Power Rankings: C's up to No. 6
The Boston Celtics bumped up one spot to No. 6 in this week's ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings. The only Eastern Conference foes in front of them are Miami (3) and Chicago (4). Writes curator Marc Stein: "Seems like forever ago now that the Celts lost five straight to limp into the All-Star break. Ray Allen is figuring out his new bench gig, Rajon Rondo has topped 10 assists in 17 consecutive games and Boston is 17-7 since the break, good for a three-game Atlantic lead (and the No. 4 seed that goes with it) with 10 to go."
