We've reached the point that the question has to be asked:

How many of Golden State's final nine games would the Warriors have to lose for ESPN's NBA Power Rankings committee (of one) to move them out of the No. 1 spot?

It's honestly hard to imagine any circumstance for the rest of the season, barring an unfortunate injury, that would knock the Dubs off their perch with only two more helpings of weekly rankings to go. They're the NBA's only 60-win team and just the 13th team all-time to win 60 of their first 73 games.

Of those previous 13 teams, in case you're curious, 10 went on to reach the NBA Finals ... with nine of them winning it all.

There were some other notable movers, upward and downward, in our latest 1-to-30 ladder, but we'll save the discussion of those for Stein Line Live. This space -- this whole regular season, really -- increasingly belongs to the Dubs, who happen to be 46-5 when ace rim protector Andrew Bogut joins Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes in the starting lineup.

You can comment below on these rankings, which as always were compiled with data and research assistance from our friends at ESPN Stats & Information and the Elias Sports Bureau. Or you can rank the teams below yourself.
