For the first time since 2008, when they won the NBA championship, the Boston Celtics are the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. 

While they were certainly expected to be better with the addition of Al Horford, no one was expecting them to take homecourt advantage from LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers. But thanks to a bizarre late season collapse from the Cavs, the Celtics, who won their final three games to close the season, are tops in the East heading into the postseason. 

Wednesday night, the Celtics wrapped up their impressive season with a 112-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks' "B" team. It wasn't so easy, as the Bucks took a 36-25 lead after the first quarter, and were up 88-87 with just over eight minutes to go. But the Celtics used a furious run to close the game and make sure they got the top spot in the East. As it turned out, it wouldn't have mattered, as the Cavs, who were sitting their big three, fell by 15 points to the Raptors

Now, the Celtics will turn their attention to the postseason, as they attempt to win their first series under Brad Stevens. Unlike their previous trips to the playoffs under their young coach, the Celtics will have the pressure of being favorites. 

Their first-round opponent will be the Bulls, who clinched the eighth seed with a 112-73 win over the Nets on Wednesday night.
