2012 NBA power rankings: Warriors climb, Kings settle at bottom

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

The Golden State Warriors are making moves up some power rankings while the Sacramento Kings sit very close to the bottom.

The Golden State Warriors appear in the middle third of the NBA power rankings across the Internet, while the Sacramento Kings are unanimously a bottom-three ball club.

Mark Jackson's Warriors appear 11th in Yahoo! writer Marc J. Spears' power rankings, jumping 11 spots from last week because Golden State won three of four games in that stretch. The only loss came, understandably, against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

ESPN's Marc Stein was less considerate. He had Golden State at 22nd last week, but moved the team up just three spots to No. 19. Meanwhile, SB Nation's Seth Rosenthal locks the Warriors into 20th place considering their decent record through a tough schedule.

All three writers agree that Sacramento, at 2-8, belongs toward the bottom of the list. Rosenthal and Spears have the Kings at 29th in the NBA while Stein is a little more kind, labeling them the 28th-best team ahead of a Kyrie Irving-less Cleveland team and the helpless Washington Wizards.
