The latest ESPN Power Rankings are out and the Celtics have jumped from 28th last week to 18th this week. Amazing what a 5 game win streak will do for a team. We have the same record as the Heat who are ranked 16th. We also have the same number of wins as 5 teams ranked below us. Here is what they have to say in the little blurb that accompanies the rankings:
AI trade rumors might be messing with some teams, but they've reincarnated Jefferson and a Celts team that isn't exactly used to winning streaks.
A reincarnated Jefferson to go with a rejuvenated Tony Allen have both helped this team on their win streak in spite of being depleted by injuries. Let's hope they keep playing like they have been and that we keep winning.
