Open topic: Where will the Celtics finish in the East standings?

How far up the standings can the Celtics reach?

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Boston Celtics Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Celtics are riding high on a 6 game winning streak. They are up to 5th in the standings in the Eastern Conference (4 games behind the first place Raptors). They currently trail the Pacers by just a half a game and are 2 games behind both the Bucks and Sixers.

They visit the Wizards tomorrow (and who knows what to make of them from day to day or minute to minute?) and follow that up with games against the Hawks, Pistons, and Suns.

How high can they climb in the standings by the end of the season? How much ground can they make up by the end of the month?

Obviously a lot depends on how the teams above them fair as well.

So, what do you think? Give us your thoughts in the comments below.
