On Thursday February 8, the Boston Celtics arrive at the Capital One Arena to face the host Washington Wizards Entering the game the Celtics are coming off a loss to the Raptors in their second worst loss of the season.
Prior to the match the Celtics had won four in a row. Likewise the Wizards lost to the Philadelphia 76ers after winning the previous five games.
Last season, the teams split the season series. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Wizards in 187 of their 299 matches.
Following the loss to the Raptors head coach Brad Stevens wasn’t very happy. Stevens said the team chasing Boston in the standings outplayed them on both sides of the court. And, while many pundits site the great Boston defense many seem to forget the Raptors rank third.
What the Raptors did however is pinpoint the offensive issues of this Celtics squad. Greg Monroe has yet to be signed as Danny Ainge wants to have flexibility entering the trade deadline tomorrow.
The Raptors have the same number of losses but have two games in hand over Boston. Therefore the Celtics will be intent on winning because the Raptors play the Knicks who will likely be emotional spent just from the loss of Kristaps Porzingis for the season.
In Kyrie Irving’s return to the court he produced 17 points and 3 assists in just under 22 minutes. Terry Rozier continues to be impressive and led all Celtics with 18 points while adding 4 assists and 5 rebounds.
Marcus Smart remains out after his fight with a picture frame and is said to be on Danny Ainge’s shopping list.
Bradley Beal can’t seem to get through a season without putting his foot in his mouth. This time he made the comment “Everyone gets to eat” in reference to the high assist rate during the Wizards winning streak and with John Wall out.
Although Wall took the high road he was clearly annoyed by the comment citing the fact Beal is probably the recipient of the most of his dimes.
Perhaps head coach Scott Brooks should employ a communication coach since the earlier season closed door season apparently resulted in players feelings being hurt instead of resolving the issues.
In the loss to the Sixers the Wizards had five players posting double digit scoring with Beal leading the way (30).
