BACK FROM THE DEPTHS
Leon Powe had 22 points and nine rebounds in Boston's 101-78 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday that not only clinched home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, but set the NBA record for biggest single-season turnaround. The Celtics improved to 61-15. That's 37 more wins that last season's 24-58 disaster. The previous best turnaround was San Antonio going from 20-62 to 56-26 in 1997-98, the year they got Tim Duncan with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

CLINCHED

PLAYOFF PATTER
Hedo Turkoglu scored 23 points, Rashard Lewis added 21 and the Orlando Magic locked up the Eastern Conference's No. 3 playoff seed with a 101-86 win Saturday over the Cleveland Cavaliers. ... Vince Carter scored 21 of his 32 points in the second half and the New Jersey Nets beat the struggling Toronto Raptors 99-90, snapping a four-game losing streak and keeping their faint playoff hopes alive. Despite the win, the Nets' magic number for being eliminated from postseason contention was reduced to two when Atlanta beat Philadelphia earlier Saturday.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Denver's Carmelo Anthony scored 47 points in a 118-115 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night.

SPEAKING
``If you could write a script on the way to clinch home-court, this would probably be it.'' - Celtics coach Doc Rivers after a 101-78 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night that not only clinched home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, but set the NBA record for biggest single-season turnaround. The Celtics improved to 61-15, 37 more wins that last season's 24-58 disaster that led the Celtics to acquire Garnett and Allen.
