The Celtics continue their roller coaster ride through the ESPN.com NBA power rankings, climbing four spots this week to No. 14. Writes curator Marc Stein: "The Celts survived their eight-game trip with monster wins in Atlanta and Milwaukee to go 4-4 and bump their record since the All-Star break to 11-5. Rest assured that Philly, despite beating Boston twice at home, is fretting about holding off its old friends from Beantown for the division title with just six home games left."
