Power Rankings: Knicks hold fast at No. 3

12/18/2012

The Knicks' wins over the Nuggets, Nets, Lakers and Cavs this week really impressed ESPN.com's Marc Stein. Stein is keeping New York at No. 3 in his weekly rankings, ahead of Miami (No. 5) and San Antonio (No. 4) and behind the Clippers (No. 2) and Thunder (No. 1).

Writes Stein: "The Knicks are on a 64-win pace, rain 3s, protect the ball better than any team going, and -- in case you want even more evidence that this (relatively speaking) might be their year -- have somehow won their last six one-point games after Saturday's Melo-less escape against Cleveland."
