NBA Power Rankings 2017-18: LeBron and the Cavs Continue to seem lost

NBA Power Rankings 2017-18: LeBron and the Cavs Continue to seem lost

The Cavaliers have been here before. 

Midseason struggles, questions about chemistry and worries about the future.

This time it feels a little different, though, with a roster that was forced to be re-tooled in the offseason when Kyrie Irving wanted out.

To add another new wrinkle, we're watching LeBron's old team pass his new team that was once his old team (still following this?), in the rankings this week.

The Wizards have stayed within the top-ten for a while now, but definitely need more out of Otto Porter if they don't want to fall behind.

Oh yeah, the Warriors are still really good, beating everyone, are even better on the road than at home, and likely not leaving that top spot anytime soon.

Sorry for the spoiler.

Rodney Hood gets ejected from Wizards-Jazz game, slaps phone out of fan's hand

Rodney Hood has no interest in doing it for the 'gram. 

Hood, Utah's 4th-year guard out of Duke, was ejected mid way through the 3rd quarter of tonight's game after recieving his second technical foul of the night. 

As Hood was leaving the floor, one fan tried to stick their cell phone in his face. 

Here's how that went:

Pro tip: don't stick your phone in anyone's face, but especially don't stick your phone the face of someone who just got removed from a basketball game for being too angry. 

Here's to hoping he bought some insurance, because that phone is 100% broken.

He can add another bullet point to his resume.

The NBA announced Tuesday that Beal has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the week of Dec. 25.

The Wizards had a 3-1 record over that stretch, which included wins over the Celtics, Rockets, and the suddenly hot Bulls, who had won ten of their last 12 games. 

Beal hasn't just been doing this recently though. He's averaging career highs of 23.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists on the season.
