With the Toronto Raptors losing 110-99 to the Boston Celtics at TD Garden on Saturday night, the Houston Rockets have locked up the NBA's best record in 2017-18.

They'll now have home-court advantage throughout the entire playoffs as a result.

Houston secured the top seed in the Western Conference on Thursday with the reigning NBA champion Golden State Warriors falling to the Milwaukee Bucks at Oracle Arena. It's the first time since 2014 that a team other than the Warriors has finished in first.
