2012 NBA power rankings: Wizards still No. 30 after narrow losses

Rob Carr

The winless Washington Wizards come in at No. 30 in SB Nation's NBA power rankings after dropping two overtime games by three combined points and slipping to 0-11 on the season.

The Washington Wizards are still searching for their first victory of 2012. At 0-11, there was no change in where the Wizards fell in SB Nation's weekly NBA power rankings.

SB Nation's Seth Rosenthal has the Wizards ranked 30th once again in his power rankings after a week of three narrow losses.

The week started with a 96-89 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday, Nov. 29. The seven-point deficit was the most that Washington lost by all week. On Wednesday, Washington went to Atlanta and took the Hawks to overtime, ultimately losing 101-100. After the short break for Thanksgiving, the Wizards played another overtime game on Friday, this time falling to the Charlotte Bobcats, 108-106.

Instead of breaking down the Wizards overtime losses, Rosenthal jokingly warned readers about meeting Washington fans, desperate for a victory:

If you encounter any Wizards fans, take care and be prepared to defend yourself. They are stir-crazy, desperate, and quite possibly contagious.
