NBA power rankings 2012: 76ers drop after rough week

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

After a 1-3 week, Philadelphia dropped in the latest NBA power rankings.

Last week was a rough one for the Philadelphia 76ers. Not only did they lose staring point guard Jrue Holiday to a sprained foot, but they also went 1-3, including three-straight losses. Now, as a result, the Sixers dropped in the latest NBA power rankings.

Philadelphia fell four spots in SB Nation's latest power rankings, dropping from No. 14 to No. 18. While SB Nation's Seth Rosenthal said the Sixers haven't looked as bad as some expected they would without Holiday, they are still 0-2 without him in the lineup.

The 76ers dropped even further in NBA.com's latest power rankings. Philadelphia fell five spots and are now No. 20. While last week was rough, NBA.com's John Schuhmannn said it won't get any easier. Of the Sixers' next 11 games, 10 will be on the road.

ESPN.com's Marc Stein ranked Philadelphia No. 21 in his latest power rankings, a drop of three spots from last week. On the positive side, Stein noted that Evan Turner is currently one of four players averaging at least 15 points, seven rebounds and four assists per game.
