so, with the Celtics clinging to a thread of hope that they can get to the #1 seed (yes. it's a long-shot...but still)......Howard gets a call for taking too much time at the free throw line....then tosses the ball away....and the result is a technical and he is suspended for this game............?    man, the league isn't giving us a break (as usual)......our seeding probably comes down to tonight's game and Sunday's game.....both on the road against our two toughest opponents in the East....should be interesting....

meanwhile.....there is also a slight chance that the Lakers could slip a notch....I'd love to see them match up against OakC....especially with Perk providing the big body inside.....the season ending should be interesting....then it's onto the play-offs....Celts in the mix for the fourth consecutive year....thank you Danny..
