List Rules Vote up the NBA teams you think are the best in the 2017-18 season.

30 teams, two conferences, one NBA championship - this is the ranking of the best teams in the NBA for the 2017-2018 season. Win percentages, points per game, and opponent's points per game are all factors for determining which NBA team is performing the best right now, but winning streaks and other basketball stats also demand consideration. Fans like you are casting their votes for the best NBA team this season and making their 2018 NBA Playoffs predictions.

As the 2017 NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors were still the heavy favorites to win it all again in 2018. With Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green, the record-breaking team won their sixth NBA championship in 2018. Although they lost Kyrie Irving, the Cleveland Cavaliers remains as the best team in the east with LeBron James, Kevin Love, and Dwyane Wade. Other NBA top teams include San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, and Oklahoma City Thunder, who added Paul George and Carmelo Anthony over the summer of 2017.

Vote for the NBA teams you think are playing the best in the 2017-2018 season. Feel free to vote for your favorite NBA teams or for the NBA teams that are exceeding expectations.
