The Celtics. Can clinch a playoff spot. Today.

Last night Miami lost to the Raptors, 107-104, dropping the Heat's record to 35-45.  Their best-case scenario is 37-45.  A win this afternoon would make the Celtics 38-42.  If Indiana loses to the Oklahoma City Thunder at home, the Pacers would fall to 36-44, making their best-possible record 38-44.  Boston owns the tiebreaker with Indiana.
