The Oklahoma City Thunder are making it look easy as they continue to hold down the No. 1 spot in the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings.

It's difficult for any team to catch the Thunder, who have won 11 straight, but the Los Angeles Clippers, who have won 10 straight, have moved up from seventh to third, just behind the Memphis Grizzlies.

The defending champion Miami Heat, ranked fourth, are the only Eastern Conference team in the Top Five.

Also moving up this week, the Minnesota Timberwolves have six wins in their last eight games and are easing point guard Ricky Rubio back into the rotation; they jumped from 12th to eighth.

Winning seven of 10 and getting high level play from shooting guard Paul George lifted the Indiana Pacers from 22nd to 12th.

It's not the end of the world that the New York Knicks were thumped at home by the Houston Rockets but the absence of Carmelo Anthony was felt and that contributes to the Knicks falling from third to ninth.

Philadelphia continues to fade, losing six of eight amid some backcourt injuries, so their rank slips from 11th to 17th.

The Toronto Raptors have back-to-back wins, but injuries to Kyle Lowry and Andrea Bargnani leave them ranked 27th for the second straight week.
