5. Oklahoma City Thunder (Previous Week: 3)
The Thunder received a glimpse of what they traded away when James Harden torched his former team for 46 points. How did the Thunder respond? By signing veteran point guard Derek Fisher. The move seems a bit obscure, especially since the Thunder have lost three of their last five games to teams with younger, quicker point guards. As good as the Thunder look, they aren’t quite as good as the team that won the Western Conference championship last season. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)
