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 are still the heavy favorites to win it all again this season. With Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green, the record-breaking team are looking to win 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.
