Who’s the Beasts of the NBA East?
As the NBA regular season winds down, the race for the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference has began to heat up. The Chicago Bulls (53-19) hold a 2 1/2 game lead over the Boston Celtics (50-21) and a 3 game edge over the Miami Heat (50-22). And with 3 weeks left in the regular season, anything can still happen. The Bulls have the easiest path to home court advantage, with their toughest matchup remaining on the schedule coming on April 7, when they host the Celtics. Boston, who has been having chemistry issues of late, follow the Chicago game three days later by facing the surging Heat in South Beach. Click the image to enlarge.
