If there were red warning lights and a siren attached to the FOX Sports NBA Power rankings, they would be going off right now.While the very top teams remained unchanged from last week — the top nine virtually unchanged — there are several places lower on the grid where power surges are causing significant disruptions.The Houston Rockets, living up to their name, have soared into the postseason picture. As of Mar 1, they looked lottery-bound, seven games out of the last play-in tournament berth with the Utah Jazz in front of them. Their overall statistics and performance suggested they were better than their record — 25-34 — but that didn’t mean anything as far as extending their season.Until their schedule turned a little more favorable.Home and aways with both the Wizards and Spurs and six out of 11 games against lottery-bound teams has resulted in a 10-1 run that has vaulted them over the Jazz and made them a threat to unseat one of the current play-in teams. Losing center Alperen Sengun five games into the recent stretch has not slowed them down in the least. Going 3-0 last week while the Golden State Warriors lost three of four now has the Rockets one game away from the last ticket to the play-in tournament and directly behind the Warriors in the power rankings.The New Orleans Pelicans are applying the same pressure to the Los Angeles Clippers. As of Feb. 1 the Clippers were third in the West, a mere two games out of the top spot and beating the Celtics and Thunder by double digits. But since Feb. 7 they are 10-10, which includes their most recent embarrassing home loss, this one to Philadelphia. The Pelicans have exploited that mediocrity and a favorable schedule of their own to close within a half-game and are threatening to enter the power ranking’s top five for the first time this season.The sparking wires in the East can be found in Cleveland, where the Cavaliers have lost 3 in a row and six of their last eight, allowing both the surging New York Knicks and Orlando Magic to close on them. The Cavs, who enjoyed a brief stint as the power ranking’s No. 1 team, have to hope they find their groove again before the seventh-place Miami Heat do or they could slip all the way into the play-in tournament after appearing at the All-Star break to be a lock to host a first-round series.NBA Power RankingsBoston CelticsDenver NuggetsMilwaukee BucksOklahoma City ThunderMinnesota TimberwolvesNew Orleans PelicansDallas MavericksNew York KnicksOrlando MagicSacramento KingsLA ClippersPhoenix SunsLos Angeles LakersIndiana PacersMiami HeatGolden State WarriorsHouston RocketsCleveland CavaliersPhiladelphia 76ersChicago BullsAtlanta HawksUtah JazzSan Antonio SpursBrooklyn NetsPortland Trail BlazersMemphis GrizzliesCharlotte HornetsWashington WizardsToronto RaptorsDetroit PistonsRic Bucher is an NBA writer for FOX Sports.
