Power Rankings: Still streaking

Monday, Nov. 16

Which will happen first?

A Golden State Warriors loss? Or a Philadelphia 76ers victory?

That's suddenly Question of the Month in the NBA, with the 11-0 reigning champs now just four wins shy of matching the best start in NBA history, while the 0-10 Sixers yet again rank as the league's last remaining winless team.

ESPN's trusty Basketball Power Index gives Golden State only a 28.1 percent shot to become the first team of all time to uncork a 16-0 start, but the Warriors are in an understandably buoyant mood these days given what's happening around the rest of the West, where several teams that were considered preseason locks to finish in the conference's top seven -- Houston, Memphis, New Orleans and even the Los Angeles Clippers -- are either dealing with a curious disappearance of form or serious health woes.

It was admittedly an almighty struggle for the Committee of One to pinpoint a team worthy of the No. 4 slot on this Rankings Monday, such are the ups and downs that have engulfed seemingly the entire league outside of Golden State, San Antonio and Cleveland in these first few weeks of the season. We'll naturally delve deeper into our 1-to-30 order, as always, via Stein Line Live, with the usual opportunity to comment on this week's ladder also below. (Hat tip to the NBA wing of ESPN Stats & Information, as well as the Elias Sports Bureau, for their ever-helpful dishing of data to assist us in our computations.)
