NBA Power Rankings (Feb. 14th)

Last week's games featured several bellwether matchups, with the Lakers beating Boston in a rematch from 10 days earlier, Miami losing again to the Celtics, and Orlando defeating the Lakers to reclaim consideration amongst the legitimate title contenders following a tough home loss to the Heat a week ago last Thursday.

In order to determine my team rankings, I calculate the difference between a team's own FIC per game and their opponents' FIC for the entire season.

For example, the Celtics had a +7.1 FIC in their 85-82 win over Miami on Sunday, while the Magic had a +18.4 in their defeat of Los Angeles.

The FIC is a single statistical measurement that encompasses things such as scoring efficiency, rebounding, blocked shots, etc. Its purpose is to combine the box score into one statistic, both on a team level or for players.

1. Boston Celtics: 16.6 
2. San Antonio Spurs: 15.0 
3. Miami Heat: 14.6 
4. Chicago Bulls: 12.4 
5. Los Angeles Lakers: 10.9  
6. Orlando Magic: 8.2 
7. Dallas Mavericks: 7.4 
8. New Orleans Hornets: 5.4 
9. OklahomaCity Thunder: 4.1 
10. Portland Trail Blazers: 3.9 
11. Utah Jazz: 3.7 
12. Atlanta Hawks: 2.6 
13. Philadelphia 76ers: 2.5 
14. New York Knicks: 1.5 
15. Houston Rockets: 1.5 
16. Memphis Grizzlies: 0.4 
17. Denver Nuggets: -0.4 
18. Indiana Pacers: -0.8 
19. Phoenix Suns: -3.1 
20. Milwaukee Bucks: -3.2 
21. Los Angeles Clippers: -4.2 
22. Charlotte Bobcats: -4.2 
23. Sacramento Kings: -7.9 
24. Golden State Warriors: -8.9 
25. Detroit Pistons: -9.8 
26. Washington Wizards: -10.3 
27. New Jersey Nets: -11.6 
28. Toronto Raptors: -11.7
