Here we are heading into the 16th week of the 2017-2018 NBA season. To this point in the season, the Golden State Warriors have yet to be ranked #1 via the new formulated power rankings.

Once again, they had to settle for #2 in the power rankings, this time to yet another team that had not yet been ranked #1 in the rankings so far this season: the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Could this spell trouble for the Warriors moving forward, or will the defending champions finally jump to the top spot of these rankings?

Here are their rankings so far this NBA season, week by week.

  • Preseason (non-formulated): 1st
  • Week 2: 20th
  • Week 3: 15th
  • Week 4: 4th
  • Week 5: 2nd
  • Week 6: 2nd
  • Week 7: 4th
  • Week 8: 4th
  • Week 9: 2nd
  • Week 10: 2nd
  • Week 11: 2nd
  • Week 12: 2nd
  • Week 13: 2nd
  • Week 14: 3rd
  • Week 15: 2nd
  • Week 16: 2nd

Their stretch of 13 consecutive weeks in the top 4, eight straight weeks in the top 3, and seven out of the last eight weeks in the top 2, however, are very impressive. But when will they finally make the jump to the #1 spot?
