Ranking The Top 5 Teams in the NBA

Ranking The Top 5 Teams in the NBA

Hyped by on December 21, 2012 Website:

After about a quarter of a season has passed in the NBA, it’s time to see who has stepped up and dominated the early part of the season.

5. Memphis Grizzlies

The Grizzlies are an impressive 16-6 this year, and with quality wins over the Knicks, Heat, and Thunder, the Grizzlies are certainly a top five team in the NBA. They have a dominant front court, with Zach Randolph who’s averaging a double-double a game, and Marc Gasol, who provides a great mid-range shot and terrific passing ability for a big man. Rudy Gay continues to be a great scorer who’s as athletic as anyone in the NBA. Tony Allen is a terrific perimeter defender, and Mike Conley continues to improve. Both his passing and outside shot have been great this year. With these pieces, it’s hard to play Memphis and leave with a win.
