The Oklahoma City Thunder remain at the top of the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings for the second straight week.
The Thunder, who have won eight of their last nine games overall, with six of those wins coming by a double-digit margin, haven't missed a beat this season, even after shaking up their roster by trading James Harden to Houston prior to the start of the season.
Memphis, Miami, San Antonio and New York round out the top five, a mix of expected contenders and new challengers.
Winning five of their last six games has lifted the Golden State Warriors into the Top 10, from 13 to nine, and the Indiana Pacers climbed from 23 to 19 with four wins in their last six games.
Three straight losses dropped the Denver Nuggets from seven to 14, while the Boston Celtics' up-and-down play saw them slip from nine down to 15.
The Toronto Raptors remain in 26th spot after snapping a six-game losing streak. Hard times early in the season for the Raptors.
