I Have the Power! Week 9 Power Rankings

Rocky week for the Thunder.  Their big Christmas Day win was offset by a poor performance in a loss to NY and not quite having enough to beat the Mavs.  They have two very winnable games at home coming up (Nets, Hawks) before they have to trek to Texas to face the two best teams in the West, the Spurs and Mavs (again).

From Around the NBA:

    ESPN – Hollinger 7 (8) Scoring margin over the past 10 has increased.
    ESPN – Stein 9 (9) Defense still an issue, but Durant’s Christmas gift was sweet.
    NBA.com 8 (6) 11-2 record when they play at a slower pace than their team average.
    SportsIllustrated 9 (7) Free agent shooters brought in (Cook/Peterson) have not paid off.
    CBS Sports 9 (8) Fact that there’s a team in OKC is a reason NBA should contract.  Booo…
    ProBasketballTalk 5 (6) Knicks loss an anomaly due to 4 games in 5 nights. But the Mavs?
    Hoopsworld 6 (7) a knack for winning ugly.
    Hoops Karma n/a (10) n/a
    FoxSports 9 (8) Playing well, but still a few steps below the real contenders.
    Covers 10(8) Not a great week.
    SB Nation 6 (5) Quiet killer instinct, beating the teams they should.
    Dime Mag n/a (6) n/a
