Power Rankings: C's drop to No. 27
The Boston Celtics dropped a spot to No. 27 in this week's ESPN.com NBA Power Rankings.
Writes curator Marc Stein: "Not much to see with the Celtics these days beyond fixating on Rajon Rondo's progress. Boston's home win on Super Sunday over Orlando was another step, with Rondo shooting 5-for-7 from outside the paint after entering the game 8-for-32 on such shots since returning from ACL surgery."

The Celtics remain firm at No. 4 in the latest ESPN Insider Tank Rank.
Addressing Boston's trade potential, curator Chad Ford writes, " If the Celtics get a great offer for Rondo -- he's going to have to start playing more like he did on Sunday versus the Magic (19 points, 10 assists, 6 rebounds) -- I believe he will be traded. If they can't get a great offer for him, anything and everything else is on the table -- Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, young guys such as Kelly Olynyk, even their lottery pick. But as always [Danny] Ainge is going to drive a hard bargain."
