Celtics set for ‘playoff’-like atmosphere

WALTHAM – Barring a miracle, the Celtics won’t be playing in the playoffs this season, which isn’t exactly breaking news. But this week they’ll experience one element that the playoffs offer, as they’ll face the same team in consecutive games over a few days.

First, the Celtics will play the Toronto Raptors twice in three days (Wednesday in Boston, Friday in Toronto) before playing Chicago twice in two days (Sunday in Boston, Monday in Chicago).
