Rockets top power rankings, Mavs 10th

Power rankings guru John Schuhmann over at writes:
Over the last few weeks, especially after I put the Rockets at No. 1 last week, I've received plenty of mail decrying Houston's winning streak. The predominant sentiment has been that only a few of their wins were against good teams, so it wasn't that big of a deal.
Most of that mail came from Lakers fans. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I give you Kobe Bryant:
"People who say that are the same people who say that me scoring 81 was nothing because we played against the Toronto Raptors. That's the kind of meaning that that had. It's B.S. Every team in the NBA is a tough team. Any time you go on a 21-game winning streak, that's absolutely amazing. If it was that easy, there would have been more teams that would have done it."
I also give you the result of yesterday's game: Rockets 104, Lakers 92.
The Mavs check in at the 10th spot, up one from last week. Check out the rest of John's latest rankings at
