In this edition of the Four-Point Play, I will discuss Doc Rivers being named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month again, the importance of clinching home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, the sellout of the Celtics playoffs strips, and a radio reminder about a couple Celtics games in April.
1. Celtics coach Doc Rivers was named the Eastern Conference’s Coach of the Month yesterday. He’s the first Celtics coach to win the honor twice in one season and the second coach to win the honor twice overall.
2. Speaking of 59 wins, the Celtics will be looking for their 60th against the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night. With a win, the C’s can shrink their magic number to clinch home-court advantage throughout the playoffs down to 1.
3. The Celtics announced on Monday that all of their playoff strips sold out in about 20 minutes.
4. Celtics.com reports that the Celtics will be moved from WEEI to WRKO on the radio for the April 9 and April 16 games.
