Power rankings: C's up two spots


Despite a 2-2 week that featured losses to the 76ers and Lakers, the Celtics shuffled up two spots to No. 13 in this week's ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings. The Celtics are the sixth-ranked team in the Eastern Conference, leapfrogging the Hawks this week. Writes curator Marc Stein: "Good to see KG, Pierce, Ray and Rondo grit through all the trade talk to win six of eight. When the Celts limped into the All-Star break at 15-17, someone in the office pointed out that there hasn't been a team to finish the regular season under .500 with three future Hall of Famers since the 1992-93 Pistons."
