The Memphis Grizzlies, for the first time in more than two months, are back in the top two of ESPN.com's weekly NBA Power Rankings.

The top spot, though, remains in the possession of the Golden State Warriors. They weren't going to surrender the summit after one road loss, with Steph Curry out resting a sore ankle, to a hot Indiana Pacers team.

No longer can the Warriors claim to boast a single-digit loss total, but their ongoing dominance in categories such as offensive efficiency (No. 2), defensive efficiency (No. 1) and nightly average point margin (No. 1 at plus-10.6) ensured that the Grizzlies' season-long wait to get a taste of No. 1 would continue.

We'll delve further into this week's order -- with Cleveland rising to No. 4, Oklahoma City edging to the brink of the top 10, and Washington skidding all the way down to No. 18 -- on Stein Line Live. You can comment below on the latest ladder, which as always was compiled with data and research assistance from our friends at ESPN Stats & Information and the Elias Sports Bureau.
