The San Antonio Spurs refusal to lose has finally landed them in top spot in the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings. Winners of 15 straight, with a healthy roster, the Spurs have overtaken the Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder for the number one ranking.

Among teams gaining ground, the Chicago Bulls are up, from 11 to eight, and they have gone 16-6 in their past 22 games, going from a fringe playoff team to a team in line for homecourt advantage in the first round.

The Phoenix Suns looked like they had coughed up their playoff spot, only to reel off seven wins in eight games to scramble back into the eighth seed in the West. With a healthy Eric Bledsoe, the Suns are up, from 14 to nine.

An up-and-down few weeks, during which they have gone 5-5 in their past 10 games, knocks the Toronto Raptors from nine to 12, their lowest ranking in months.

More injuries contributed to the Denver Nuggets falling, from 18 to 21.
