Another competitive week for the OKC Thunder without the wins to show for it. Let’s see where they rank in week two of my NBA power rankings.

With the second week of NBA action in the books, fans got to witness all sides of the spectrum. Teams projected to perform well such as the LA Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers continued their dominance. Philly entered week three as the only remaining unbeaten club.

Some surprising early jump start teams leveled back to expectations such as the Atlanta Hawks while others continued to impress and surprise like the Phoenix Suns.

A few teams who were projected to be a factor this season and got off to terrible starts (Sacramento Kings and Indiana Pacers) found their legs and registered better efforts.

The current best quote in the business — Joel Embiid who promised he was over the trash talk (maybe) at season start broke that pact in a big way delighting many in the process (no pun intended).

Undoubtedly the news of week two was the injury to Stephen Curry who suffered a broken hand and subsequently will miss at least three months. With less than 10 games played in the 2019-20 season, one of the safest bets is the team who made five straight trips to the NBA Finals will be lottery bound.

As for the OKC Thunder, they continue to impress with their compete level, pushing every opponent although the record doesn’t reflect that effort.

For those interested in where pundits ranked all the teams and the OKC Thunder that information is located on the final slide. With that, it’s time to serve up my week two NBA power rankings.
