of swarming D and draining 3s. Not with 39-year-old glue of the operation Jason Kidd ailing and Raymond Felton dealing a bruised hand."

On the Nets: "The Nets just posted their first 10-win November since the second of their back-to-back trips to the NBA Finals in 2002-03. Our question: Focus on the steadily improving D and Jerry Stackhouse's renaissance or the slumping (Joe Johnson/Gerald Wallace) and ailing (D-Will and Brook Lopez)?
