NBA Rankings, Week 10: I Have the Power!

In the Thunder's first week back out of the All-Star break, they won two games they could have lost, lost to a team that they should have beaten, and beat a team that always beats them. Even so, 30-8 isn't too bad.

From Around the League:

SOURCE RANKING (last) COMMENT
SB Nation 2 (3) Turnovers still a long-standing issue for OKC.
ESPN - Hollinger 3 (3) Still 3rd, but OKC has played a more difficult schedule than both the Heat and Bulls.
ESPN - Stein 3 (2) Kevin Durant finally had a breakout game against the Magic.
NBA.com - Schuhmann 2 (2) Thunder need to finish at the rim better in order to compensate for turnovers.
NBA.com - Aldridge 2 (3) Turnovers sank the Thunder against the Hawks.
Sports Illustrated 2 (2) James Harden made all the right plays in the win against the Mavericks.
ProBasketballTalk 2 (2) Late game defense is making up for some still rudimentary end-game play calling.
HoopSpeak n/a (1) n/a
Hoopsworld 2 (2) Hawks halted seven game winning streak.
Behind the Basket 2 (3) Hawks loss shouldn't be held too costly against Thunder.
FoxSports 2 (3) Durant/Westbrook in one conference, LeBron/Wade in the other.
Covers 3 (3) Thunder injuries have not slowed them down too much.
CBS Sports 2 (3) Defense is carrying the team for stretches.
Bleacher Report 2 (2) Durant has raised all aspects of his game this season.
Black Sports Online 2 (2) Thunder host another run of winnable games.
SheridanHoops 3 (2) Next 10 of 12 are games at home. Thunder can use this stretch to put the West out of reach.
