Bucks sked not tough: at Hawks (may rest), vs Bulls, at Celts, vs. Magic, vs. Cavs (may rest), at Knicks, vs. Nets, at 76ers, vs. Celts.
If Heat had closed out Bucks, they would be tied for 6th right now. Instead, 7th. 1.5 up on Nets, 2 up on Pacers/Celtics, 2.5 up on Hornets.
The Nets now have sole possession of the eighth and final playoff spot in the East.
... Presuming Boston score holds, No. 7 Heat will be 1.5 games up on No. 8 Nets and 2 games behind No. 6 Bucks (who own tiebreaker).
Celtics down 29 in the 3rd quarter. If they lose, Nets will have sole possession of East’s 8th seed for the first time since January 25.
Because of the Nets win earlier, the Celtics would fall out of the playoff picture with a loss today.
Nets had a very good weekend. Upcoming week is big for playoff push.

Lakers get it done - Nets win 107-99
Hey Lakers fans, Nets are an example of a franchise that has mortgaged their future and an eighth seed at best. We don't want that.
