The Celtics retired No. 17 for John Havlicek.
In Marc Stein's weekly NBA power rankings for ESPN.com, the Celtics now find themselves at a season-high No. 17.  Boston played only one game last week, a shocking 89-88 victory over the East-leading Hawks.  The win was enough to launch the C's up three spots from their previous rank of No. 20.

Boston (20-31) is directly behind the No. 16 Pelicans (27-26) and only two places in back of the No. 15 Wizards (33-21).  The Celtics are also ahead of all five other teams competing for the seventh and eighth playoff seeds in the Eastern Conference--the No. 18 Pacers (21-33), No. 19 Hornets (22-30), No. 20 Pistons (21-33), No. 21 Heat (22-30) and the No. 22 Nets (21-31).

Stein notes Boston is 7-5 in its past 12 games.
