PacersThe Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Here are this week’s top three NBA teams:

1. Pacers (16-1, Last Week No. 2)
We’ll see how the Pacers handle their tough West Coast road swing this week, but they won the first game of it against the Clippers.

2. Heat (13-3, LW 3)
They have won 10 in a row and getting it done with defense — they held three consecutive opponents under 40 percent shooting last week.

3. Trail Blazers (14-3, LW 4)
This is currently your No. 1 seed in the West, and this fast start gives them a cushion in a very deep Western Conference.
