Recap Week 19 of the 2022-23 NBA Season

Power Rankings

These are the only NBA rankings based on strength of schedule. It’s math, so you can’t be mad! You beat a good team at home, you get points. You beat a good team on the road and you get more points. The most points possible are if you beat a contending team on their home court. The least amount of points are given when you lose to a bad team on your home court.

The Best of the NBA Weeks 18-19

We combined the two shortened NBA weeks. Over that time these are the best:

  • dunk belonged to this ridiculous throw down by Dennis Smith Jr.
  • dime belonged to a D’Angelo Russell who is back on the Lakers.
  • deny was an unbelievable, met at the highest peak, act of athleticism by Joel Embiid.
  • dagger belonged to Jayson Tatum for this clutch 3. Unfortunately for the Sixers Embiid’s last second shot was late.
  • dazzler was brought to us by the Los Angeles Clippers and Sacramento Kings who combined for the second most points in and NBA game in history!
  • dud unfortunately for him belongs to Jayson Tatum for this out-of-bounds pass in the ASG
