John Schuhmann, @NBA.com, title for this week’s rankings is so on target, “The Western Conference is just too darn deep.” Only Indiana and Miami have one of the top 10 records. All 5 of the Southwest division teams have a top 11 record, with Memphis and New Orleans tied at 11th.

According to Matt Moore @CBSSports, the Grizzlies have fallen apart and won’t run any more.

A look at the Strength of Schedule shows that Memphis is still considered to have one of the hardest schedules. Miami and Indiana are ranked as having nearly the easiest in every ranking. What’s scary is that Portland and San Antonio are ranked in the middle of pact of SOS.

Average ranking for the week is 12.58, from last week of 12.17. (Actual not included in average.)
