Dana Barros wore #13 in his second stint with Boston.
ESPN's weekly Monday edition of the Marc Stein NBA power rankings is out, and the Celtics have moved up four more spots from last week, now at #13. Looking at the teams above them, one could argue Boston should be as high as #9 this week. The C's torched #12 Portland on Nov. 30th, just handled the #11 Rockets on Friday, blew out the #10 Nets on Christmas Day, and won at #9 New York without Rajon Rondo a week ago.
Boston's next 3 contests are all at home; tonight against Charlotte, Wednesday vs. New Orleans, and Friday the Bulls come to town. Sunday the Celtics head to Detroit, but still a very winnable game. If the C's can run the table this week and extend their streak to 9 straight, we should see some major movement in the rankings next Monday.
