Doc Rivers admits it. He may have glanced up at the out-of-town scoreboard during tonight's game. And he may have noticed that Orlando lost. But he insists he doesn't care.

"I didn’t do a ‘hip hip hooray’ or anything," said Rivers. "I couldn't care less, honestly. But I just saw the score.”

Orlando's loss, coupled with Boston's win, gives the Celtics a one-game lead over the Magic for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. The teams are tied in the loss column with 19 apiece. The Cavaliers remain five games up for the best record in the East.

"We’re fighting for the second slot," said Eddie House. "We’re working, looking to try and catch Cleveland, but at the same time we’re gonna try to win as many games and hopefully we can sneak in there. Right now it’s looking tough.”
