Celtics Clinch Atlantic Division Crown

The Boston Celtics have clinched the 2010-11 Atlantic Division title, and they didn't even have to play a game to do it.


Following the New York Knicks' 100-95 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, the Celtics lead the Knicks by 14.5 games and are 14 games up on the Philadelphia 76ers, a team they have defeated twice this season.


This marks the fourth straight season that Boston has won the Atlantic Division. The last time a team other than the Celtics won the division was in 2006 when the Toronto Raptors went 47-35 record.
