A night after resting a number of key starters but still beating a star-less Miami team, the Celtics look to clinch homecourt in the first round of the playoffs when they host the Bucks in the teams' season finale.

Playoffs. While the Bucks turn their attention to the draft, the Celtics still have playoff seeding on their mind. While Doc Rivers has prioritized getting healthy over assuring home court in the first round, the Celtics can clinch home court tonight if they beat the Bucks and Atlanta loses in Dallas, which may or may not be resting some of its key players.

Youngsters. Starting in place of the injured Carlos Delfino (groin) and Luc Mbah a Moute (knee), Tobias Harris stepped up with 15 points (7/12 fg) and a career-high 13 boards last night, while also playing a personal-high 37 minutes. Larry Sanders also stuffed the box score in returning from his two-game suspension (32 minutes, 12 pts, 5 blk, 4 reb, 4 stl, 3 ast) while Jon Leuer not only suited up but started (21 min, 8 pts, 4/8 fg, 6 rebs). Along with the Bucks' loss assuring that they would not slip further than 12th in the draft order, that made it a fairly good night for silver lining-seeking Bucks fans.

Skiles. Because, you know.
