Who knows where the Celtics will wind up at this point? I sure don't. They have been hot up until recently but they have a brutal schedule and their legs may have a problem keeping up a good pace. And then there's the issue of not being able to predict what other teams are going to do.
The Atlantic crown comes with the conference’s fourth seed due to a silly rule which rewards winners of divisions that really don’t mean anything — in this season, with Miami and Chicago clearly a step ahead of everyone else, that fourth seed especially matters. Yet Boston leads the Sixers by just one game, an absurd schedule awaits the Celtics this month, and those damned Knicks are now just 2.5 games back. The Celtics are three games behind the Pacers for the third seed, a deficit that could be impossible to make up considering that A) the Hawks and Pacers also have better records than the Celtics in the race for the third seed, and B) the Celtics schedule is scary enough to make a bobble-head doll stop nodding.
So it is clear that nobody KNOWS what's going to happen. So what do you THINK is going to happen?
