they base the rankings literally on like the last week of play and the teams you won against.
The knicks beat the
hornets on the road
and the trail blazers
they lost to the celtics by only 2
and the nuggets by 2
combine the winning percentage of those teams, and that explains
why we are ranked 16th
if our schedule was even keeled as opposed to so top heavy in terms of playing teams with winning records, our win loss column would be closer to a 500 team than 8-15.
