National Basketball Association power rankings week 22: Rockets are still No. 1

14 March 2018, 02:11 | Henrietta Morgan

The Houston Rockets have the best chances out of all NBA teams to win the Finals this season, according to ESPN's Basketball Power Index.

Kyle Lowry poured in 30 points, DeMar DeRozan had 23 points to lead Toronto. Dwane Casey's decision for the Raptors to play with more pace and take more 3's has paid off.

Tredje AP fonden Decreases Position in Exxon Mobil Co. (XOM)
Cadence Bank Na increased its stake in Exxon Mobil Corp ( XOM ) by 2.1% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC. Following the transaction, the vice president now owns 291,385 shares in the company, valued at approximately $24,199,524.25.

The Raptors are an NBA-best 15-1 since February 2, and one of the main reasons has been bench production.

The third seed and the 10th seed in the west are only separated by 3.5 games. The win clinched the season series since they defeated Houston 129-113 on November 14 as well. They have won 14 of 15, recently topped the league's best Houston Rockets, and if it weren't for a missed foul call on a Jonas Valanciunas dunk, would be undefeated since February 1st.

The Rockets, Warriors and Pelicans had their lengthy winning streaks slashed last week.

Finally, Nicolas Cage Will Get To Play Superman
And after seeing some pre-production images of Cage in the suit, most fans are glad Burton's vision got torpedoed. The film was ultimately cancelled due to rising costs and concerns over the script.

This has already become a truly memorable season for the Raptors, and there's likely plenty more to come.

Is this the year of the Raptor?
