Celtics at home against Suns
BOSTON -- Complacency could be creeping in for the Celtics, who are nonetheless cruising toward the top seed in the Eastern Conference.
Despite dropping their last two overall, Boston still holds a five-game lead and the tiebreaker over Detroit for the number 1 seed in the East with 12 games to play.
The Celtics host the Phoenix Suns tonight -- who have no such margin for error as they battle for the West's top spot.
The Suns -- one of only two teams Boston hasn't beaten this season -- look to complete a season sweep when they visit the Celtics.
The Celtics have lost three straight games only once this season.
They haven't dropped three in a row at home since losing the final four games at TD Banknorth Garden last season.
