|#17 isn't all bad...|
Two weeks ago the Celtics occupied the 15th spot in the rankings despite a 3 game skid. Last Monday Stein dropped the Celts to #19 after the loss of Rondo, even though they had just knocked off Miami without him. Despite two more blowout wins (against Sacramento and Orlando) and a solid victory yesterday over the Clippers, the 24-23 Celtics are still ranked in the bottom half of the league.
Immediately above them are the #16 Blazers with an identical record, however the Celtics torched Portland in their only meeting this season. The Lakers at 4 games under .500 (22-26) still sit at the #14 spot, but Boston will have a chance to do something about this when LA comes to town on Thursday.
