|Celtics No. 9.|
The 11-9 C's are rated sixth in the East, behind No. 3 Miami (12-6), No. 4 Chicago (11-6), No. 6 Cleveland (13-7), No. 7 Indiana (12-7) and No. 8 Toronto (12-9). Immediately following the Celtics at No. 10 and No. 11 are Charlotte (11-8) and Atlanta (13-9).
After No. 1 Golden State (22-0) and the No. 2 Spurs (17-4), eight of the next nine squads are from the Eastern Conference (Oklahoma City is No. 5 at 12-8).
Don't be surprised if this is Boston's high-water mark for a while, as the men in green face a brutal upcoming schedule that features five of the aforementioned teams in seven games.
