Make that six straight Mondays atop ESPN.com's weekly NBA Power Rankings for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The newsiest Week 20 developments are found elsewhere in the top 10, with Cleveland (No. 2) and Orlando (No. 3) bumping Boston down to No. 4, San Antonio inching back into the top five and Atlanta making an unexpected jump to No. 9 -- its highest position since Week 10 -- which dropped Denver to No. 11.

That's the Nuggets' lowest position since the second Monday of the regular season, just one week into the Chauncey Billups era.
