Season 24 Power Rankings #3

As we're about to head in to the stretch run of Season 24, it's time to check in with another edition of the power rankings.  Atlanta has been simply dominant this season, and remains #1.  Houston had a better record than Atlanta since the last rankings by one game, so they move up to #2.  #3 Salt Lake City is still playing well and has momentum.  Boston comes in at #4, and Pittsburgh cracks the top 5 with a strong run since the last rankings.  It seems a few teams have broken away from the pack, but come playoff time, you never know what will happen!   Good luck to all, here are the complete rankings!
