I Have the Power! Week 13 Power Rankings

Thunder is still .500 for the month of January with three games to go. Up next: Timberwolves, Wizards, and Heat

From Around the NBA:

SB Nation 10 (11) Defense still a weakness, but they have held their last two opponents under 100.
ESPN - Hollinger 10 (10) Scoring margin continues to rise.
ESPN - Stein 8 (7) Despite poor defense, their rebounding remains a hidden asset. 9 (7) Thunder have won 5 games in which they shot under 40%; defense may struggle, but something else is working.
CBS Sports 10 (7) Another nonsensical comment regarding Russell Westbrook vs Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker for the All-Star Game.
ProBasketballTalk 8 (5) Sober reminder - if not for the late surge against the Knicks, the Thunder would be sitting on a 4 game losing streak.
Hoopsworld 8 (7) Big time players step up to reverse a team's fortunes.
HoopsKarma 7 (5) Staying competitive against good teams, but they've lost some of that end-game mojo.
FoxSports 8 (7) Thunder missing the opportunity to widen their division lead against the Jazz.
SportsIllustrated 7 (7) Interesting insight regarding how Brooks plays the end of close games, but I think Thabo Sefolosha is more in there for his rebounding than his defense.
Covers 8 (7) Thunder 2 games over .500 at the spread this season.

Remaining rankings will be updated as they become available.
