36-14 1 1/11
Proving that playing together for a long time can mean a lot.

42-13 1 1/8
Should be fine once Derrick Rose gets back. But better hope that’s soon.

37-14 - 1/5
Still not getting enough from the role players, particularly in road games.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
5

33-20 1 1/15
Ramon Sessions proving to be the point guard they lacked. Team still seeking consistency, though.

6

32-21 1 5/21
Keep starting Randy Foye over more-talented Nick Young, but hey, it’s working.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

32-21 2 5/16
Still fickle, but still have Dwight Howard. That makes them a playoff dark horse.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

30-22 5 2/19
Best team in the East since All-Star break.

Have yet to get Zach Randolph back to full speed, but managing to win more than lose anyway.

31-21 - 5/24
Rarely lose games they’re favored to win, but haven’t been surprising superior teams, either.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

31-23 1 4/14
Seem like a bigger threat than ever with this group, but hard to envision them getting too far minus Al Horford.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

30-24 1 2/15
Seem to have lost the confidence and cohesiveness that led to a title last year. But can still get it back.

29-23 4 4/22
Beginning to prove what we thought all along -- that they’re still a year away.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

29-24 3 5/19
As good on the road as they are at home. That’s both the good and bad news.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

29-25 1 10/25
Chandler Parsons second behind only Sacramento’s Isaiah Thomas for fictional Steal of the Draft award.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

28-26 2 7/25
Showing more balance and depth as season progresses. Will it result in playoff berth?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

27-26 1 3/21
Linsanity is over. Does Baron Davis have enough left to become a reliable replacement?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

26-26 3 12/24
Clearly have selected battling for the playoffs over another trip to the lottery, and finding it’s more fun.

25-28 1 13/24
Monta Ellis-Brandon Jennings backcourt may not work, but it sure scares opponents.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

25-29 1 5/21
Have actually done an admirable job of keeping it together when everyone said they would fall completely apart.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

25-30 2 17/29
Starting to show overall youth, but gave fans a reason to cheer and have hope for near future.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

20-31 - 19/26
Someday, they’ll get back into the top 20. And it may even be before we die of old age.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

19-34 2 23/29
A transaction or two away from becoming a playoff threat next season, mostly thanks to DeMarcus Cousins.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

19-33 1 22/29
Greg Monroe a year away from All-Star status. Brandon Knight could join soon after.

Will try to gut the team and rebuild around Andrea Bargnani in summer. Good luck.

19-35 - 17/29
Is Deron Williams a winner or just a guy who puts up good numbers? There’s a difference.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

17-33 3 16/28
Showed tons of promise early, but rash of injuries suddenly makes you wonder if they’re more than two first-round picks away from relevancy.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

13-40 - 16/29
Imagine the backlash if league-owned team wins the Anthony Davis lottery.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

12-41 - 18/30
More cohesive and getting better since trading Nick Young and JaVale McGee. But what to do with Andray Blatche?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

7-43 - 23/30
All they need is a top-five pick. For the next five years.
