Celtics still #18 in ESPN power rankings, surprising new #1

The weekly Marc Stein power rankings on ESPN.com are out, and for the second consecutive Monday the C's check in at #18.  Despite dropping two of three games this past week, at 13-13 Boston managed to stay ahead of the #19 Magic (12-15) and #20 Trailblazers (13-13).  But the big story is the new team at the top, the #1 ranked Clippers of Los Angeles.  The "Lob City" crew are 21-6 and in the midst of a 13 game winning streak.  I'd have to assume it's the first time LA's "other" squad has ever been considered the best team in the league.
