The Celtics are a handful of wins from a playoff spot, and a handful of losses from one of the worst records. Which way

The Celtics (17-33) have won two games in a row, and are now just five games out of a playoff spot in the weak Eastern Conference. They are currently the 8th worst team in the NBA, based on record.

At the same time, they are a handful of losses away from having the second or third worst record in the NBA . . . therefore assuring themselves a top pick in what looks to be a very deep draft.

We already know there are two sides here: fans who want them to win and make the playoffs, and fans who want to see them tank and end up with a top pick in the NBA draft.

Our question to you is... which way are they trending? Where do you see them ending up when it's all said and done. Will the long season take its toll and put the C's further down the pack, or will Rajon Rondo carry them to a better record and even a chance at the postseason?
