Magic 95 @ Pistons 102
The Pistons moves past the Magic in the fourth quarter for a 102-95 victory. Greg Monroe had 22 points and 11 rebounds, and Ben Gordon added 18 points for Detroit. Former pal Glen Davis, who started at center in Howard's place for a second staight game, led Orlando with a career-high 31 points. The Magic have lost four straight, equaling their longest skid of the season. The Celtics now are just one game behind the Magic in the East. The Magic are now the 5th seed, and I believe the best matchup in the first round for the Celtics.The Celtics, and Magic are tied in the loss column with 22 losses.
Knicks 104 @ Pacers 112
The Pacers rallied from 17 points down late in the third quarter to take a 112-104 victory on Tuesday night. The Pacers now take over the 3rd seed with a loss from the Magic. The Celtics are 1.5 GB from the Pacers.
76ers 93 @ Heat 99
James scored 14 straight Miami points in the fourth quarter and finished with a season-high 41, helping the Heat clinch a playoff spot with a 99-93 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. The Heat revended something last night. With the Sixers losing the Celtics are 1.5 ahead of the Sixers for the Atlantic dvision title.
