NBA power rankings: Golden State holds on to top 10 ranking

US PRESSWIRE

The Warriors continue their hot streak but stay put in the SB Nation power rankings.

The Golden State Warriors have picked up wins in eight of their last 10 games and although they're one of the hottest teams in the NBA, they stayed put in the SB Nation's power rankings this week.

The Warriors are in the middle of a seven games road swing back east and although they took care of business against the Brooklyn Nets, Seth Rosenthal writes he'd still like to see the Warriors not only really take it to some of the league's elite teams but to keep their foot firmly placed on the gas peddle against some of the league's worst.

The short-handed Warriors continue to look remarkably well-rounded, and the next step seems to be eliminating stretches of carelessness so they can make quicker work of bad teams -- the Warriors let Detroit and Washington hang with them a bit this past week (and lost to the Magic, too). Stifling nippy bottom-dwellers and earning some blowouts might graduate Golden State from "team with a very good record" to "very good team."

Rosenthal has high praise though for some of the Warriors best young players including Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry who are having remarkably good Decembers.

After what should be an easy win against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight, the Warriors continue their road trip down the coast to face the Miami Heat, Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks.
