8. Brooklyn Nets (Previous Week: 8)
Brooklyn split its four games since the All-Star break. Although three wins in the course of a week is not breaking news, it is good to see the Nets show consistency. This team has experienced the most transition in the NBA season. They are playing in a new arena, in a new city with a recently acquired star in Joe Johnson. We know that the Nets can string together a few wins. It’s the buzzer-beaters by guys like Johnson that keeps them in the Top 10 of this week’s rankings. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
