Phoenix Suns

A season after their first NBA Finals appearance since 1993, the Phoenix Suns (42-10) are making a push to get back there this season. Led by Devin Booker, seven Suns players are averaging at least 10 points per game this season.

2

Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors (40-13) have allowed the second-fewest points per game this season (102.7). It will be interesting to see how they look when Klay Thompson gets more games under his belt and James Wiseman returns.

3

Memphis Grizzlies

Behind the play of superstar point guard Ja Morant, the Memphis Grizzlies (37-18) are one of the surprising teams in the NBA this season. Morant (26.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 6.9 assists) has thrust his name into MVP conversations.

4

Milwaukee Bucks

Despite experiencing a bit of a championship hangover, the Milwaukee Bucks (34-21) seem poised to make another run at a title. As is the case with every team, health will be the most important factor in that endeavor.

5

Miami Heat

Despite having players in and out of the lineup, the Miami Heat (30-17) have the best record in the East. The Heat are seeking a third straight playoff appearance and second Finals appearance in the last three seasons.
