BOSTON – The Boston Celtics are heading back to the postseason. With Tuesday’s win, the Celtics now own a two-game advantage over the Miami Heat for the No. 3 seed in the East.
The race to the finish should be a pretty good one for Boston over the final five weeks of the season. Boston has two more matchups with Milwaukee before the playoffs arrive – March 12 in Milwaukee and April 1 in Boston – and two more against the Heat – April 1 in Boston and April 11 in Miami. Of Boston’s eight games in April, six will come against current playoff teams.
