Rank 'Em: NBA Power Rankings

Created: January 26, 2009, 11:21 AM

Where do the Lakers rank?

Reports out of the East of the Celtics' demise are greatly exaggerated. Boston has won eight straight games, the past six by double digits, and has beaten the likes of Phoenix, Orlando and Dallas during its hot streak.

While Boston has reestablished itself as the premier team in the East, the Lakers are still the class of the West. Los Angeles has won four straight games, including a 99-85 win over the San Antonio Spurs this past Sunday.
