12. Houston Rockets (Previous Week: 14)
James Harden is having a stellar season. He is just what the Rockets needed. He is the only player on their starting roster that can create his own shot and he accepts the challenge on a nightly basis. Putting up 45 points in a win against his former team, the Thunder, Harden has helped the Rockets advance in this week’s rankings. (AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)
