There were several games played on Friday that had playoff implications. The Celtics-Heat game was one of the bigger games. With the loss, the Heat lost hope of moving up to the 4th seed and will not have home court in the first round. With their win over the Heat and the Magic loss to the Knicks, the Celtics now are 2 games up on the Magic for the 2nd seed and have a little breathing room going into Sunday's game in Cleveland. The Lakers loss to the Blazers also gives Cleveland a little breathing room at the top.
Here are the results of tonight's games to watch - Winners are in bold Cleveland at Philadelphia Indiana at Atlanta Miami at Boston New York at Orlando New Jersey at Detroit Lakers at Blazers

No teams moved up or down, but the loss ends Miami's bid for the 4th seed and moves them just one game ahead of Philly for the 5th seed.
