Its hard to find a weak link in the Bucks, there was really 2 choices here, Giannis missed a week and it lead to 2 losses. I went with Zach LaVine, mainly because the Bucks haven't lost since he returned, incredible. The Bucks are going streaking!

With Mike Conley, its more a question of what could have been. He played only 1 week this season and the team won 75%, small sample but that would have Spurs leading the West.

Tony Allen was the choice here, Serge Ibaka was out 2 weeks and translated to 3 losses. Tony Allen is very under rated, he played 21 games for the Cavs, starting in 16 of them and was only a part of 3 losses.
4 (5) 74 Chi Chicago Bulls 9-3

Bulls were unstoppable early, Dewayne Dedmon goes out for 6 weeks and they came back to the pack. 2 weeks back for Dewayne Dedmon and only 1 loss, just shows how important he is to the teams success. Curry was out for 4 of those weeks, which was a double blow, yet the wins didn't come with Curry leading the team and Dewayne Dedmon on the sidelines.

Magic have been pretty healthy this year, Danny Green was the guy who stood out. He missed 2 weeks this season, and the team really struggled winning only 3 of a possible 8 games. He is a glue guy, and in the results it shows.
6 (2) 67 OKC Oklahoma City Thunder 8-4

OKC are pretty diverse, but rely heavily on their 2 PG rotation. We had 3 candidates here for the Thunder, Rubio missed week 3, lost 2 matches against winnable teams. Paul George missed 2 weeks and they only lost 2 games, Green missed 3 weeks and the team only lost 3 total games, did they really miss them? Rubio only missing the 1 week seemed to hurt more.
7 (4) 64 Cha Charlotte Hornets 8-4

Kristaps Porzingis had only missed 1 week until now, and that resulted in a couple of bad losses. He is now set to miss the remainder of the season, Its going to be a tough road from here.
8 (14) 64 Sac Sacramento Kings 8-4
Sac 106, Pho 100 W
Sac 100, Mil 115 L

The Kings has moved a few players around, so makes this a little more difficult. I went with 2 guys, Jahlil Okafor is a dominant force off the bench or in the starting lineup, and missed 5 weeks of his time at the Kings. The player that really stood out was the week Pau Gasol missed before being traded, it was the 1 week the Kings lost every match.
9 (7) 61 Hou Houston Rockets 7-5
Hou 79, Mil 96 L
Mia 85, Hou 121 W

Hou 111, GS 118 L
Hard to go past the leading MVP candidate Hassan Whiteside, in the 4 weeks Hassan was out, Houston only managed 6 wins in 16 games, Rockets are in the playoffs with Hassan in the side.
10 (11) 60 Mem Memphis Grizzlies 7-5
Cha 115, Mem 106 L

Georgios Papagiannis is incredible, I love him. Grizzlies have won 11 games and lost 15 without him. With him they have 17 games and lost only 7. That's what I call an NLL superstar.
11 (9) 57 Min Minnesota Timberwolves 7-5

Could have went a few different ways here with the TimblerWolves, Fournier was out 3 weeks, and wolves only lost 1 game and streaked. Jeff Teague stood out, missing 3 weeks before being traded, Wolves lost 5 of 12 matches. In the end the spotlight is on DeMarcus Cousins who hasnít missed a game yet, but wont play a game again this season, you just can't replace him.
12 (8) 55 NY New York Knicks 7-6
NY 117, Phi 112 W

Could have easily went for the 2 superstars here, leaned more towards Luc Mbah a Moute. The week Irving missed, Knicks dropped 3 of 5, the week Harden missed, Irving went ballistic and the Knicks won 3 of 4. Luc Mbah a Moute may have been under utilised so far this season, this will change with Ingles leaving, games Luc has played, Knicks have won 18 of 29 and the games he has started they won 3 of 4.
  13 (13) 55 Utah Utah Jazz 7-5

Hou 101, Utah 111 W
Since being traded over from the Pistons Trevor Ariza has been an important member to the team. With Ariza starting, the Utah have been a top team in the west, winning 68%. In the last 2 weeks with Ariza out, they have only managed to win 50% of games.
14 (20) 54 Bkn Brooklyn Nets 7-6

Was between Larry Nance Jr and Danilo Gallinari, Brooklyn had a terrible start to the season and this could have been related to Larry Nance Jr being out the 1st 4 weeks. Danilo Gallinari was seen as an important member, and only ended up playing 2 weeks for the Nets before being traded, he was used as a spark off the bench but it didn't translate to wins.
15 (12) 54 Bos Boston Celtics 7-5
Bos 111, Ind 101 W
NY 113, Bos 107 L

Kevin Durant, the depth that Boston has and the pieces that GM JMac has put around the superstar, relies on the man being on the court. Durant has been out of action 3 weeks this season, and in those 12 games, only 4 have been wins.
16 (21) 50 LAC LA Clippers 6-6
LAC 117, NO 90 W

DAngelo Russell, more based on his potential and breakout capability this year. LA Clippers have their starting point guard back after 8 weeks on the sidelines, and the results are starting to follow.
17 (15) 49 Dal Dallas Mavericks 6-7
Dal 119, Den 99 W

Utah 99, Dal 119 W
Hard to go past their best player, Paul Millsap in the side, Dallas was winning 58% and good playoff side. Remove him and the team is only winning 34% of the time.
18 (10) 48 Tor Toronto Raptors 6-5
Tor 117, SA 124 L

Tor 113, NO 100 W
The Raptors are currently fighting hard to be in the playoffs, with Rajon Rondo out of the side, they have only managed 2 wins in 3 weeks. Dunn may have taken his starting position, but this shows the importance of Rondo to the team.
19 (17) 34 Atl Atlanta Hawks 5-7

Markelle Fultz, cant go past the 1st pick in the draft. Hawks have been a surprise packet this year, fighting for a playoff birth, with Fultz who was a dead eye in college, incredibly good passing ratings, this team could have taken the next step.
20 (16) 27 Den Denver Nuggets 4-8

Jonathan Isaac, it could have been easy to say John Wall, he missed 2 weeks and will be on the sidelines for the near future. Isaac has only played 2 weeks this season, a high draft pick. The interesting fact, in the games he played, Denver won 75%, including the week he started.
21 (18) 27 Ind Indiana Pacers 4-8

Indiana has had a tough season, Blake might get his doubters, but it shows how important he is. With Blake on the sidelines for 4 weeks, the Pacers only managed 4 wins (23%), they are winning 40% of the time with him on the court.
  22 (22) 26 Mia Miami Heat 5-7

JJ Redick has missed only 3 weeks this season, but those weeks have been rough for the Heat winning only 4 matches out of a possible 12. When JJ is on the court, they have won 18 and lost 19 putting them in final playoff spot in the East.
23 (30) 24 GS Golden State Warriors 4-8

Hou 111, GS 118 W
Warriors have had 25 players lineup for them this season, so was hard to identify someone that stood out. Joffrey Lauvergne didn't start the season until week 3, recently he has became the starting Center and exactly the type of player the Warriors have been needing. In the 1st week of the season, Warriors won a game, while losing on the boards by 18 rebounds, this isn't sustainable, and it showed in the second week when the Warriors didn't get a win.
24 (25) 24 LAL LA Lakers 4-8
LAL 85, OKC 106 L
LAL 101, Mil 113 L

GS 101, LAL 104 W
8 weeks in, Lakers were a playoff team in the West, Nikola Vucevic was destroying teams on a nightly basis. 4 weeks later, Vucevic has been nursing a hand injury and the Lakers have only managed 4 wins without him.
25 (28) 24 Phi Philadelphia 76ers 4-8
NY 117, Phi 112 L
Phi 104, Cha 114 L

Phi 101, NY 115 L
Cant really go past one of the best players in the league and the 76ers best player Kawhi Leonard. With him, 76ers would be one of the top teams in the league, he can play multiple positions. The stats dont back this up though, as normally a team mate is out in the 3 weeks Kawhi has played.
26 (23) 15 Pho Phoenix Suns 3-9

Gordon Hayward is rated the Suns best player, he could make a surprise appearance for playoffs but Suns really needed him during the season to be playing in them.
27 (24) 14 Det Detroit Pistons 3-9

Detroit Pistons was tough, they have had a crazy long injury list at times. The 2 guys I identified play the same position, which makes there loss in tandem hard to swallow, Jabari Parker and Jon Leuer.
28 (29) 14 Was Washington Wizards 3-9

Jeremy Lin was picked up knowing he would be out for the season. Lin is exactly what the Wizards need, a leader, a play-maker, a scorer.
29 (27) -1 NO New Orleans Pelicans 2-10

I would love to say Len, he scored 38 points in the final game for the Pelicans before being traded. Since Reggie went down, the Pelicans have struggled to win a game, only winning 4 games in 4 weeks.
30 (26) -3 Por Portland Trail Blazers 1-11

Its great that the Blazers keep the upsets coming, Rudy Gay was a big part of it. The team won only 1 game in 3 weeks without him.

Week 1 · Week 2 · Week 3 · Week 4 · Week 5 · Week 6 · Week 7 · Week 8 · Week 9 · Week 10 · Week 11 · Week 12 ·

I think we would have more wins if seth curry played. We knew lin wasnt going to play, but not seth. So i think seth would be missed more.

Definitely Fultz for us, they're being so vague with him and sounds like he's not playing this year. Always next year I suppose!

Nice job man, in-depth stuff! Ariza has been a staple for us, no doubt!
