Power rankings: C's up to No. 7
Don't look now but the Boston Celtics have vaulted a whopping seven spots this week to land at No.7 on the ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings. Suddenly, Boston is the third-ranked team in the Eastern Conference, trailing only Chicago (3) and Miami (4). Writes curator Marc Stein: "Too good since the break -- and too dominant in the first of three remaining meetings with Miami -- to keep the Celts out of the top 10 any longer. Don't care how hard their schedule looks from here. Is there a team outside of the East's top two that you believe in more at playoff time than Doc's old-timers and Rondo?"
