Rank 'Em: NBA Power Rankings

Created: March 9, 2009, 9:07 AM

Are Deron Williams and the Jazz among the NBA's elite?

A few weeks ago, the Utah Jazz were on the playoff bubble, a 30-23 team that was considered decent but not a serious threat to the big boys.

Look what an 11-game winning streak will do. The Jazz are 17 games better than .500 and are garnering some serious attention. Utah has beaten both the Lakers, Los Angeles' better team, and Boston in its run of dominance, routinely putting up high scores, including a 120-point effort against the hapless Minnesota Timberwolves.

Although the Lakers are still head and shoulders above the rest of the West, are the Jazz making it less of an open-and-shut case? Submit your rankings now!
