5. Atlanta Hawks (7): The Atlanta Hawks have won seven of their last 10 games. The success of this team relies on an inconsistent Joe Johnson.
4. Denver Nuggets (6): The Denver Nuggets six-game winning streak puts them at 14-5 which is the best 19-game start in franchise history.
3. Miami Heat (3): The Miami Heat seem to be back running on all cylinders. The big three are back and LeBron James has elevated his game once again.
2. Chicago Bulls (1): The Chicago Bulls take a step back this week and take the number two spot. Although very successful this week, the Bulls suffered a tough loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday.
1. Oklahoma City Thunder (2): The Thunder have the best record in the NBA at 16-3 and have shown this past week they deserve the number one spot in the league. They have only lost one game the past ten games and have outstanding records both on the road and on their home court.
