The Oklahoma City Thunder continue their run at the top of the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings. Winners of eight straight, the Thunder are making it awfully difficult for those chasing them to gain ground.
As it is, the Memphis Grizzlies, New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat round out the Top Five.
Two big risers this week are the Boston Celtics, from 15 to 9, and the Chicago Bulls, from 16 to 10.
Going the other way, the Philadelphia 76ers slip from seven to 11 and the Los Angeles Lakers continue to struggle, dropping from 12 to 16.
The Toronto Raptors continue their descent, falling to 27th, a justifiably low point for a 4-17 team.
