C's to open playoffs on Sunday

By Chris Forsberg

The time and location will be determined by the outcome of tonight's final batch of regular-season games, but the league announced Thursday that the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks will open the Eastern Conference playoffs on Sunday.

The two teams are still vying for home-court advantage (the Celtics need a win over the Bucks and the Hawks to fall to the visiting Mavericks). The full first-round schedule will come out after all of Thursday's action has been completed.
