List Rules Vote up the NBA teams you think are the best right now.

30 teams, two conferences, one NBA championship - this is the ranking of the best teams in the NBA right now. 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 current best NBA team, so vote for your team below.

As the 2017 NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors were still the heavy favorites to win it all again in 2018—and they did. With Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Draymond Green, the record-breaking team won their sixth NBA championship in 2018, bringing them to the top of the NBA team rankings. Although they lost Kyrie Irving and Lebron James (after the 2018 season), the Cleveland Cavaliers could remain as one of the best teams in the east. Other NBA top teams include San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, and Oklahoma City Thunder. Now with Lebron James on their roster, among other great players, could the Lakers come into contention this season as well?

Vote for the NBA teams you think are playing the best right now. Feel free to vote for your favorite NBA teams or for the NBA teams that are exceeding expectations.
