Season 25 Power Rankings #3

It's time for another edition of the power rankings!  With just 40 games to go in season 25, the top 3 remained unchanged, with Atlanta holding the top spot, followed by Boston and Houston.  After that, there was some shuffling of teams, indicating that it should be a very interesting stretch run.  Good luck to all teams the rest of the way, here are the complete rankings!
