8. Atlanta Hawks

Record: 16 - 8
Last Week's Rank: 6
Last Week's Results: W @ Toronto 100-77, (Tue); L vs. Memphis 77-96, (Thu); L vs. Philadelphia 87-98, (Sat)

It was a rough week for the Hawks, who dropped two out of three. Oddly, both Ls were not even close. But instead of dwelling on the past, Atlanta needs to look forward, especially with a game at Orlando on Friday and a huge match-up against Miami on Sunday. Another bad week and this team may start feeling the heat and need to perform some type of magic to climb back up our power rankings. See what I did there? —Jose Martinez
