The Boston Celtics [1] locked up the second seed in the Eastern Conference after the Orlando Magic [2] lost to the New Jersey Nets [3] on Saturday night. Not only did the Magic fall to the third spot, they also lost Hedo Turkoglu [4] in the fourth quarter after he suffered a sprained ankle. They were already playing without Rashard Lewis (knee). The Celtics are 2.5 games ahead of the Magic and four behind the Cleveland Cavaliers [5], who they face on Sunday afternoon.
