Because the 76ers are all but dead, it pretty much assures every current 1-8 seed in the East a spot in the postseason once it arrives. That's good news for the Celtics, because they've struggled this season against plenty of the teams that won't be making playoff appearances - in both conferences. Don't pin it all on injuries, either. The C's took the Heat to the final second without Kevin Garnett one game before losing to the Hornets - for the second time - with Garnett. It all comes down to having the right attitude and mindset against those "bad" teams.
