The San Antonio Spurs, fresh off assuring themselves of a .600 or better winning percentage for an NBA-record 17th consecutive season, are the new No. 1 in ESPN.com's weekly NBA Power Rankings in perhaps the easiest decision that the rankings committee (of one) has had in months.

Having stretched its current winning streak to 13 games -- and needing just a win in Monday night's gimme against Philly to record the longest unbeaten run in the regular season since Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan joined forces in 1997-98 -- San Antonio has moved into the top spot here for the first time since Week 4 and the third time overall this season.
