Celts top Nets, lead East with one game left

Celts top Nets, lead East with one game left

But if they lose, and the Jazz wins at home against San Antonio, they will be the ones hosting the series. The teams split their regular-season series, 2-2.

April 12, 2017; Boston, MA, USA; Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas (4) celebrates in the final moments of the Boston Celtics 112-94 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden.

It doesn't matter how both teams got here, they're here.

Pacers 104, Hawks 86: Paul George finished with 32 points and 11 rebounds, Jeff Teague added 19 points and IN clinched a playoff spot. And the Cavs may feel confident in their chances against the Celtics on the road after last week's beatdown. The good news for the Celtics is that the Bulls haven't been as good an offensive rebounding team since trading Taj Gibson (they rank 18th in offensive rebounding percentage at 23.8 percent since the break) as they were before the trade (they ranked at 28.4 percent second prior to the break). Despite being the one seed, the Cavaliers are still the favorites to come out of the East and to go back to the National Basketball Association finals. To have that much control over their own destiny, with a pathetically easy schedule, and still end up in the final playoff spot is a flawless example of this year's Bulls.

Woman Attacked by Man With a Hammer Over a Snapchat Post
The victim checked herself in at Progress West Hospital on April 17, but asked hospital officials not to involve law enforcement. Police say that at one point, he stopped, retrieved a hammer from the trunk, and hit the woman with the hammer as he drove.

The C's then pulled away with their game-ending blitz, spearheaded by the defense of Marcus Smart and Green's hot hand.

Either scenario for the Celtics would be favorable to win a round.

The difference isn't necessarily noticeable in the first round. Their strong record did not indicate how average a team they were.

This young Celtics core, helmed by Thomas, has been eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in each of the past two seasons. Stevens may agree with this statement as well. If not, then we'll do it over and over again 'til somebody is there if I'm beat.

Donald Trump, Patriots blast New York Times over White House photos
The picture with Trump showed both staircases empty while the 2015 photo with Obama appeared seemingly packed with players. The Super Bowl Champions visited the White House to meet the President, which is customary after a Super Bowl win.

Despite winning the top seed, the Celtics are not the favorites to win the East, and frankly, it's not even close.

With that being said, this post-season will not be a total failure regardless of the outcome. But you can't take him out the game and think that you can win. In addition to this, Thomas will learn more about how to win in the playoffs, which is something he has yet to do.

"It's weird playing against him on the other side, but playoff time is when he really brings it", said Rondo's former teammate, Avery Bradley. If the Celtics can make it to the conference finals, the Cavaliers will most likely be there to greet them.

The Heat beating the Cavs keeps them alive in the playoff race, though the Bulls also won to maintain the eighth and final spot. The Celtics trailed for most of the first three-quarters before taking over in the fourth, a habit they have certainly developed this season.

Gunman shoots police officers in Paris; ISIS takes credit
Two of the main candidates, conservative Francois Fillon and centrist Emmanuel Macron, cancelled planned campaign stops Friday. Trump tweeted hours after a gunman shot dead a policeman and wounded two others on the world-famous Champs Elysees boulevard.

"When I played on the 1986 Celtics and when we were around the 2008 Celtics - two championship teams that were better than this team today, of course - those teams struggled in the first round".
