NBA Power Rankings: Knicks Want Respect

The top five teams in the NBA are well established (Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets) but the New York Knicks want some respect. The Knicks just beat the Thunder to win their 12th straight game. They are 11th in scoring and eighth in defense. Only the Heat and Clippers are better on defense. The Knicks have the seconded seed in the Eastern Conference and look to play the Boston Celtics in the opening round of the playoffs.
