NBA Power Rankings, Week 20: I Have the Power!

New, comment


The Thunder have just finished off a four game stretch of playing some of the worst teams in the league at a time when those teams are least likely to play hard. The Thunder are still looking for a few more season-significant wins, and a win against the Heat tonight would be a great place to get it. Also, the Denver Nuggets are hot on their trail, currently only four games back for the division lead. The Thunder must continue their winning ways if they want to hold onto the 4-seed.
