Celtics could tie for East lead with win over Heat

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics won Saturday night and they didn't even play.

While Boston was getting ready for its Sunday night game against the rejuvenated Miami Heat, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost at home to the Washington Wizards. That left the Celtics just a half-game behind the defending champions for the Eastern Conference lead.

They can draw even with their fourth straight victory over the Heat on Sunday at TD Garden.
