Power rankings: C's climbing again
On the heels of a four-win week, the Boston Celtics climbed three spots to No. 15 in this week's ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings. Boston will have a chance to shimmy even further with its next two opponents the two teams in front of them (Houston at 14, Philadelphia at 13). Writes curator Marc Stein: "There are two ways to look at that ridiculous Rondo stat line that I was lucky enough to witness in person: (1) Trading someone with that sort of stat-stuffing ability is pure lunacy; (2) The fact that Boston is even pondering the prospect of trading Rondo tells you what a, um, challenge managing him must be."
