The Oklahoma City Thunder remain the top team in the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings, though their hold on top spot is more tenuous after splitting their last eight games.

9-2 in their last 11 games, the Miami Heat are closing in on the Thunder and are followed by Golden State, New York and Denver to round out the Top Five.

The Nuggets have climbed from 12 to five over the last three weeks, staying just ahead of the Indiana Pacers, who have gone from 13 to six over the same period of time.

Further down the rankings, the Washington Wizards have climbed from 26 to 21, showing that they're a competitive enough team when have a healthy John Wall running the point.

Chris Paul's injury plays a big part in the Los Angeles Clippers dropping from two to nine and a rash of injuries (to say nothing of losing 21 of 23) has knocked the Orlando Magic to the bottom spot, down from 21.

Following their trade for small forward Rudy Gay, the Toronto Raptors are ranked at 22, which is actually their high point for the season after being ranked 18 in the pre-season.
