According to ESPN.com's Marc Stein, there's only one NBA team better than the New York Knicks right now.
In Stein's latest Power Rankings, the 4-0 Knicks are No. 2 behind San Antonio (6-1). Last week, the Knicks were No. 3. They opened the regular season ranked 15th.
Writes Stein: "Melo looks like a new man, their D has been stout and the Knicks continue to shoot the ball amazingly well. The lone disclaimer: They've had to play only four games in two weeks, and three of those were at home. A legit stress test awaits this week with three road games in four nights."
After Tuesday's game against Orlando, the Knicks will travel to San Antonio to open a back-to-back on Thursday night that ends in Memphis.
Question: What do you think about the ranking? Too low? Too high?
