The NBA has released its latest power list. The first-place Milwaukee Bucks held on to the top spot from last week, while the recently unimpressive Denver Nuggets dropped out of the top five with four Eastern Conference teams. The Thunder improved the most this week (plus-3), while the Timberwolves dropped the most (-4).

The Bucks remain No. 1 in the power rankings, and they are the best team in the league at 48-19. The Bucks improved to 3-1 in four games last week, with wins over the Wizards, Magic and Nets and a loss to Golden State.

The Celtics moved up to No. 2 on the power list. They are 47-21 so far this season and are in second place in the Eastern Conference. The Celtics improved to 2-2 last week, winning their second straight against the Portland Trail Blazers and Hawks after losing consecutive games.

The 45-22 Philadelphia 76ers moved up one spot to No. 3. Last week, the 76ers had a 1-for-4 record against the Pacers, Timberwolves, Trail Blazers and Wizards. Harden and Embiid, the two biggest stars of the team, are in great shape.

The Denver Nuggets dropped to No. 4, with a 46-22 record. The Nuggets fell to 1-3 last week, losing to the Bulls, Spurs and Nets in a three-game losing streak after a win over the Raptors.

The Cleveland Cavaliers moved up to No. 5, with a 43-27 record. Last week, the Cavaliers went 3-1 in four games against the Celtics, Heat and Hornets.

Rounding out the top 10 are the Kings, SUNS, Knicks, Grizzlies and Clippers.

The Warriors, Nets, Mavericks, Heat, Timberwolves, Hawks, Thunder, Lakers, Pelicans and Raptors rank 11th through 20th.

The Jazz, Wizards, Bulls, Pacers, Trail Blazers, Magic, Hornets, Rockets, Spurs and Pistons rounded out the top 30.
