With Boston losing heartbreakers to the Suns and Clippers during their five-game road trip out west, that means A. Sherrod Blakely's NBA Power Rankings have a brand new team for a third consecutive week.
Will it be the Rockets, who ran off an eight-game win streak with James Harden and Russell Westbrook? Will it be the Nuggets, who finally put a stop to Houston's run? Or could it be one of the two powerhouse teams who call the Staples Center home?
Without further ado, onto this week's NBA hierarchy.
Don't miss NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-Nuggets, which tips off Friday at 8 p.m. ET with Celtics Pregame Live, then Mike & Scal have the call of the game at 9 p.m. You can also stream the game through the MyTeams App.
