The San Antonio Spurs, but the razor-est of razor-thin margins, has climbed to the top of the HoopsHabit.com NBA Power Rankings this week.

The Spurs, who move up two spots from No. 3, replace the Oklahoma City Thunder, who slid down to No. 2 after splitting four games last week.

But the team with the most upward mobility this week is the Brooklyn Nets, who moved up five spots to No. 20 after a 4-0 week that included ending the Golden State Warriors’ 10-game winning streak on Wednesday night.

The Atlantic Division is also home to the biggest fall in the rankings this week. The Boston Celtics stumbled six places down to No. 25 after an 0-5 week.

Here’s a quick look at the NBA Power Rankings, or you could check out the slides for each team:

When citing team statistics (which come from NBA.com), any team that is in the top or bottom five of the league for the last seven days will be noted. Player stats are also just for the last week.
