The Toronto Raptors remain at 27 in the latest edition of SB Nation's NBA Power Rankings.

The Raptors' Amir Johnson ranks fifth in Tom Haberstroh's overachiever rankings. Here's what Haberstroh had to say about Johnson:

Johnson's teams just play better with him on the floor. This season, the Raptors are 7.9 points better every 100 possessions with Johnson on the court compared to when he sits. Over the previous three seasons, Johnson's net point differential is as follows: plus-3.2 in 2009-10, plus-6.8 in 2008-09 and plus-13.0 in 2007-08.

And looking at his box score resume, it's easy to see why his impact on the scoreboard is so pronounced: Johnson is incredibly efficient with his scoring opportunities, owning the league's fourth-highest true shooting percentages at 63.8, and he's an elite offensive rebounder who gobbles up 11.8 percent of his team's missed shots, the eighth-best rate in the league. His modest per-game averages of 10.6 points and 6.7 rebounds don't fully capture his contributions on both ends of the court.

Johnson is Devin Dignam's Raptor of the Week.
