What Had Happened Was: 4/13/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
For the first time in almost a decade (2007-08), the Boston Celtics hold the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Before the Celtics defeated the Milwaukee Bucks, 112-94, on Wednesday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Toronto Raptors, 98-83.
The Cavs’ fourth consecutive loss gave Boston home-court advantage in the East.
Gerald Green scored 10 of his 18 points during a 25-2 fourth-quarter run for the Celtics, and Isaiah Thomas scored 10 of the first half’s final 16 points, including eight straight, after being held scoreless until that outburst. The Bucks rested players because their sixth seed was not affected by the outcome.
Thomas finished with 13 points and eight assists.

Think about how much our perceptions of Prince & Rick James are shaped by Chappelle's portrayals in Charlie Murphy's stories
