With the first week of the NBA season now complete, teams are still in the process of feeling things out when it comes to their personnel how rotations will be set up. For some teams, most notably the Golden State Warriors, this process will take bit longer than it will for others simply because of how big the changes were during the offseason. The Warriors rebounded nicely from an opening night loss to the Spurs
, but there's still plenty of work to be done on their part. As for the Spurs, they're off to a 4-0 start despite the retirement of Tim Duncan.
Two teams dropped out of Heavy's Top 10 power rankings after the first week of games, Utah (previously tenth) and Indiana (previously seventh). There's no shame in Utah's two losses, as they dropped road games to two contenders in the Blazers and Clippers. But if anything was to be learned from those games it's just how important currently injured small forward Gordon Hayward
is to their lineup. As for the Pacers, they followed up an overtime win over the Mavericks with losses to the Nets and Bulls, and the Paul George-led team hasn't looked all that good even with the play of second-year big man Myles Turner.
