With another five rounds behind us and five more to go until the completion of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season, Eurohoops presents the sixth edition of the Power Rankings.

As always, status, team dynamics, form and the significance of results were taken into consideration for ranking the 16 teams.

16. Anadolu Efes Istanbul

Previous ranking: 15 (-1)
Record: 6-19
At home: 4-9
Away: 2-10
Offense-defense: 76.9 ppg.-83.4 ppg.

With seven defeats in its last eight games, Anadolu Efes Istanbul is stuck in last place and it will be difficult to get unstuck. Despite the addition of Sonny Weems, the team’s offense remains one of the worst (second worst), as does its defense (third worst), and Efes also has the worst points difference (-159). Despite all this, with a schedule that includes three games against top-eight teams (vs. Khimki Moscow Region in Round 27, at Olympiacos Piraeus in Round 28 and at Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz in Round 30), Efes‘s impact on the competition can still be meaningful.
