NBA Power Rankings 2012: Celtics Breach Top 15 With Big Week

With a big four game win streak heading into Monday, the Boston Celtics have caught the eye of many people around the league. With trade rumors and uncertainty surrounding them, the C's have climbed into the first half of many NBA power rankings around the league.

SB Nation's Tom Ziller has apparently taken notice of the Celtics win streak, and has put them as his No. 13 team in the league in his weekly NBA Power Rankings. More from Ziller:

The opponents didn't exactly constitute a murderer's row, but Boston got the job done this week. They will be studying Rajon Rondo's Sunday triple-double in Ancient Civ classes in the future. (via SB Nation)
