NBA Rankings, Week 2: I Have the Power!

The Thunder lost two in a row last week and had us scratching our collective heads. They responded by running off four wins in a row in five days and play again tonight to have a chance at five consecutive wins and the best record in the NBA.

From Around the League:

SOURCE RANKING (last) COMMENT
SB Nation 2 (n/a) OKC debuts at #2 after a string of wins in the past week.
ESPN - Hollinger 2 (7) The Thunder make a huge jump in Hollinger's offensive efficiency ratings, but defense is still in the bottom 3rd.
ESPN - Stein 3 (3) OKC won back-to-back-to-back, which puts them in unique company.
NBA.com 4 (2) Thunder drop two spots after losing to the Trail Blazers last week.
Sports Illustrated 3 (3) James Harden is the perfect bench backcourt mate for Reggie Jackson to pair with in order to keep the Thunder rolling.
ProBasketballTalk 4 (2) High expectations for when Kevin Durant heads to Knicks-land.
HoopSpeak 3 (n/a) Thunder are great offensively, but it masks their defensive shortcomings.
Hoopsworld 3 (3) It's Reggie Jackson time.
Behind the Basket 2 (2) Expectation that the loss of Eric Maynor will have a big impact on the Thunder's progress.
FoxSports 3 (2) Thunder are chasing the #1 seed in the playoffs.
Covers 5 (2) Thunder's pre-season hype has left them 2-5 ATS and overvalued.
