The NBA broke ties regarding the order of the 2012 NBA draft on Friday, and the Boston Celtics are pegged for first-round picks No. 21 (their own) and No. 22 (via the Clippers). Boston is also slated for second-round pick No. 51.

The Clippers won a tiebreaker with Atlanta -- Boston's first-round playoff opponent -- earning the better first-round draft position. Boston acquired that pick in the deal that sent Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City in February 2011.
