Default ESPN Power Rankings: Raps 23rd, 11th in East

Dropped down one spot (overall, as well as within the conference). Here's Stein's take:

While true that you've got to be realistic about sample sizes after just three games, Kyle Lowry is certainly validating Toronto's trust by promptly tying the club record for the most consecutive 20-point, five-rebound, five-assist games in his first three outings. Can't do much more.
For reference, in the actual standings, we're tied for 11th in the conference at 1.5 games behind the leading Knicks, Magic, and Bucks (whom Stein picked as the 4th best team in the L - so it's especially hard to take the rest of the rankings seriously this week).

The two teams we narrowly lost to - Indiana and Brooklyn - rank 9th and 14th, respectively; the Wolves are right behind us at 24th.

Fair for now I suppose. Once this team brings it together and we get off of the road then things will pick up. To freak out at this point is laughable.

Well, they're on a .333 pace and have proved nothing so far

if we can be at or near .500 by the end of this tough beginning stretch, my money is on playoffs, barring any main injuries
