Top teams have suffered shock defeats over past seven days.
With the All-Star weekend fast approaching, the NBA is nearing the business end of the regular season where seeding for the playoffs begin to become more apparent.
The Indiana Pacers appear to be coasting to the best record in the league, despite a slip-up or two along the way, while the Oklahoma City Thunder are starting to pull away in the Western Conference.
Despite losses to the Washington Wizards and Orlando Magic last week, the Thunder got back on track with Kevin Durant continuing to lead the line. However, have they done enough to stay in top spot in our power rankings?
A notable mention must go to the likes of the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies who have all found their stride in recent games and are looking to cement their place in the postseason.
5. Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have gone 7-3 in their last 10 games and occupy the fourth seed in the Western Conference at the time of writing.
Now 36-18 for the season, Doc Rivers appears to have instilled the mental toughness required to win in his team as they coped well without talismanic point guard Chris Paul.
While CP3 has now returned and is back as the focal point and floor general of the team, the Clippers are only going one way in the next few months, and that is up.
4. Houston Rockets
Things look pretty comfortable in Houston, with Dwight Howard averaging 26.2 points per game and 10.8 rebounds per game as the Rockets put together a six-game winning streak.
Houston are now 35-17 for the season having gone on an 8-2 run, and remain on the heels of Portland for the third seed.
With the San Antonio Spurs struggling with injuries on a long road trip for the next week or so, expect both the Clippers and Rockets to really put the pressure on.
3. Miami Heat
Despite a shock defeat to the Utah Jazz, the Heat picked up some big wins and are 7-3 across their last 10 outings.
They remain four games behind the Indiana Pacers which will be a cause for concern as they ideally would want to top the Eastern Conference again.
However, having been through the mill over the last three years, they will know what is required of them and they look set to coast through the rest of the regular season in order to hold on to that second seed.
2. Indiana Pacers
The best overall record (40-11) and home record (25-2) in the league, along with the best defense which has allowed just 90.5 points per game.
The Pacers have been relentless for the majority of the season, although recent losses to Orlando and Portland would have irked coach Frank Vogel.
Ideally, they would perhaps want to avoid the break in the schedule for the All-Star weekend as they continue to dominate, but little will likely change when they return from New Orleans.
1. Oklahoma City Thunder
41-12 for the season, 8-2 in their last 10 and now three-and-a-half games ahead of the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference, all without star man Russell Westbrook.
Predictably, Kevin Durant has been a beast throughout, with the highlight arguably being his 41-point performance against the New York Knicks on Sunday.
Serge Ibaka and Reggie Jackson are just two of the supporting cast which has stepped up in recent games, and they look a frightening prospect for any team, particularly when they get their point guard back.
