Power Rankings: C's slip five spots
The Botson Celtics tumbled five spots to No. 18 in this week's ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings. Writes curator Marc Stein: "Some Friday night for Doc Rivers. First, son Austin's Duke Blue Devils get ousted from the NCAA tournament by Lehigh from the, uh, Patriot League. Then Doc's Celts, after the short trip from Oakland to Sacramento and a night off between games, absorbed a 120-95 beatdown from the Kings' collection of youth."
