Carroll's Keys: Magic at Celtics 

April, 18, 2012
The Boston Celtics are trailing the Indiana Pacers, who are in third place in the East, and might like a 4-5 matchup with the Atlanta Hawks in the first round. If so, look for Doc Rivers to rest at least one or two of his star players over the next week.

The Orlando Magic find themselves in a very difficult position with four of their last five games against playoff teams. With Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu and possibly Glen Davis out for the foreseeable future, the team is desperately trying to avoid dropping from the sixth seed and into a tough first-round matchup with the Chicago Bulls or Miami Heat.

Key Injury: Glen Davis
