NBA Power Rankings: Denver Nuggets Still A Top 10 Team

SB Nation's Tom Ziller has released his updated NBA Power Rankings, and he has the Denver Nuggets ranked as the No. 10 overall team in the NBA. Amongst Western Conference teams, Ziller has the Nuggets behind only the Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers and San Antonio Spurs, the latter of which handed the Nuggets their only loss this past week. Here is Ziller on the Nuggets:

10. Denver Nuggets 6-3 W: MIL, SAC, NO; L: SA Denver Stiffs
I refuse to believe that this version of Al Harrington is the one true version of Al Harrington. This is like The Illusionist, but with a jump-shooting big man instead of Christian Bale.

The Nuggets will face a rather easy schedule this week, playing only three games. Granted, the final game of the week, on Friday Jan. 13 is vs. the Miami Heat, but its preceded by match ups vs. the New Orleans Hornets and New Jersey Nets.
