Let's get this. Play starters first half then rest IT & AB and maybe Horford for the second half. Greek Freak, Della punk and Middleton not with team - resting.

I understand why the Bucks are resting players for the playoffs ... can anyone explain to me the phenomenon of non-playoff teams resting their players? The Nets "resting" Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin, in a game that could decided the final playoff spot? Sacramento, Denver, New Orleans, etc., all resting players ... for November?

They don't want a bad injury like a torn acl going into the offseason, ruining the trade value of their top players. Also, they can get a good look at players they have to make a decision on for next season.

Still, it really sucks for teams fighting for playoff spots.

I feel a little for the Heat, but not too much. If they expected to make the playoffs, they would have figured out not to have a really bad start. Leaving one's destiny up to fate at this time of the year is not the prescribed path for successful NBA teams.

What about the fans that are paying money to go see their favorite team? Why isn't the team compelled to offer you some type of discount if they start $10m of athletes out of a $100m payroll. Isn't this why the NBA has minimum levels of spending?

This is why the 76ers tanking drove me nuts. It is fine for those fans that don't commit to the team by going. Those that want to support their local basketball team with hundreds of dollars per game get completely screwed.

Adam Silver is 100% right. If there are too many games, do something about it. I'd rather spend extra money per ticket to see an actual NBA game versus watching backups play 48 minutes.

It would be unforgivable to blow this opportunity.

1st. in the East? I didn't even dream of it.

Bruins playoff game tonight.

Red Sox game tonight.

Celtics game tonight.

How to watch all three games simultaneously..  :laugh:

Anyways, if a Red Sox loss guarantees a Bruins and Celtics win tonight, I'll gladly make the sacrifice.

If IT and Smart can walk they will be trying to win.   It means something to them .....a milestone they want to reach. 

I d play the game like it's a death match .....then KG is my all time fav player  ;D

Fourth!

Last game of the season, but not the last game thread! Thanks flc and a tp as ever.

Celtics win this one big time and clinch the best record in the east. Life is good.

Goooooooooooooooooooo first place Celtics!  ;D

One of my favorite Celtics teams of all time and the team that drew me into being a Celtics fan, the 1969 Celtics went into the playoffs as the 4th seed and won it all so the 4th seed is pretty good in my opinion.   TP :)
Good to know. I remember that too....which may mean that we are both approaching "ancient" in terms of age.  ;)

But a tp to keep you youthful.  ;D
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

I've decided that the magnitude of this game makes it extremely unhealthy to watch. Yet, here we are.

I do believe our playoffs hopes are more promising if we can avoid Toronto in round 2.  Doubt we steamroll anyone along the way, but a trip to the ECF seems attainable. And home court would make it all the sweeter.

Win the game, Celtics!

Watching the first half of Maine has made the waiting very productive. Now here we are, guys. 2 in the morning in Spain, let's get the first seed. I'll sleep well (though little) if we beat the Bucks.

This is one of those games that we will look back to if they are lucky enough get to the ECF.

Every playoff game for any Boston sports team is unhealthy for me to watch LOL.

Always super nervous. Feeling that way watching this Bruins game now, and will feel the same way with the Celtics soon.

IT just addressed the crowd asking them to get up "for this big playoff run we're about to have."
