2012 NBA power rankings: Suns rank near the bottom of the league

There aren't too many teams below the Suns in this week's edition of the SB Nation NBA power rankings.

The bright spot so far this season for the Phoenix Suns has been their victory over the win-less Detroit Pistons, who sit at the bottom of this week's SB Nation NBA Power Rankings. The not-so-bright side for the Suns is they've lost to the Golden State Warriors and coughed up a 14-point third quarter lead to lose to the Magic last night, 115-94. Here's what Seth Rosenthal had to say about the team's performance so far:

They're not even thaaaaaat bad so far, just super flaky and unreliable, which, when you look at who's getting minutes, kind of makes sense. Regardless of context, watching Luis Scola in his new home has been fun.

Scola has certainly been doing his part. After coming over from the Houston Rockets, he's averaging 17.3 points per game so far this season, in addition to picking up an average of nine boards a contest. The Suns, sitting at 26th in the power rankings, are one spot ahead of their division rival, the Sacramento Kings.

It'll be hard for the Suns to get back on track, as they face the Miami Heat in South Beach tonight. Wednesday's tilt should be a little easier -- they travel up the East Coast to take on the Charlotte Bobcats.
