Weekly Power Rankings: Flip a coin between Bulls and Heat

I could go either way at the top of this list. The Miami Heat did lose to Orlando this week and the Chicago Bulls have won five in a row.

But based on overall health, I'll keep the Heat on top this week.

Let's just hope this is settled in the Eastern Conference Finals.

1. Miami Heat (20-7, Last week, 1) - L
2. Chicago Bulls (23-6 LW 2) - On a five-game winning streak in spite of injuries to key players.
3. Oklahoma City Thunder (21-6 LW, 3) - If not for a questionable call and bad goaltending call, OKC might have lost three games last week.
4. Los Angeles Clippers (17-8 LW 4) - Pulling out big wins even after losing Chauncey Billups for the season.
5. San Antonio Spurs (19-9, LW 7) - Seven-game winning streak and Manu is back!!!!
6. Philadelphia 76ers (19-9, LW 5) - Skeptics continue to wait for this team to fall apart.
7. Atlanta Hawks (18-9, LW 8) - Josh Smith should have been on the All-Star team.
8. Dallas Mavericks (17-11, LW 14) - Up-and-down season for winners of three in a row.
9. Indiana Pacers (17-10, LW 6) - Roy Hibbert is latest big man from Georgetown to make an All-Star team.
10. Orlando Magic (17-11, LW 15) - Could someone make sure Ryan Anderson is in the three-point shooting contest All-Star Weekend?
11. Houston Rockets (16-11, LW 16) - Another streaky team - Rockets have won three in a row.
12. Portland Trail Blazers (15-13, LW 10) - Two tough overtime losses, including controversial loss to the Thunder after blown goaltending call.
13. Denver Nuggets (16-12, LW 9) - Ended their five-game losing streak and Wilson Chandler wants to return after his season in China ends.

15. Memphis Grizzles (14-13, LW 17) - Marc Gasol is an All-Star. Guess that trade for his brother Pau in 2008 wasn't so lopsided in the end.
16. Boston Celtics (14-12, LW 11) - From four All-Stars last year to just one (Paul Pierce).

26. Toronto Raptors (9-19, L 27) - Last win was a big one - beating Boston.
