NBA Power Rankings 2012: Pro Basketball Talk Places Denver Nuggets At No. 8

In his latest power rankings for Pro Basketball Talk, Kurt Helin places the Denver Nuggets at No. 8, two spots lower than they were a week ago. Denver is coming off a rough back-to-back-to-back stretch of games that saw the Nuggets lose two of three.

Beat the Clippers, lost to the Lakers and fell to the Trail Blazers on the third night of a back-to-back-to-back. Still one of the most fun teams to watch in the league.

Despite the recent struggles, which can be a function of the tight schedule as much as anything else, the Nuggets have the fourth best record in the Western Conference.
