The Nets' improvement this past week is moving them up big in the power rankings. NBA.com has the Nets jumping four spots to #16, with John Schuhmann pointing out points-in-the-paint scoring. Since Josh Boone and Sean Williams joined the starters, it's gone from 31.3 per to 41.3. SI's Marty Burns makes the same leap of faith, to #17; CBS' Tony Mejia pushes them up two, to #15. The Sun's John Hollinger has the Nets up one...but only to #21 while ESPN's Marc Stein is unchanged at #19.
