2012 NBA power rankings: 76ers slide to No. 15 after 2-2 week

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Philadelphia 76ers went 2-2 over the last week and slipped to No. 15 in the lastest SB Nation NBA power rankings.

The Philadelphia 76ers moved to 8-6 on the season, splitting their four games this week. After a 2-2 week, the Sixers were jumped but a number of teams in the latest SB Nation NBA power rankings, dropping six spots down to No. 15.

Philadelphia started the week with a win at home over the Toronto Raptors, before losing their next two to Cleveland and Oklahoma City. The Sixers snapped the brief losing streak with a 104-101 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday.

After the 76ers up-and-down week, SB Nation's Seth Rosenthal wrote:

The Sixers continue to defend decently enough to keep games competitive without Andrew Bynum (and all signs suggest they'll have to keep doing that for a while). On occasions when a Sixer aptly assumes Bynum's role as offensive centerpiece, they have enough to win those games. Jrue Holiday's been the guy most likely to step up.

Holiday led Philadelphia in their most recent victory, scoring a game-high 33 points against Phoenix.

The Sixers are back in action on Tuesday, Nov. 27, hosting the Dallas Mavericks at 7 p.m. ET.
