Boston Celtics clinch top seed in Eastern Conference

The Bulls manhandled the Brooklyn Nets 112-73 to help punch their ticket to the postseason. "I've never been a No. 1 seed". "I know it's going to come at some point and time". Gerald Green and Jaylen Brown scored 18 and 10 points respectively, including some big dunks as Boston pulled away late in the fourth quarter.

The Boston Celtics will enter the NBA Playoffs as the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

They will take on the Chicago Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.

Milwaukee travels to Toronto on Saturday for Game 1 of their best-of-seven series.

Spencer Hawes and Michael Beasley each had 15 points for Milwaukee, who had already claimed the sixth seed in the East following a Hawks victory Tuesday.

"For three quarters, it was a ballgame".

It consists of an open court leading into a rectangular hall, a corridor and inner chamber, the Ministry of Antiquities said. "The excavation is ongoing", AFP reports that Mostafa Waziri, the head of the Egyptian archeological mission, said.

"I feel very confident that we've got a good run in us", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said.

With only two games left in the regular season, Boston and Cleveland both have a record of 51-29.

Like they have been doing all season, the Celtics took advantage of their fellow title contenders' losses and the number one seed in the East is now in their hands.

Still, the Celtics coach appreciates those accomplishments.

"I don't gamble with him on the golf course; I'm not that stupid", he said. "But that wasn't the deciding factor in any moves". Further, he's been the best fourth quarter scorer in the league, providing important points down the stretch of most games. Isaiah Thomas, who was scoreless until then, had 10 of them, including eight straight.

Butler said he expects to be physical with Thomas, but he also understands that the Bulls have to try to keep the rest of the Celtics in check as well. Afterward, he said he was "100 percent". I think we have a special group. But not just me, it's going to be a team effort.

Windies record highest ODI run chase in win over Pakistan
Set 309 to win, West Indies reached the target with six wickets down and one over to spare at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Nurse enjoyed success amid the carnage, the off-spinning all-rounder finishing with his best ODI figures of four for 62.

Stevens said the sight gave him a bit of a scare. "It says 1-8 but I think it's going to be a little tougher than that".

Nader, whom the Celtics selected 58th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft, averaged 21.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 40 games for the Red Claws this season.

Butler is aware he won't be tasked to guard Thomas the entire time they face on the court, but if he had his way, the Bulls star is confident with his ability to stay on the Celtics gunner 'the whole game'. This year, the Celtics look to build upon this and win a round, or potentially two, in the playoffs. But what are the chances of each team obtaining the 7 or 8 seed? Totals 37-84 14-17 94.

Boston's Avery Bradley scored 18 points, Smart had 13 points and six assists, Jae Crowder 11 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and Kelly Olynyk 11 points and six boards. Boston will see a lighter load, taking on the National Basketball Association worst Brooklyn Nets before finishing up against the Greek-Freak led Milwaukee Bucks.

"The 5'9" Thomas is in the midst of a spectacular, career-best campaign, averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists.
