They are still the number one but are the days of glory slowly counting down?
The Golden State Warriors and the Boston Celtics are still the reigning squads on each conference they are in but are they still dominating? Or are the teams slightly trailing behind them getting ready for one big run to rake them out of the peak?
Boston hadn't made any significant run that could match their 16 - 0 jaw-dropping streak. They've been arbitrarily winning and losing some games and luckily other teams like the Raptors at number two hasn't established big streaks or else, their drop is guaranteed.
But the sad thing is they recently lost to the Raptors. A very bad sign of them losing their early domination on the regular season.
The Raptors out an end on their newly emerging 4 win streak.
On the other hand, the Dubs who's also sitting pretty on top is not doing quite well recently. They lost 3 of their last 4 games, with one coming from OKC - a prospective rival in the near future.
James Harden is also setting the Rocket's own fire with his MVP like playing intensity. The Dubs are surely in danger every single game.
It was just a great phenomenon for Both Boston and Warriors that they've played a little bit more games than the other teams trying to chase them. If that couldn't have happened, the probability of them dropping is almost a hundred percent. They have the same number of losses as compared to their conference rivals.
Boston and the Raptors have 16 defeats while the Warriors and the Rockets both have 13.
2 wins away for the Raptors and it would be climbing time if circumstances would provide (Boston losing both games). While on the west, the Dubs are only up to a single victory against the ferocious Houston Rockets. Expect the dynamic standings to occur on both ends.
