Scoreboard Watching: Knicks, Bulls Shuffle the Deck

Things are staying fluid in the Eastern Conference Playoff chase, with the Hawks and Bulls just percentage points apart in the race for the #5 seed, and the Pacers and Knicks in similar positions in the quest for #2.

Sunday dawned with the Hawks sitting at #5, thinking about the Brooklyn Nets, but ended with the team back at #6 as the Bulls tipped the Pistons 95-94 (their 18th straight win over Detroit) to reclaim the edge.

Meanwhile, the Knicks continued to show playoff form as they pasted the Celtics 108-89 for the team’s 8th straight win, which in addition to moving the Knicks back ahead of the Pacers at #2, it also did the Hawks a solid by knocking the Celtics back to 2.5 games behind Atlanta for #6.

Got all that?

If the playoffs started today: #6 Hawks vs. #3 Pacers
