It's official: The Boston Celtics are locked into the No. 3 seed for the Eastern Conference playoffs.

The C's clinched the No. 3 seed following the 2-seeded Toronto Raptors' win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday. That means the focus now is on who their first-round opponent (No. 6 seed) will be.

Don't miss NBC Sports Boston's coverage of Celtics-Grizzlies, which begins Tuesday at 4 p.m. with Celtics Pregame Live followed by tip-off at 5 p.m. You can also stream the game on the MyTeams App.

As of Sunday, the Philadelphia 76ers (42-27) hold the No. 6 spot with games against the Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Toronto Raptors, and Houston Rockets left on their schedule.

The Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers currently both have 43-27 records and the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds respectively, so any of those three teams are in the running to be Boston's first-round matchup.

The C's will look to improve to 47-23 on the season (4-2 in the Orlando bubble) when they take on the No. 8 Orlando Magic on Sunday evening. Then, they'll wrap up their regular season with matchups against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday and the Washington Wizards on Thursday.
