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

The Thunder beat the Lakers, Bulls, and Heat, and we rejoice. The Thunder lose to the Grizzlies, Heat, and Pacers, and there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth. The truth likes somewhere in between (I think that's a song lyric).

From Around the League:

SOURCE RANKING (last) COMMENT
SB Nation 2 (1) Thunder strong despite 3 slip-ups. They still look better than Miami.
ESPN - Hollinger 1 (3) Playing great defense does wonders in Hollinger's rankings.
ESPN - Stein 2 (1) Russell Westbrook played sub-par basketball last week in 3 losses.
NBA.com - Schuhmann 3 (1) What a difference a week makes.
NBA.com - Aldridge 4 (2) First 3 game losing streak of the season.
Sports Illustrated 2 (1) OKC has all the tools needed to play suffocating defense, and it looks like they're starting to have fun getting stops.
ProBasketballTalk 4 (1) Sometimes OKC still looks like a young team learning how to win. Well, yeah.
HoopSpeak 2 (1) Harper is still concerned about lack of offensive balance, especially in the post.
Hoopsworld 3 (1) Bad week for the Thunder.
