Pistons vs. Celtics: The Subject Of Seeding In The Eastern Conference

It’s amazing to think that two teams, who hold a 12-14 record, are the fourth and fifth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Those two teams are the Boston Celtics and the Detroit Pistons. And those same two teams will be facing each other, tonight.

With a win tonight, the Pistons could move up to the fourth seed in the East. If the Celtics were to win, then they would stay at the fourth seed, and then the Pistons would either stay at the fifth seed or move all the way down to the sixth seed.

For the Pistons to move all the way down to the sixth seed in the East, the Charlotte Bobcats would have to defeat the Toronto Raptors, tonight.

If the Pistons do end up with the fourth seed after tonight’s game against the Celtics, then you might want to take a quick picture of it. It’s something that might not happen again, given the unpredictability of the Eastern Conference.
