Thanks in part to the heady, steady play of Pablo Prigioni, the Knicks check in at No. 8 in ESPN.com NBA writer Marc Stein's latest Power Rankings.

The Knicks are 8-0 since Prigioni was inserted into the starting lineup. They won both home and away games against the hated Celtics last week to strengthen their hold on the Atlantic Division, and are the No. 3 Eastern Conference team in Stein's rankings.

Writes Stein: "I became quite a Pablo Prigioni fan during the Olympics -- and got irrationally excited when I heard he was coming to the NBA -- but I obviously would be lying in a big way if I dared to suggest I ever pictured him emerging as a co-catalyst with J.R. Smith to help resurrect the Knicks' season."

Question: Do you agree? Is Stein's ranking too high? Too low?
