The Golden State Warriors are amazing. But while they've been casually dominating the league over the first five weeks, some other cool storylines have developed, too.

Sure, the Cavaliers have held the top spot in the East through much of the year, but the rest of the conference has actually held its own -- unlike in years past. Ten of the 15 teams sit above .500 enter play on Dec. 3, including the Indiana Pacers, who at 12-5, have reestablished themselves as a legit factor in the East.

Paul George's return to stardom has been the primary catalyst -- and it's been really fun to watch. George is averaging career highs in points (27.4), assists (4.4) and rebounds (8.2). Over his last four games, he's averaged 35.8 points on 50.6 percent shooting, including 56.8 percent from three-point range.

Indy's start has been encouraging, but how high does it put them in this week's edition of our power rankings? Click through the gallery above to find out, and watch the video below to learn more about one of Indiana's x-factors.
