C's plummet to 10th in power rankings
Writes Marc Stein: "The schedule, with consecutive games against the Magic, Hawks and Lakers, wasn't exactly soft. But alarm bells are going to ring loudly when the Celts, no matter what injury alibis they have, go 6-11 after a 23-5 start."
The Celtics have been passed by the Bobcats, Mavericks, and even a Toronto team it's dominated this season.
Despite their struggles, the Celtics remain at No. 8 in John Hollinger's daily statistical rankings.
