In Week 23 of HoopsHabit’s NBA Power Rankings, the Oklahoma City Thunder are starting to finally look like dark horse title contenders.
Welcome to HoopsHabit.com’s Week 23 NBA Power Rankings! We’ll be counting down from 30 to 1, as we break down the last week in the NBA and where each team stands as we move forward.
By now, everyone knows the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs are having historically successful seasons, but what about the third-in-commands in the West, the Oklahoma City Thunder?
Though they’re nowhere near as formidable as their historic overlords, the Thunder seem to be rounding into form at the right time. With two of the best five players in the league on their roster, OKC is starting to look like a dangerous 3-seed out West.
Meanwhile, in the East, Cleveland’s ongoing implosion has given rise to a number of possible challengers, including the Raptors, Heat, Celtics and Hornets.
We will be updating every Tuesday, so scroll through all of the rankings to find out where your favorite team winds up in Week 23 as we take a look at the last week of action.
