Tip: 7:30pm Court: TD Garden Watch it: CSN Hear it: WEEI
Referees: Greg Willard, Eli Roe and Zach Zarba
The Celtics beat the Wizards 94-86 last night in Washington.
Get it to: Rajon Rondo
He lived up to my nickname “The Maestro” last night, pulling all the right strings at all the right times. Why not go back to the well again? Rondo has averaged 16.6 points and 11.5 assists in the last eight games against Washington.
Gotta stop: Javale McGee
The Wizards big man put up 16 points and 14 rebounds (8 offensive) last night. Those numbers came against a relatively fresh Celtics front court. Am I crazy to think he’ll improve upon those numbers against a fatigued Celtics front court?
The Wild Card: The Celtics creaky joints
As much as the Celtics dominated the Wizards 24 hours ago, you can’t underestimate the back-to-back factor. It always affects Boston. Will Doc Rivers go to his bench early and often?
How we see it goin’ down
The Celtics may be tired in this rematch, but the Wizards are still bad. I’ll take fatigued over bad any day. Boston pulls away in the 3rd quarter and wins this one 101-91.
