Celts Edge Closer to Clinching East’s Top Seed

It’s safe to say the Celtics have their eyes looking forward to the playoffs now. With only 8 games remaining, the Celtics have a comfortable 6-game lead over the Detroit Pistons for the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.

The Celtics improved to that 6-game lead thanks to a 106-92 win over the Bulls in Chicago. Ray Allen scored a team-high 22 points and Kevin Garnett added 20 points and 7 rebounds as the Celts got their league-leading 59th win. Yes, just one away from 60.
Rajon Rondo had another nice game, netting 9 points to go with 10 assists and 3 steals. He shot an efficient 4-5 while matched up against Kirk Hinrich. The former Kansas star didn’t fare so well, finishing with 9 points and 5 assists while shooting an ugly 3-9 from the floor.

LSU alum Tyrus Thomas finished with a game-high 24 points and 7 rebounds. His former Tigers teammate, Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis, finished with 2 points and 3 rebounds in just 5 minutes of play. Davis hasn’t played much in the 2nd half of the season due to the emergence of Leon Powe off the bench. Powe finished with 6 points.

Next up on the C’s cupcake schedule for the rest of the regular season is Larry Bird’s Pacers. He won’t be walking through that door, but that still would’ve been awesome if he did…
