Tonight, the Celtics will wrap up the regular season when they head north of the border to play the Raptors. This game couldn't matter less. But, it also couldn't matter more. In my opinion, they should win this for the city of Boston. Here are tonight's five things: 5. DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE RAPTORS: This game is Toronto's last game of the year. So obviously they will play their hearts out. At this point, they have nothing to lose. If the Celtics are going to win this one, they'll have to earn it. 4. BETTER SHOOTING FROM PIERCE: In Orlando, Paul Pierce shot a dismal, 4/12 from the field. He might not play tonight, but if he does, he'll need to improve this. He needs to get hot before they head to New York. 3. GIVE WILLIAMS AND WHITE A LOT OF PLAYING TIME: They don't really need to do this to win, but they should just because they should. These two don't play a bunch, so it'd be nice of Doc to give them their chance to impress. 2. BETTER SHOOTING FROM GREEN: If Green plays tonight, he'll need to shoot better. Against the Magic, Green shot just 6/17 from the field in 36 minutes. They'll need this guy to lead them in the playoffs. The playoffs start today. 1. WIN FOR BOSTON: The least this team can do on the court for the dismantled city of Boston is win a dumb basketball game. That city's going through a rough time, they need something to lift their spirits. Tip-off for this one will be at 8:00 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE and SNET.
