We're not sure how a team goes 4-1, posting two wins over the Eastern Conference's top five seeds (one being their potential first-round playoff opponent, no less) and survives its lone back-to-back-to-back of the season, then drops two spots, but that's what the Boston Celtics did in this week's ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings:

Curator Marc Stein offers only praise in his brief note on the C's: "With all the focus on Rondo's diming, Boston's suffocating team D, Ray Allen's acceptance of a bench role and the unexpected contributions from A-Bradley and Stiemsma, not enough has been said about KG, who quietly has served up six of his seven 20-and-10 games this season just since the All-Star break." The Celtics were leapfrogged by the Los Angeles hoopsters (both the Clippers and Lakers).
