The Celtics stared down the challenge of a grueling West coast road trip and came out on top of the Atlantic standings. They are hot off their best month in a long time are ready to take on all challenges. Well, get ready, because a lot of challenges still await them. For one thing, they'll have to face the Heat, ...a lot.

Celtics could be a Heat playoff nightmare - BostonHerald.com

The Miami Heat won’t just be seeing the Boston Celtics in April, the teams essentially will spend the month as roommates. Three of the Heat’s final 16 games will be against the Celtics, with two of the Heat’s remaining six road games at TD Garden. The question is whether April will include another game or two against Boston at the start of an opening-round playoff series.

These games may or may not have any particular significance in terms of the overall seedings but they'll be a sort of litmus test for the Celtics headed into the playoffs. How they respond to this test will speak volumes about their place in the pecking order of the NBA. Throw out the records, this is about right now, who's the better team? Should be an interesting set of games.
