Honorable Mention

New York Knicks

Previous Ranking: Unranked

Just missing the Top 10 NBA Teams 2023 rankings list is the New York Knicks who are currently holding onto the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Knicks entered the All-Star break as one of the hotter teams in the conference winning six of their last 10 contests including three straight to push their record to 33-27 on the 2022-23 NBA season.

Headlining the team’s success has been the play of Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson. The tandem has combined to score 48.7 points per game as well as 14.4 rebounds, 10.3 assists, and nearly two steals per game. In addition to those two the team has three additional players averaging at least double-digit figures per game.

Dallas Mavericks

Previous Ranking: Unranked

Only thing holding back the Dallas Mavericks at this point is the health of point guard Luka Doncic who had been battling an injury heading into the NBA All-Star break.

Despite not having Doncic in the lineup heading into the break, the Mavericks were still able to hold on to the sixth seed within the NBA Western Conference while winning 31 of their first 60 games to start the NBA schedule.

As NBA fans get excited about the second half of the 2022-2023 NBA Season getting underway, fans of the Mavericks are super excited about potentially having Doncic return to team up with newly acquired guard Kyrie Irving.

10. Los Angeles Clippers

Previous Ranking: #9

Coming in at number 10 on the Top 10 NBA Teams 2023 rankings list is the Los Angeles Clippers who are looking to make a deep run down the stretch.

The Clippers who are led by veterans Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have posted a 33-28 record to start the first half of the NBA season off while poisoning themselves into fourth place within the Western Conference.

However, despite holding a slight lead over the Phoenix Suns, concerns over the team’s consistencies on the floor as well as potential health to both Leonard and George have some experts questioning how deep of a run the team can make down the stretch. The Clippers are averaging just 111.4 points per game this season while allowing 111.1 points per game.

9. Brooklyn Nets

Previous Ranking: #7

It is hard to look past the success of the Brooklyn Nets this season and not like what Jacque Vaughn has done with the team to the mid-way point of the NBA season.

Vaughn who recently landed a long-term deal has the Nets holding on to the fifth seed within the Eastern Conference despite the ongoing drama around the team that included Steve Nash to start the season followed by trades of both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.

Nic Claxton has played solid during his fourth NBA season while the acquisition of Spencer Dinwiddie has paid off solidly. Big question mark down the stretch will be around the team’s lack of a proven All-Star player or two.

8. Sacramento Kings

Previous Ranking: Honorable Mention #2

Yes, you are reading this correctly. The Sacramento Kings rank in the Top 10 teams in the NBA through the 2023 NBA All-Star game.

Despite splitting their last 10 NBA games (5 wins, 5 losses), the Kings have the third best record in the NBA Western Conference with a .561 winning percentage.

Overall, the Kings have won 32 of their first 57 games this season while ranking first in the NBA in scoring as a team while averaging 119.5 points per game.

Also overall, the Kings have six different players averaging at least 11 points per game while having four players average at least four rebounds, and two players averaging at least six assists per game.

7. Phoenix Suns

Previous Ranking: #10

Watch out Western Conference the Phoenix Suns are back and looking to make a run at the Western Conference Championship.

The Suns are still loaded as any team in the Western Conference built around the likes of shooting guard Devon Booker, point guard Chris Paul, and center Deandre Ayton.

However, their struggles to start the first half have been attributed with the team’s overall health that has seen both Booker and Paul play in 39 games (Paul) and 33 games (Booker) respectively.

With the two All-Stars back in the lineup and the acquisition of Kevin Durant along with Ayton the Suns should have the firepower to compete in the NBA Playoffs.

6. Memphis Grizzlies

Previous Ranking: #3

In year’s past holding onto the second seed within the Western Conference nearly secured you the second-best ranking in the NBA.

However, across the start of the 2022-23 NBA season the Eastern Conference has been the dominant conference. That said the Memphis Grizzlies have been strong all season winning 35 of their first 57 games to start the season.

This includes posting a 24-5 record at home along with posting an impressive 18-6 record against those Eastern Conference teams.

Currently the Grizzlies have five different players averaging at least 10 points including a team high 27.3 points per game by Ja Morant while shooting guard Desmond Bane has added 21.6 points per game.

5. Cleveland Cavaliers

Previous Ranking: #6

Rounding out the top five on the Top 10 NBA Teams 2023 rankings list is the Cleveland Cavaliers who have been as impressive as any team around the NBA to start the season.

Entering the All-Star break in the NBA only the Milwaukee Bucks have been hotter than the Cavaliers who had won eight of their last 10 contests entering the break.

For the Cavaliers their success has come on the defensive end of the floor holding opponents to a league low 106.1 points per game while outscoring their opponents by nearly six points per game.
