The faucet drips! Marc Stein has finally released his first power rankings for the 2015-16 NBA season and we may now again sip the cool droplets of NBA goodness that trickle down.

Check out where your Boston Celtics start off the year:

14
Boston
40-42
Can't say I'm as high on 'em as our own Kevin Pelton, who likes Boston's prospects better than he likes Atlanta's. But I do see Amir Johnson and David Lee, like Isaiah Thomas before them, as difference-makers who nudge the Celts up the ladder, albeit not as spectacularly as Trader Danny Ainge hoped by now.

That's up from 26th at the onset of the 2014 season and from 27th at the start of the 2013 season.

How do you all feel about the number 14? Too high? Too low? Silly to even put stock here?
