We don't do ties in the NBA Power Rankings.

This, though, is one of those times when you could get some support for the idea, when the Celtics and Lakers are consistently making it so hard on the committee (of one) to choose between them.

The longstanding rivals went a combined 7-0 since our last rankings batch, resulting in a rare status-quo trifecta for the top three in our weekly, fully unautomated pulse-check of the league. This is the third successive week our poll reads Celtics-Lakers-Cavaliers at the top.
