NBA Power Rankings, Week 22: I Have the Power!

The Thunder continue their roll through the subterranean teams of the league, checking in with a 11-2 record for the month of March. The Raptors loss still stings, but a convincing win against the Trail Blazers soothes the wounds slightly and the Thunder avoided a let-down loss to the Warriors. Hold fast, because the next few weeks to close out the season will be an excellent test in the team's day-to-day focus. The team is assured of a playoff spot, but now they have to prove that every game matters, no matter what the situation is.
