Celtics Clinch Number 1 Seed In East
The Boston Celtics have clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference, thanks to their 112-94, regular season finale win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Wednesday night.
The win moved the C's record to a conference-best 53-29, which actually puts them two games up on the second seeded Cleveland Cavaliers who dropped their final regular season game.
The road to the NBA Finals now goes through Boston, at least for as long as the C's stay in the postseason.
Boston will host the Chicago Bulls, when the playoffs open on Sunday night. Chicago sneaked in as the conference's eighth and final seed with a win in their final game of the campaign.
