Here we are heading into the 17th 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.

This week, they had to settle for #5 in the power rankings despite the fact that they still have the best record in the NBA.

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
  • Week 17: 5th

Their stretch of 14 consecutive weeks in the top 5, however, is very impressive, even though their rank of 5th this week is their lowest since Week 3. When will they finally make the jump to the #1 spot?
