  • By Bedouin, Day 42, 2020


1. Nashville Stars (15-5, + 7.7) (Last Week #3, + 2)
Redeemed a disappointing loss to the rising Skyhawks with 2 quick wins to end the week.

2. Las Vegas Scorpions (13-5, + 9.9) (Last Week #2, NO CHANGE)
Their streak ended at 7 vs the Rockets whilst integrating their newly acquired PG Mark Robertson.

3. Seattle Thunder (15-7, + 1.8) (Last Week #5, + 2)
Went 3-1 this week with an impressive road win against the Tritons. Current King of the North.

4. Chicago Jailbirds (12-7, + 1.8) (Last Week #1, - 3)
Back to earth a little with losses to quality opposition. The loss to the Kings would have been a surprise.

5. Kansas City Knights (11-7, + 1.0) (Last Week #6, + 1)
Broke the J’birds streak but disappointing losses to the Mustangs could hurt their playoff hopes later.

6. New York Renegades (12-8, + 4.3) (Last Week #4, - 2)
Unexpected losses to the Devils and Kings slowed their roll and pushed them out of playoff positioning.

7. Oakland Tritons (11-11, + 1.5) (Last Week #7, No Change)
They’ve had a challenging schedule but are falling way behind the pace in the NS. Are changes needed?

8. St. Louis Skyhawks (11-9, + 0.6) (Last Week #11, + 3)
Went 4-1 with impressive wins over the Rockets and Stars but the #FreeHunter campaign is starting.

9. New Orleans Hurricanes (13-11, 0.0) (Last Week #13, + 4)
Wade was phenomenal against the Thunder. Looking the best they have since opening week.

10. Los Angeles Fireballs (11-10, - 1.4) (Last Week #9, - 1)
Nice win over the Tritons but losses to the Kings and Canes will hurt their attempt to secure 2nd seed.

11. Austin Rockets (11-11, + 1.6) (Last Week #8, - 3)
Strong win over rival Scorpions but still well off LY’s form. Nyambi showing signs of slowing down.

12. Cincinnati Kings (9-11, - 1.3) (Last Week #8, + 6)
Went 4-0 this week. Playing their best ball of the season and Pace has been out of control.

13. Detroit Mustangs (8-9, + 1.5) (Last Week #10, - 3)
Pushed the Stars hard in a loss but took care of the Knights in Vickery’s best game in some time.

14. Phoenix Vultures (9-11, - 0.1) (Last Week #12, - 2)
Went 2-2. Levelling off.

15. Miami Cyclones (9-12, - 1.4) (Last Week #15, No Change)
Moved on from MRob this week and more trades may be coming as the team embraces the future.

16. Houston Lightning (8-12, - 3.0) (Last Week #16, NO CHANGE)
Win against the Tritons shows what they are capable off when all the kids hit form at the same time.

17. Atlanta Devils (10-14, - 1.4) (Last Week #14, - 3)
Great win against the Rens but immediately followed by 2 disappointing losses to the Vultures.

18. Mexico City Jaguars (7-14, - 6.1) (Last Week #17, - 1)
Took care of business against the Huskies and lost as expected to the Stars and resurgent Hurricanes.

19. Philadelphia Warriors (6-17, - 6.7) (Last Week #20, + 1)
Win over the Vults took them to 6 wins, already more than half of last year’s total.

20. Toronto Huskies (5-15, - 6.7) (Last Week #19, - 1)
Losses to the Thunder and Knights were expected but they’d be disappointed to not get closer to the Jags.
