The Boston Celtics were able to dominate the Washington Wizards in their last game, winning game 5 123-101. But now they need to win another one in D.C, if they hope to advance onto the next round.
The Washington Wizards just came out flat last outing. Boston outscored them 33-21 in the first quarter, and Washington wasn’t able to fight their way back into the game after that.
They tried their best, but to no avail. The Celtics just continued to score at will, and Washington seemed to have to answer to stopping them.
Boston shot 52.9% from the field, and a red-hot 48.5% from deep.
Because of that, Washington wasn’t able to get their way back into the game. However, they did learn what they can’t do next outing.
Washington learned that they can’t come out with that same lackadaisical play. They did that last game, and Boston pounced on them right from the get go.
So Washington needs to come out of the gates with a ton of energy and hustle. If they can do that, they’ll take this game back to Boston for game 7.
Boston was as perfect as they come last outing. The team came out moving the ball, and clamping down defensively. Washington just seemed to have no answer for them.
And because of that, Boston held on to the lead throughout the whole game.
The Wizards did their best to fight back, but by then it was a little too late. The Celtics had already built a 20 point lead, and their wasn’t enough time for them to get back into it after that.
However, now the Celtics need to do this again, if they hope to end the series in game 6.
But Washington’s playing at home, so this is going to be a challenging one for Boston. That means they need to come out with the same energy as last game, if they hope to end it in D.C.
