NBA Power Rankings, Week 15: I Have the Power!

The Thunder responded from their bitter loss to the Heat by taking three in a row from the Hornets, Suns, and Jazz, three teams that will all be competing for playoff spots. If only they had not blown it against the Grizzlies, the Thunder might have found a way to match last year's nine game win streak around the same point in the season.


From Around the NBA:
