Welcome to the final day of the NBA regular season. We’ve got 14 games coming up tonight, and a lot of seeding still to be done. Before we settle in for the end of the campaign, let’s visit with some of the headlines out there from around the league.
Celtics-Raptors: The Celtics secured the No. 7 overall seed in the East last night, thanks to a heart-stopping 95-93 win over the Raptors. Jae Crowder hit the off-balance game-winner during the final second, while Evan Turner and Avery Bradley each put in 14 points for Boston.
The Celtics will see the Cavaliers in the playoffs, while the Raptors will face the Wizards.

Wizards-Pacers: Speaking of the Wizards, they went down to the Pacers yesterday after a nail-biting 99-95 game that took two overtimes to decide.
C.J. Miles put in 25 points in this one, while George Hill managed 24.
The Pacers will clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight in Memphis or a loss by the Nets. Indy is currently holding onto that No. 8 seed.
Suns-Clippers: Chris Paul had his long-range shot working in this one, nailing a career-high six 3-pointers in a 112-101 victory over the Suns. He would finish with 22 points overall.
L.A. is finished with its regular season, and they’ve clinched the No. 3 seed in the West. If the Spurs and Rockets lose their final games tonight, the Clips can move up to that No. 2 spot.
